Cover Song: The Unseen (Rolling Stones)- Paint It Black

I really dig when friends of mine make suggestions to me (hint hint wink wink). Yesterday during the chaotic aftermath of the election, my friend Kevin passed this cover of the Rolling Stones “Paint it Black” by underrated punk band The Unseen. This isn’t the best cover, but it is pretty decent. So check it out, and let me know what you think. And thank you Kevin!

Cover Thursday: Hotwire (Rolling Stones)- Let’s Spend The Night Together

I’ve mentioned before that there are certain bands that were really good but didn’t get the due and push they needed. Hotwire is one of those bands for sure. On their Japanese release of their debut album The Routine, they included a cover of The Rolling Stones “Let’s Spend The Night Together.” While this isn’t the best cover, it’s a fun version that is very fitting as a good fun summer time song.

Cover Thursday: Stone Sour (Rolling Stones)- Gimme Shelter

This week I present you with another cover song that I’m torn on. Stone Sour put out a second covers EP and on it was their version of The Rolling Stones “Gimme Shelter.” On one hand there are moments that are really good. Then I think to myself am I hearing this right? I’m interested in what your take is on this classic song being covered.
