The monotonous countdown song “99 Bottles of Beer” has long been a time killer on long boring journeys by fidgety teens and young adults.

Now the song has been recreated as a charity single with …you guessed it… 99 metalheads providing the lyrics.

In honor of International Dog Day on August 26, Derek Engemann and John Jarvis of Scour have launched the project to raise funds for Old Dog Haven – an organization that finds homes for older dogs, where they can live out their remaining years with a caring family.

Members of Pantera, Mastodon, Slayer, and Dillinger Escape Plan are among the artists who appear on the song.

Speaking on the project, Derek Engemann said, “This has been an epically fun project involving the entire Metal scene, and even a few Ska bands!  The ’99 Bottles’ has truly shown the good side of humanity during these wild times that we are in. I was amazed at all of the people who were eager to sign up for a verse.”

The song is available for streaming or purchase on all digital and streaming platforms.

A GoFundMe page has also been created for fans who wish to help out at https://www.gofundme.com/f/99-bottles-for-senior-dogs.  Keeping with the theme, the goal is for $9,999.
