I like it when a band goes outside of their genre for a cover tune. Like last week’s Three Days Grace cover today Hell Or Highwater leave their lane for a cover of OutKast’s Ms. Jackson. The rap duo originally dropped this track in 2000 on their Stankonia album and Hell Or Highwater have brought it back as part of their live shows recently. The band also dropped this video for the cover just last month. It’s not the usual fare for the Hump The Covers Off, but it’s fun and catchy, take a listen!
Three Days Grace has been in the studio a while working on a followup to 2015’s Human album. It sounds like we will get that new album this year. In the meantime at the end of 2017 the band posted a cover on their YouTube channel from when they were just messing around in the studio. The track is called You Don’t Get Me High Anymore by electronic/alternative band Phantogram. The original was released lin 2016 and Three Days Grace mentioned in the video description they are a fan of the song so one day they decided to give it a harder rockier edge and record it. I love the cover, it sounds a lot different from the original, take a listen and let me know what you think!

2018 is days away and for me there is one cover that typifies New Years Eve more than any other. And that is Jimi Hendrix, live at the Fillmore in San Francisco in 1969, doing a killer version of Auld Lang Syne. I say let the confetti fall, pop the champagne, kiss the one you love, and krank the fuck out of this song on Sunday night!
I’m just rolling back into the studio after 5 days off for Christmas, and I missed a couple of videos over the last few days, maybe you did too! So here is the latest from Five Finger Death Punch, a very heavy video for their cover of the Offspring’s Gone Away. Then there is a sillier, lighthearted video from Papa Roach for the track Traumatic, which thankfully isn’t actually traumatizing.
