This year marks the 20th anniversary of Korn’s album Follow The Leader. They just announced 3 shows to celebrate the album. This morning I felt the urge to go back and listen to the album and I totally forgot about the hidden track at the end of the album of the cover they did of Cheech and Chong’s “Earache My Ear” with Cheech on vocals.

I was listening back to the Garage Inc Metallica album the other day on my way home from work. While listening it got me thinking about how many great covers Metallica did on that album. There are quite a few songs they covered that in my opinion are better than the original. For example their version of Bob Seger’s “Turn The Page,” as well as their version of Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” is quite possibly better than the original.

Yesterday I shared a really awesome cover with you all. Today I wanted to remind you all of this atrocity that happened at the MTV Icon Metallica show in 2003. This is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever heard in my life. I still remember cringing when I watched this.

I woke up with the Only Living Witness song “December” in my head. While I was looking up different versions, I came across this rad cover Shadows Fall did of the song. Check it out!

I’m sure most of you are like me and get all giddy when you hear a band you really like do a cover of another band you like and that cover is really good. During their recent tour with Pop Evil, Black Map has been doing pre-show meet and greets and mini acoustic sets. At their show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, Black Map’s Ben Flanagan (bass/vocals) and Mark Engles (guitar/vocals), pulled out a surprise cover of Failure’s “Stuck On You” and it turned out great. Check it Out.

In case you didn’t know, Neil Young is one of my all time favorites. I have both my mom and dad to thank for getting me into his music. While I was looking up some songs for an upcoming episode of Audioeclectica Radio (Yes, it is coming back!), I totally remembered this really cool cover Prong (the very underrated Prong, I must say) did of the Neil Young classic “Cortez The Killer.” Check it out and enjoy!!!

If you’ve been living under a rock and have missed this cover Bad Wolves did of The Cranberries classic “Zombie,” now is a great time to listen. Dolores O’Riordan was due to lay down vocals on the cover the day she passed away. The band then released the song and donated proceeds of the song to her children. Today, Bad Wolves released the video they did for the song and I have to say it’s quite a cool homage to The Cranberries. Check it out!
