Tom Petty passed away earlier this week, as someone with such a long career he has had a lot of his songs covered, so I had quite a few to pick from for tonight. Of all of the covers I listened too this version of Eddie Vedder playing an acoustic cover of I Won’t Back Down in Washington state from 2006 was the one that impressed me the most. Pearl Jam and Vedder have covered this tune a lot, both acoustic and electric, but this one stood out the most. RIP Tom, enjoy. For more Hump The Covers Off check out my blog...read more

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...read more
