Have you ever wanted to control a moshpit? Make people go as hard and as fast in the pit as you want? Control them like puppets? Of course you do! Now with the help of Beartooth you can do exactly that. Play God and make the people dots dance to your every whim. Do you want a moshpit or a circlepit? Do you want people to lost their f*cking minds or just casually slam into each other? You decide.
Mea culpa, I forgot to post last week’s Hump The Covers Off, I had the post ready to go and just blanked on actually hitting post. Oops! So this week to make up for it I am going to Hump The Covers Off in a menage a trois, three bands, same tune. Today Realm, Godhead and Letters From The Fire all take on The Beatles Elenor Rigby, each with different results. Let’s kick it off with thrash metal rockers Realm. This track can be found off their album Endless War.
Up next we have Elenor Rigby from Godhead. Arguably Godhead’s most successful single from the album 2000 Years of Human Error. And no, this isn’t a Billy Corgan side project.
Finally we have Letters From The Fire with their take on Elenor Rigby off of their self-titled debut EP.
Japan, home to used panty vending machines and sex robots brings us the next great television hit, handjob karaoke! The show is actually called Sing What Happens, but what happens is a string of guys try to sing karaoke while getting attended to by an attractive “nurse” to see who can last the longest and finish their song.
Excluding the handy I am not sure what is more distracting, the nurse with her nipple pinching or the laughing of the commentators. Then I have to ask myself would I go with a short song so I could win the competition or pick something like Stairway to Heaven, ride it out and “lose”?
Either way just remember, baseball, baseball, baseball.
Limited to 3000 and set to be released this coming Saturday, Record Store Day 2015, Stone Sour is dropping an EP with cover’s from Metallica, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and KISS. The EP, titled Meanwhile In Burbank, is being spun on Krank It or Kram It this week with Sid Black at 6pm. Let’s spend this hump day with Stone Sour’s cover of Love Gun from KISS. The version below was from Stone Sour’s 2014 Tour, not the studio version which you will find on the album, if you’re lucky enough to score it. Even though it was filmed in Cleveland it still rocks, so sit back relax and let your Love Gun Hump The Covers Off.
On this hump day we blast the Slipknot tune Eyeless from Bring Me The Horizon. This cover can be found on the BmtH album Count Your Blessings. If you’re only familiar with Bring Me The Horizon from their latest album Sempiternal than you’ll notice that this tune is much harder than you’re used too, but I think it fits in just right with the aggressive nature of Slipknot. No word on when the new BmtH album is going to drop this year, so let’s enjoy this one together to tides ourselves over.
You may have seen Maynard’s charming April Fool’s joke, a “leak” of a new Tool song. If not here it is:
In honor of Tool on this April Fool’s day I give you old Tool that’s not Tool, it is their cover of Led Zepplin’s No Quarter. You might be most familiar with this cover from the album Salival but I found a version from 1994 which surprisingly features Maynard at the front and center, opposed to the shadows that he has been favoring in recent years. Fish and Chips, bitches!
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?
