Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Sick Puppies – Brain Stew/Say My Name

I love finding really weird covers, and covers that pull from outside of the rock genre. This cover by the Sick Puppies does both! The instrumental behind this cover is the riff from Green Day’s Brain Stew and the lyrics are borrowed and adapted from the Destiny’s Child tune Say My Name. I know what you’re thinking, that must sound like sh*t! But trust me, it actually works with original Sick Puppies vocalist Shimon Moore’s screaming delivery! The track was supposed to be included on the first ever Sick Puppies album Welcome To The Real World, which was only released in Australia in 2001. However the track never made the album because the record label behind Destiny’s Child threatened to sue the band if it was released. Thankfully this weird baby of a tune was already recorded and found it’s way out into the world. Take a listen and appreciate the track in all of it’s illicit glory!

Ox’s Blog: New Rock From 10 Years – Burnout

Yesterday 10 Years premiered another new tune from their upcoming album (how to live) As Ghosts. The track is called Burnout and it joins Novacaine as the second song released from their 8th studio album which is scheduled to drop on Rocktober 27th. The band has a tour scheduled with Red and Otherwise but no Colorado dates are on the itinerary as of yet. Take a listen to the new track and let me know what you think!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Starset – Space Oddity

Starset, the band from outer space, has a cover about space! It’s almost like they planned it that way… The track is Bowie’s much covered Space Oddity, which the band played a few times live as well as recording this video for Hard Drive with Lou Brutus. The cover is very stripped down with acoustic guitars, a box drum, and a cello. Take a listen and then catch the visitors from the stars as they land at the High Elevation Rock Festival this Friday.

Ox’s Blog: Halestorm New Album Teaser, Sex Saddles and Indian Food?!

Halestorm has been in the studio working on the follow up to 2015’s Into The Wild Life. The band posted a few Instagram photos and the video below. Even though it’s a short video I get bad mental images of sex saddles and Indian food together, you’ll have to watch the video to understand… Don’t forget to catch Halestorm this Friday as they take the stage in Denver for the High Elevation Rock Festival!

Ox’s Blog: Linkin Park Releases Emotional Tribute Video for Chester Bennington with One More Light

Earlier today Linkin Park released a new video for their song One More Light. The video is a touching and emotional tribute to Chester Bennington. It incorporates live performances of the song as well as other behind the scenes and early live show clips. It was also announced that the band will be doing a special one time tribute concert for Chester which will take Rocktober 27th in California at the Hollywood Bowl. Those tickets go on sale soon and the show is likely a once in a lifetime experience for the most hardcore Linkin Park fans.

Ox’s Blog: Manson’s NSFW New Video For We Know Where You F*cking Live

Earlier in the week Marilyn Manson released the first new track, We Know Where You F*cking Live, off his upcoming album Heaven Upside Down which drops Rocktober 6th. ¬†Today Manson premiered the video for the new track and it’s pretty messed up and awesome, like you would expect from him. Take a peek!

Ox’s Blog: New Video From Ded – Remember The Enemy

Ded, the kinda dead, but not totally, rockers have recruited Limp Bizkit front man Fred Durst for the video to their latest single Remember The Enemy. You can find the track on the band’s album Mis-an-thrope and you can catch them at the High Elevation Rock Festival on Saturday the 23rd.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Foo Fighters – Let There Be Rock

The Foo Fighters are back, delivering a new cover right before their album Concrete and Gold drops on Friday. The Foo’s were recently on BBC 1 and recorded a cover of the AC/DC classic Let There Be Rock. The tune is the title track off AC/DC’s third worldwide album, which hit in 1977. My favorite part of this video is seeing the intensity on Grohl’s face. At times he has to read the lyrics and then at the end he let’s it all go and focuses totally on the music. Take a listen!
