Hook of the Day - Dillinger Escape Plan with Mike Patton "When Good Dogs Do Bad Things" & "Like I Love You"

by Wayne Graham

All of the Hooks So Big contributors are, to one degree or another, fans of the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan. When they released Ire Works last fall, many were quick to label the band as "The Next Faith No More." For those that agree with this assessment, I strongly urge you to check out DEP's excellent Irony is a Dead Scene EP if you haven't already. In fact, check this one out if you DON'T agree with that assessment. At one point during DEP's early days, they opened for Mr. Bungle and Mike Patton became a fan. When DEP found themselves in between lead singers, Patton temporarily filled in and they documented the collabo with said EP.

It's an amazing 20 or so minutes of madness. The best track is probably "When Good Dogs Do Bad Things", a song the band still performs. Here's Patton + DEP blasting through that number at a New Year's Eve 2002 gig.

And, what the hell, here's the guys doing their cover of Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You" at the same gig. Say what you want about JT, but this is one hell of a catchy-ass song. Patton + DEP hardly do anything to alter it, and it goes over huge.

Much thanks to "HolgerregloH" for posting these fantastic clips.

There's a reason why JT is on top. Because his shit is good. He's not just flash, he's got the substance to back it up. I've got both of his cds. Actual cds, not just digital copies. He's one charming mutherfucker
