Bombastic. Outrageous. Hair. Just three of the small handful of words used to describe Steel Panther. Catch them tomorrow night at the Fillmore in Denver, and to get you ready here is a cover of the Journey anthem Don’t Stop Believin’. They’ve never stopped believin’ in the 80’s and neither should you.
Rob Zombie recently released the single Well, Everybody’s F*cking in a UFO off the upcoming album The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser which comes out at the end of April. The song is crazy and the frenetic style in which Zombie sings makes it a little difficult to tell what exactly he is saying. Here comes a lyric video for the song, to the rescue! WARNING: The song is un-edited for language and the video itself contains material that could be considered objectionable if you’re watching it around the office (just not the Kilo offices, it’s cool here). Dig it!
This month we were treated to a stop on The End, the final tour for Black Sabbath, as well as a show just last night from Megadeth at the Fillmore in Denver. In tribute to both of those concerts, and bands, let’s hump the covers off on this Wednesday with a tribute to Sabbath from Megadeth, a cover of the tune Paranoid, from the NIB release in ’94. Yes, as you expect it’s f’ing awesome and they shred. So check it out now, maybe even a few times.

A few weeks ago Jack Black was on a South Korean tv show, and I think the goal of the tv show was to compete to become the next president of South Korean. I don’t know. But I believe he won the competition and subsequently is the new head of state for South Korea, maybe? Perhaps you’ll have better luck figuring out what the hell is going on in this video.
I’ve been on a big Maynard kick lately with the return of Tool on tour, plus new Puscifer and a tour there which is stopping at the Pikes Peak Center on March 20th. So this week I’m going to feature of the John Lennon classic Imagine as recorded by A Perfect Circle for their eMOTIVe album from 2004. So sit back and chill along with me as we Hump The Covers Off on a Wednesday.
From the minds that brought you heavy metal xmas cards come heavy metal Valentine’s Day cards. Even though it might be too late to get them shipped to you in enough time for this Valentine’s any time is a good time to send someone a card with Lemmy that says “Love Me Like A Reptile”! If you want to order yours you can do so here, just make sure to send me the Wendy O. Williams one!
In the last few months the Disturbed cover Sound of Silence has been everywhere. Disturbed isn’t the only band to cover the Simon and Garfunkel tune though, in 2008 The Smashing Pumpkins had a short tour where they covered the song live. This version is vastly different from both the original and the Disturbed cover in that it is a lot faster and louder. I know, the Pumpkins are louder and faster than Disturbed, it’s weird to think about considering recent history, but it’s true. Alright, enough with the chatter, check out this blistering cover now.
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!
