Shabos Zmiros – Yidcore's "They Tried to Kill Us, We Survived, Lets Eat!"

So I’ve been falling down on the Shabos Zmiros job pretty hardcore these last few months, but I’m back! I’ve still been storing up videos and songs, awaiting the right time to re-institute the Shabos Zmiros weekly feature here at Jewschool.
This week I bring you Australian klezpunk in the form of YIDCORE! It’s not bad, as far as punk goes. Here’s their current music video for “They Tried to Kill Us, We Survive, Lets Eat!”

It gets better! Yidcore came to my attention because of this piece at Shemspeed over the summer, in which they had a tiny little interview with the lead singer ahead of their show at Limmud Oz. After they brief interview, the video continues with a spot-on punk cover of Yerushalayim shel Zahav and then the fastest rendition of Dayeinu that I’ve ever wanted to end.

And even better! “If I Were a Rich Man!”

And on that note, Shabat Shalom, jblogosphere.

One thought on “Shabos Zmiros – Yidcore's "They Tried to Kill Us, We Survived, Lets Eat!"

  1. Just want to say I love Yidcore and have been a devoted fan for most of the decade. Their version of Schlock Rock’s “Minyan Man” makes me weepy in the best way.
