Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Manson – Eye

This week we Hump The Covers Off with Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins. You might catch something very similar to this if you’re headed to their co-headlining gig at Red Rocks on Monday. The first video is the Pumpkins and Manson teaming up and double teaming the songs Eye and The Beautiful People. This video was shot for the 1997 Bridge School Benefit, a yearly show that brings in big names in rock, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Southern California. Enjoy the tunes, and if you’re going to the show on Monday, see ya there!

For an encore we go more current, with Manson on vocals and the Pumpkins taking instrumental duties on the tune Third Day of a Seven Day Binge off The Pale Emporer, Manson’s newest album.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with OTEP – Breed

There are a handful of bands that seem to routinely have their songs covered; The Beatles, Metallica, Black Sabbath, and Nirvana. This week take a trip back to 2007 and the third album from OTEP, The Ascension. On this release OTEP channels the grit and growl that was Kurt Cobain’s vocals with her cover of Breed. I don’t know if ever I have ever heard such a great matchup of song to singer for a cover. Let’s stop wasting time, enjoy!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Disturbed – Midlife Crisis

This week on Hump The Covers Off we feature two bands who recently jumped back into the spotlight after hiatuses, Disturbed and Faith No More. Disturbed covered the Faith No More song Midlife Crisis in 2011 on the album The Lost Children. This isn’t the most obscure cover, but it still rocks and it’s good to see both bands back on their feet and rocking again, so rock along and enjoy!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers off with Nothing More – We’re In This Together Now

Tonight we Hump The Covers Off with Nothing More. You’re probably familiar with their hits This Is The Time, Mr. MTV and their latest, Jenny, as well as their extensive touring schedule which has taken them through Colorado half a dozen times over the last year and a half. That touring schedule hasn’t stopped and they will be at the Black Sheep this coming Monday, the 22nd of June. In anticipation of that show I have decided to feature them in this week’s Hump The Covers Off where they take on Nine Inch Nail’s We’re In This Together Now. The band loves playing around with vocal and instrumental effects which work really well for this industrial tune now with an acoustic spin, take a listen.

Ox’s Blog: On the bus with Herpe and The Dark Weiner (NSFW)

1o Years is in town at the Black Sheep tonight and in honor of the kickass show I decided to dig up this clip of Herpe and The Dark Weiner giving a tour of the 10 Years tour bus. There is some strong language, so don’t watch at work, or just quit your job.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Zach Myers – Everlong

Doing a cover of another band’s tune acoustically can prove to be a challenge on occasion. Especially when that band has done a very well known acoustic version of that song already, like in the case of the Foo Fighters and their song Everlong. But Zach Myers of Shinedown doesn’t shy away in this chilling rendition of famous Foo tune. As a bonus I’ve included the Foo acoustic version of Everlong too.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Sepultura – Symptom of the Universe

Tonight as we Hump The Covers Off I also throw you a concert warm-up. Sepultura is headed to the Summit Music Hall on the 13th of June, just ten days from now, so I thought it would be appropriate if we feature something from them. How about this shredding, and at the same time funky, cover of Black Sabbath’s Symptom of the Universe? Yeah, that hits the spot. Enjoy, mf’ers!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Sick Puppies – Cherub Rock

Today we throw down on another cover of my favorite band, the Smashing Pumpkins, this time by Sick Puppies and their rendition of Cherub Rock. You may not know but Sick Puppies got noticed for their covers of Pumpkins tunes and turned it into a record deal when they first got started. This cover starts out mellow and then cranks up the intensity halfway through to give it a very unique feel compared to the original. Check it out.
