THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER – “Go To Hell”

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have shared a cover of Megadeth‘s “Go To Hell.” As the band explain below, they had hoped to potentially get it included in the newly released film ‘Bill & Ted Face The Music‘. They commented:

“We covered this Megadeth song from the “Bogus Journey” sequel in hopes that we could weasel our way on to the Bill and Ted 3 soundtrack. It didn’t pan out, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t rule”

While the cover didn’t make the cut for the film and its soundtrack, new songs from Mastodon, Lamb Of God and more did.

On the morning of January 15, 1947, a mother taking her child for a walk in a Los Angeles neighborhood stumbled upon a gruesome sight: the body of a young naked woman sliced clean in half at the waist.

The body was just a few feet from the sidewalk and posed in such a way that the mother reportedly thought it was a mannequin at first glance. Despite the extensive mutilation and cuts on the body, there wasn’t a drop of blood at the scene, indicating that the young woman had been killed elsewhere.

The ensuing investigation was led by the L.A. Police Department. The FBI was asked to help, and it quickly identified the body—just 56 minutes, in fact, after getting blurred fingerprints via “Soundphoto” (a primitive fax machine used by news services) from Los Angeles.

The young woman turned out to be a 22-year-old Hollywood hopeful named Elizabeth Short—later dubbed the “Black Dahlia” by the press for her rumored penchant for sheer black clothes and for the Blue Dahlia movie out at that time.
