Autostraddle Exclusive: Holly Miranda Covers The Deftones’ “Passenger” For You

Last week one of my favorite artists, Holly Miranda, recorded and emailed through a cover of one of my favorite songs. I’ve had a totally stupid grin plastered on my face ever since, it’s a really special thing that I love and so I want to play it for you.

The track is called “Passenger” and it’s originally by alt-metal band Deftones (feat. Maynard from Tool). It’s either about trusting someone completely or giving them head in a car, who really knows. You can hear the Deftones version here.

This cover was recorded as part of Holly’s PledgeMusic campaign, which is raising money for her next album. Plenty of great exclusives are still on offer if you want to get behind it.

    This has been one of my favorite songs for YEARS, thank you Crystal!

    (also AS readers might be interested to know that there is a live video of that Paramore chick singing the Maynard parts with the Deftones floating around on youtube)
