Sevendust is rolling into the Springs two weeks from now and I just realized I have never featured the band on Hump The Covers Off before! They don’t do a lot of covers but I was able to track down a cover of LL Cool J’s Going Back To Cali which appeared a covers album called Take A Bite Outta Rhyme: A Rock Tribute To Rap from 2000! Sevendust kranks up the heavy for this catchy cover and it got stuck in my head real quickly, I was humming the tune all afternoon. So take a listen, but don’t blame me when you’re singing...read more

Metallica loves their covers. Recently Hetfield and Ulrich have been taking breaks on the Hardwired Worldwire tour allowing Hammett and Trujillo a few minutes alone on stage to do whatever they want. Whatever they want has turned out to be an impressive number of covers, usually relating to the region that they are playing. Last October the band was in England and decided to pay tribute to a local band gone big, Black Sabbath, with their cover of War Pigs. Gather your generals and take a listen!

In This Moment released their latest video Black Wedding with Rob Halford. It’s their riff on the hit White Wedding.

Tonight we go back to the late 90’s with Orgy and their smash hit cover of Blue Monday. The success of the band is tied to the track, their first single, which launched them on to the stages of Ozzfest and The Family Values Tour. Orgy’s debut album Candyass sold two million copies, an unheard of number in 2018 with record sales still in decline. The original Blue Monday was released by New Order in 1983 and was a hit for them as well. So put on your best cyberpunk googles and forearm bands as we hit play and travel back to 1998....read more
