To celebrate the release of the limited-edition Ghost White Hellcat acoustic guitar, Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong performed a few stripped-down tracks at the Fender Artist Showroom in Burbank, Calif.

First to be revealed is "Black Lung," which was originally on Rancid's 1998 album, "Life Won't Wait." Flanked by brothers Kevin, Justin and Jesse Bivona of the Interrupters, Armstrong's newest signature instrument stands out among this punk anthem.

Said Armstrong: "I stopped by Fender the other week with my friends in The Interrupters to play some songs on my new Fender Ghost White Hellcat Acoustic. Hope you guys dig it.”


Fender has toasted Bay Area punk icon Tim Armstrong with his very own acoustic guitar model, the Fender Hellcat Acoustic Guitar. Armstrong is now showing off the model with an unplugged though juiced-up run-through of older Rancid cut "Black Lung."

Filmed at the Fender Artist Showroom in Burbank, CA, the performance finds the punk lifer working his fingers across a fretboard featuring inlays of skulls and the hair-raising Hellcat logo. Though it's quite stripped-down from what's heard on Life Won't Wait, Armstrong still uses his patented gravelly grumble on the cut, while a walking acoustic bass line ramps up the energy.
