I remember back in 1996 when Marilyn Manson released his version of the Eurythmics song “Sweet Dreams” that it would be really cool if one day he did a version of Gerard McMann’s “Cry Little Sister” from The Lost Boys. Well now over 20 years later, my wish has been granted. Marilyn Manson finally did a cover of the song and it’s just what I expected it to be.
So as you can tell I’m still really digging on The Atlas Moth. Since I saw them live a couple weeks back, I’ve been searching for all things related to the band. I recently stumbled upon this cover they did of Pink Floyd’s “Fearless” and I have to say it’s pretty damn good. Check it out and enjoy what The Atlas Moth brings to this Pink Floyd gem.
Ever since I heard the album Seismic by Spotlights, I just can’t get enough of them. They are one of the bright spots in today’s music scene. They have an EP called Hanging By Faith which is out in a couple weeks (June 15 to be exact) which features a really great cover of The Cure’s song “Faith.” Spotlights really knocked it out of the park with their version. It harks back to that era of The Cure but also shows the dynamic range of what Spotlights are more than capable of.
I’m still hoping that one day White Zombie will get back together for at least one show. But at least there is still the music. One of my favorite Kiss songs “God Of Thunder was covered by White Zombie way back when. It’s definitely an interesting cover. Enjoy it!

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.
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!
