Last year Roadie Relief formed the collective band Kings Of Quarantine, and recruited members from rock bands to take part in cover songs to benefit the fundraiser. They had members of Anthrax, Korn and more covering Faith No More's We Care A Lot, and more recently members of Limp Bizkit, Mastodon and In Flames covered Jane’s Addiction’s Mountain Song.
