AC/DC are bringing their sold out show to Denver at the Pepsi Center on Monday. If you got qualified for our ticket giveaway tomorrow, good luck! In celebration of the upcoming show let’s rock out to the Chuck Berry tune School Days, as covered by AC/DC on their 1975 album T.N.T. This is an old school classic, and it is considered by many to be one of the first rock songs. So hit play, close your eyes, and imagine that you’re hearing this one live!
Breaking Benjamin has been on tour and at a recent stop in Nashville lead singer Benjamin Burnley hit the mic to pay tribute to Korn with an acoustic version of their tune Clown. There’s not much else to say, it kicks ass so stop wasting time and hit play!
10 years, on tour with P.O.D., dropped a new video today, the title track off their latest album, From Birth to Burial. The visuals for the new video look similar to things I would expect to see in a Tool video, which is pretty sweet because Tool has close to the best visuals around. Check out the video below and let me know what you think!
Rob Zombie recently announced his new album, The Electric Warrior Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser, will be dropping on April 29th. New Zombie rock is very exciting, so today let’s go back in time and check out a cover from Rob Zombie’s first band, White Zombie. The tune I’m Your Boogie Man was originally recorded by the disco group KC and the Sunshine band in 1976. The White Zombie cover is not available on any of their albums as it was recorded for the film The Crow, in ’96 and is on the soundtrack for the film. A video for the tune was recorded which even includes Rob’s brother, Spider One from Powerman 5000, as Dr. Spooky. Check it out and hump on!
Earlier in the week we heard the news that David Bowie passed away from a battle with cancer. On Twitter various musicians were paying tribute to Bowie, as happens when a major figure in the music community passes away. One of those paying tribute was Spider One from Powerman 5000 who tweeted a link to this song, his cover of Bowie’s classic Space Oddity. This version can be found on the PM5K album Clones, Copies & Replicants from 2011 and was released by Bowie all the back in 1969 on the record Love You Till Tuesday. Enjoy this the out of this world cover.
This week I feature a cover tune that I have been wanting to do for a while, but haven’t had a chance too with all the time off around the holiday’s. Now is the time. You might have heard this one already, it was released on Disturbed’s newest album, Immortalized. In true Disturbed fashion they included an old school track that doesn’t have a normal hard rock vibe and gave it their own spin, just like on each previous album. The Sound Of Silence was originally performed by Simon & Garfunkel, this remake sounds darker and to me it feels like it has more weight to the lyrics. Disturbed even produced a music video for this one, so here you go, enjoy, and I’ll catch you next week!

For this week’s Hump The Covers Off I give you a bag full of goodies in the form of Bad Religion’s Christmas covers album called, appropriately enough, Christmas Songs. The full album clocks in at just over 19 minutes, which seems short, but in Bad Religion style they jam nine songs in. So krank this one up around your Aunt Gladys, who won’t be happy it’s loud, but will still appreciate the classics. Have as good of a Christmas as you can, and when you can’t don’t forget that Kilo goes commercial free on Christmas, so you can at least rock out along with us. Enjoy and catch you next week!
