Since its release 26 years ago last month, Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” has been covered by a lot of artists, from Marilyn Manson (perhaps most famously) to Johnny Cash (perhaps most understandably) to Sammy Hagar (perhaps most …who the fuck even knows).

We get it, it’s a good song.

Now Missouri punk trio Radkey have taken the song around the track a few times, and the result is a dizzying punk rock whirlwind that needs less than two minutes to get from Point Gahan to Point Gore.

The band busted the cover out at the recent Reading Festival in the UK, and hopefully they give it a twirl when they head out on a 26-date North American tour this month and next and a 19-show swing across Europe for October and November. Radkey’s run hits Great Scott in Allston on October 2. Full dates down south.

Radkey’s latest album, Dark Black Makeup, is out now.
