Tom Morello, Serj Tankian Team Up On Cover Of Gang Of Four’s ‘Natural’s Not In It’

Rage Against Machine guitarist Tom Morello and System of a Down‘s Serj Tankian teamed up for a cover of Gang of Four‘s “Natural’s Not in It” in commemoration of late guitarist Andy Gill‘s 65th birthday.

“Natural’s Not In It” is a song from the English punk band’s 1979 album, Entertainment!.

Meanwhile, the Morello-Tankian version will appear as the lead single to the upcoming tribute compilation, The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four, due out in May.

Gill died in February 2020 following a brief respiratory illness. Gill was planning to release The Problem of Leisure to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Gang of Four’s landmark album Entertainment!

“Andy loved what Tom and Serj did with this song, the fierceness of their attack and the jet-engine scream of feedback” Gill’s widow Catherine Mayer said in a press release. “This was a track Andy always enjoyed performing. He said their version brilliantly captured all the explosive, danceable energy Natural’s Not In It can create in live performance.”

Tankian added, “It was a real pleasure to work on this track with Tom and honor the legacy of Andy and Gang of Four at the same time.”
