It’s a wonder Queen and David Bowie’s iconic collaboration “Under Pressure” hasn’t already become a pandemic-era anthem. Who among us has not literally watched their good friends screaming “Let me out!” on a video call by this point?
Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie joined Jimmy Fallon and Tonight Show house band The Roots for an abridged 12-part DIY cover of the song on Tuesday, with Urie tackling Freddie Mercury’s soaring vocals and Fallon breaking out a respectable Bowie impression.
The Roots accompanied them on a mix of actual instruments and household objects, ranging from a frisbee to a four-slice toaster and spatula. Proof that making do with whatever you have lying around the kitchen isn’t just for quarantine cooking.
