When I was thinking about what band to choose for my cover today I realized I have not yet featured a tune from Beartooth and that had to change. If you have ever seen Beartooth live you know that their shows are very high energy and their cover of the Ramones Blitzkrieg Bop works perfectly with their frenetic pace. This quick cover was release as a bonus on the Japanese release of Disgusting as well as the deluxe edition, both released in December of 2015. Hit play and get ready to jump out of your chair.
Psychostick, the guys who made the Beer Song, dropped a new video and song on Thanksgiving. N.O.E.L. is a Christmas-ized parody of the System of a Down song B.Y.O.B. I have not been able to get it out of my head! Now it’s your turn!
There is going to be a special treat at the Drowning Pool show tomorrow at the Black Sheep, the 82-year old made famous on America’s Got Talent is going to be joining the band on stage for their performance! John last joined Drowning Pool on stage in Chicago for the Open Air Fest. Now is your shot to catch him live with the band for only the second time ever! I’ve got the last pairs of tickets up for grabs tonight so listen for your chance to win!
Metallica is dropping their new album Hardwired… To Self Destruct on Friday so of course I am going to feature one of their most famous covers, the Bob Seger original, Turn The Page. The original dropped in ’73 and you can find Metallica’s version on the Garage, Inc. album from ’98. The video stars former adult actress Ginger Lynn and was banned from MTV because of the depiction of physical abuse near the end of the video. So let’s rock out and get ready for the new album right around the corner!
Metallica has been on a South American and Central America tour run over the last few weeks leading up to the release of the new album Hardwired… To Self Destruct. The band just posted a video they shot in Guatemala of them playing Master of Puppets to a giant stadium of fans. Check it out!
Time for some early 90’s Seattle nostalgia flashback! Temple of the Dog, the supergroup with Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready and others, are back on the road, minus Vedder, and doing a handful of dates in NYC, LA, Philly, Seattle and San Francisco. While in Philadelphia last week they decided to bust out some cover tunes in between all of the songs from their only album. Check out their version of Black Sabbath’s War Pigs. What do you think of Cornell on vocals channeling his inner Ozzy?
12 Foot Ninja just released an extended music video version of their tune Sick from the new album Outlier. The horror movie themed video runs over nine minutes and features each band member in multiple roles. Take a look!
Marilyn Manson posted a minute long teaser today for the his new song, and album, SAY10. Check out the bloody video below which features a beheaded body at the end that is apparently supposed to be Donald Trump!
BuzzFeed Mexico posted a video with James Hetfield reacting to celebrities and musicians wearing Metallica shirts. He seems to know who most of the photo’s are of and for the most part doesn’t have anything negative to say. At point he even jokes that if someone was wearing a Metallica shirt to be fashionable that they are probably doing fashion wrong since there are more fashionable shirts to wear. Check it out!
Bring Me The Horizon dropped a video for their latest tune off the album That’s The Spirit. The video for Oh No features the band in a room which looks like it could serve as a stand in for the next Dexter murder playing along with the song. There is also a creepy af looking creature that could fit in on a Tool music video set. Things start blowing up, and then the creature thing starts playing the trumpet and it get’s really confusing. Take a look!
