This Wednesday’s Hump The Covers Off takes us back to 2012, The Pretty Reckless playing in L.A. and joined by John Dolmayan of System of a Down for a cover of SOAD’s tune Aerials. Although this song was everywhere and is one of System of a Down’s most popular songs Taylor Momsen is able to bring her own take to it, and I enjoy it. I hope you do as well.
What’s the worst part of owning a cat? Besides being a lonely cat person? Having to deal with the litter box. Well here is a thing about cat scat set to the tune Man In A Box from Alice in Chains. Enjoy?
This week we feature of cover of the Ramone’s Pet Semetery from my favorite crazy fire-loving German rockers Rammstein. Rammstein played this cover quite often during their 2001 U.S. tour, this version includes some of the members of the Ramones as well as the Misfits from the bands NYC stop. I saw Rammstein on this tour at the Fillmore, as well as both of the Colorado stops of the Pledge of Alliegence tour with Slipknot, System of a Down and Mudvayne so this tune brings back a lot of kickass memories.
Week two of Hump The Covers Off finds the band Ill Niño covering my favorite band, The Smashing Pumpkins, and their hit Bullet with Butterfly Wings. This cover is awesome because of the drums they use and the grittier vocals. This version comes off Ill Niño’s album Dead New World. Check it out:

It’s Wednesday, hump day, and today is the day I am going to start my new covers series here on my blog. Each Wednesday I will be featuring a kick ass band throwing down on cool, crazy, or unique covers. Let’s break then champagne on this bitch with Slayer’s cover of Iron Butterfly’s In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
Ever heard of the Seagullmen? Neither had I, before today. But the Seagullmen is the new project with Tool drummer Danny Carey and Mastodon’s Brent Hinds. They, along with guitarist Dimitri Coats, have dropped a couple of tunes. The bands official site is down, but the tunes they released are still up right now, take a listen!
Both of the tracks rock, but The Deep-Sea Diver is f’ing epic and makes me want to move my body in ways which might get me arrested if I were in public. What do you think?
Papa Roach threw down some acoustic tracks in NYC ahead of their current tour with Seether, check ’em out:

Scars with Q&A

Halestorm just dropped the video for their first single, Apocalyptic, off the upcoming album “Into the Wild Life”. Not to be confused with the movie “Into the Wild”, where Emile Hirsch dies at the end. And don’t come after me with that “NO SPOILERS, BRO!!” That movie’s been out for like 8 years. ANYWAY, here’s the video:
