How do you make YouTube covers of classic songs more enjoyable? By wrapping them up with puns of course! YouTuber Cameron Fleury is on the leading edge of this concept with his latest drum covers of Megadeth 's "Hangar 18" with coat hangers.
UFO conspiracy theories , or possibly Hangar 18 , the film based on those theories, inspired drummer Nick Menza to write the lyrics. The intro is a rapidly strummed version of the D minor arpeggio that Mustaine wrote for the Metallica instrumental track "The Call of Ktulu", which was the final Metallica song for which he was given writing credit. Hangar 18 is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio , and it is speculated that an alien aircraft was brought there from Roswell in The cover of Rust in Peace , the album on which the song appears, depicts the band's mascot, Vic Rattlehead , and a number of world leaders viewing an alien in a cryogenic chamber, a clear reference to the track. The song is also particular in that the bass uses a different tuning from the two lead guitars, the bass being in Drop D [ citation needed ] while the guitars are in standard tuning. It tells the fictional story of the life-forms said to be contained in Hangar 18 coming back to life and killing those inside the building before escaping. The "Hangar 18" video is themed after the song's lyrical concept. It depicts the torture of aliens and, at the end, shows all the band members in freezing chambers.
