When you think of Lynyrd Skynyrd, I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is “Free Bird.” That’s the same for me too. Over the years though, I’ve really come to the realization that “Tuesday’s Gone” is a better song than “Free Bird.” That’s just my opinion, and we can talk about that later if you’d like. Anyways, the other night while looking for something mindless to watch, I noticed Happy Gilmore was about to start and so I settled in and watched. As it began I couldn’t help but remember that “Tuesday’s Gone” opens and closes the movie and its the perfect song to do both. So with that in mind, check out this great use of the song in one of the funniest movies ever!

Cover Song: Metallica (Lynyrd Skynyrd)- Tuesday’s Gone

Metallica does a great job covering the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd song “Tuesday’s Gone.”  At Metallica’s 30th anniversary shows, they invited some friends up on stage to join in the cover of this song. Joining them was Pepper Keenan (Down/Corrosion of Conformity), Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains), Jim Martin (Faith No More), and Gary Rossington (Lynryd Skynryd).  Check it out!!
