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!
