The band is using the song to help people with mental health issues related to COVID. The band’s Ryan Potter says, “I have messages with fans about how they are feeling and struggling with everything.

5. Gary Numan, Pusher
Recommended if you like: 80s industrial
Yes, this is the guy who had a big hit with Cars And Are “Friends” Electric? Late 70s and early 80s. He has maintained a career with a crazy cult following all these years. Ask Trent Rezner, Dave Grohl, or Jack White what they think of Numan and they will be gone forever. Pusher It would be his nineteenth solo album and twenty-first overall.
