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.
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!

A few days back Avenged Sevenfold dropped a video for their newest cover, God Only Knows. The track is available on special editions of their album The Stage. Originally a Beach Boys tune from 1966 classic Pet Sounds the A7X version drops the fun beach vibes for track that starts out with a slow tempo and then picks up with more recognizable deathbat vocals and instrumentals. The video shows a lot of live footage from the bands’ live show with an old school film aesthetic, take a look!

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Super Troopers 2 dropped earlier today! The movie drops on 4-20, and from first looks should be as hilarious as the first one, which came out FIFTEEN YEARS AGO!

Maybe you were there and got the inside info on the upcoming movie! Either way check out the trailer now which features the new Jet tune we are playing, My Name Is Thunder!
