Today is officially unofficially Shinedown day! The band dropped a new track called Devil from their upcoming album ATTENTION, ATTENTION, hitting store shelves in May. And I am featuring their cover of the Foo Fighters hit Times Like These for today’s cover tune. This version was recorded an as acoustic track during a stop in Kansas City. The show was recorded for a CD/DVD set called Somewhere In The Stratosphere and was released in 2011.

The Foo Fighters spent this weekend getting ready for their big upcoming tour which will see them at the Pepsi Center in Rocktober. They shared a video on Twitter of them playing John Lennon’s Imagine music to the lyrics of Van Halen’s Jump! I love it, I wish they would play it live during their show, but they probably won’t. The best part of the video is Taylor Hawkin’s call and response “Jump” to Grohl’s vocals. Check it out! Woodshedding for the summer tour has never felt so good….see you out...read more
I have to admit I fell down a rabbit hole with this week’s cover. And I found a few versions so good that I decided to share them all. In late 70’s there was a band called Tubeway Army which featured Gary Numan on vocals. The bands second album, Replicas, had a tune called Down In The Park. In the mid-90’s the Foo Fighters covered Down In The Park for an X-Files album titled Songs In The Key of X. It also found it’s way onto the single for Monkey Wrench as a b-side and onto the covers compilation Medium Rare which was...read more
Dio supergroup Last In Line is headed to Sunshine Studios Live this Friday so why not krank out a killer cover of the bands namesake, from Tenacious D. The D covered The Last In Line for 2014’s tribute album Ronnie James Dio – This Is Your Life. This cover features Jack Black busting out the most epic rock vocals he can muster as they jam. Tenacious D even went on to win a Grammy in 2015 for this performance, so if it’s good enough for the Grammy’s it’s good enough for us. Turn it up loud, and then head out to...read more
Papa Roach dropped their new video for the tune My Medication yesterday for Valentine’s Day. The bondage heavy scenes have me thinking the band has been watching a lot of 50 Shades of Grey on the tour bus. This gets pretty steamy so just make sure granny isn’t around when you watch, unless she’s into that kind of thing!read more
I you’ve don’t know who Mac Sabbath is then you are missing out! The fast food themed foursome cops crazy parodies of Black Sabbath tunes with hilarious results. The band has been through town a few times over the last few years but I’ve never been able to catch them live, don’t make the same mistake I did, go see them at the Marquis Theater up in Denver on Tuesday next week. And I know that Pair-a-Buns isn’t a Paranoid cover but a parody nonetheless it still kicks ass and deserves to have it’s time in the...read more
