Watch a Funny New Parody of Alice in Chains’ ‘Man in the Box’
Check out the just-discovered band Kitties in Chains and their rocking new song "Cat in the Box." The above video is really just a perfect cartoon parody of Alice in Chains' "Man in the Box," created by Joey Siler with music by Chris Senter.
You'll find two minutes of scatalogical throwback grunge hilarity, right down to a kitty version of the late Layne Staley's grumbling -- in this case, it comes out as "meow" ... of course.
Siler is perhaps best known as the creator of Phil Anselmo’s "Cooking Hostile," a fake cooking show "starring" the former Pantera frontman -- he'll "teach you the art of shredding ... lettuce" -- and a bunch of songs about food.
With "Cat in the Box," the focus on a feline's bathroom habits, which are typically confined to indoors ("Come ... and scoop ... my s---!"), as the video imagines what a cat must be thinking when he watches his master attending to the litter box ("It came from his butt!").
The original "Man in the Box" was included on Alice in Chains' debut album Facelift, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Pulled as a single in 1991, the song reached No. 18 on Billboard's Album Rock Tracks chart and earned a Grammy nomination in 1992. Staley died of an overdose in 2002. William DuVall took over lead vocals when Alice in Chains reformed in 2005.
