Gwar Covers The Pet Shop Boys

Gwar

A band that looks like it could be Gwar covered the Pet Shop Boys’ “West End Girls” for the A.V. Club, as part of their Undercover Series. Gwar’s done this twice before for the site. They previously took on the Kansas classic “Carry on Wayward Son” and Billy Ocean’s “Get Out of My Dreams, Get […]

Arch Enemy Streaming Judas Priest Cover

The new Arch Enemy

I wish it were a cover of “Hell Bent For Leather,” but alas, it’s for “Breaking The Law” — the one Judas Priest song most bands massacre. Arch Enemy’s version of “Breaking the Law” follows. The song appears on the group’s tour-only split with Kreator, which is limited to just 1,000 copies worldwide. You can […]

Foo Fighters Cover “War Pigs” On Letterman

Dave Grohl

“War Pigs” by Black Sabbath is one of those songs I feel like everyone ends up covering at some point. I have heard far too many fucking versions of this song in my time, especially since no one ever fucking does anything to change the tune up. Last night, the Foo Fighters began their week-long […]

Check Out This Metal Version Of The “DuckTales” Theme

That's right

I’m posting this merely for shits and giggles. And because this dude can fucking riff. When I was not yet a teen but not necessarily a kid, they had this show on called “DuckTales.” Basically, Disney’s Scrooge McDuck and Donald Duck’s three nephews would go on fucking adventures and shit. I recall there was a […]

KsE Frontman Jesse Leach Covers Mazzy Star

Jesse Leach

Mazzy Star’s one of those bands I used to listen to back in the dizzay, and I wasn’t ashamed to admit I was a fan. Still am. Them, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Hooverphonic, Esthero…I love moody female vocalists soaring above dope sounds, and don’t care who knows. I’m a man, baby. A full grown man. I […]

Primus Cover Tool Live

Primus

And why wouldn’t they? Primus drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander is still recuperating from a surgery that followed a recent heart attack. So, Tool’s Danny Carey is playing with Primus for some shows. Two of those gigs took place this weekend. And guess what? Primus covered Tool’s “Ænema” with Carey. Check out the following fan-shot video […]

Wovenwar, Kyng Frontmen Team On Temple Of The Dog Cover

The boys do their thing

There is a rather cool video viewable at the end of this post. It features Wovenwar vocalist Shane Blay (also of Oh, Sleeper) with Kyng vocalist and guitarist Eddie Veliz. The two team up on a cover of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike,” a song that holds special meaning for me. Not that I […]

Anthrax’s Scott Ian Wouldn’t Mind Being Covered By Gaga

Scott Ian

Lady Gaga walks around, claiming to be this huge metalhead. Sorry, folks. I don’t buy it. I wrote the first article MTV News ran on that broad, based off an interview I helped craft questions for, and she didn’t strike me at that time as having a metal fiber in her body. All I got […]

At The Gates Reveal New Album Cover
