English professors' album includes rendition of 'Alma Mater'

A heavy metal version of Central Michigan University's “Alma Mater” is now available through an album created by three English department professors.

“Burnin’ the Eagle” was recorded by Daryl and the Beans, which features Jeffrey Bean on vocals, guitar and bass, Robert Fanning on vocals, guitar and percussion, and Darrin Doyle on vocals, guitar and slide percussion.
