Listen to Prince’s Hard-Rock Version of ‘Let’s Go Crazy’

Prince’s small stature has always allowed him to slip in and out of different genres as he pleases. Soul, funk, pop, and metal were all blended into some sort of purple slurry. That’s why he can take one of his classics, “Let’s Go Crazy,” and seamlessly turn it into a fuzzed-out blues/hard-rock jam with touches of Edgar Winter Group’s “Frankenstein.” Listen below and then go crazy, because Prince requested as much.
