ROB ZOMBIE – Oh those cover songs. Sometimes there are so many bands doing cover songs these days I realistically lose track of many of them. Some cover songs are super fabulous, some are good and some are plain forgettable. Rob Zombie’s cover song of We’re An American Band falls into the category: Super Fabulous. Well, in my Metal opinion it does and this cover of We’re An American Band is:
Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!
Who could possibly argue that Classic Rock wasn’t the meat and potatoes for the evolution of Heavy Metal? I sure can’t. Rob Zombie took this Grand Funk Railroad Rock classic and Zombiefied it to a level of unthinkable Metal bliss and I’m flying high again! I guess when you get Rob Zombie and John 5 together with Piggy D and Ginger Fish, grand Metal miracles happen on an almost too common basis. In other words: Rob Zombie RULES.
I could have easily targeted Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor as Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day; only that’s for… another METAL day. Now, if only the corporate lame-O’s over at The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame would induct Grand Funk Railroad into their prestigious society. What am I thinking? American Midwest Rock N’ Roll isn’t supposed to exist in that building in Cleveland. Shame on me for even dreaming like that. Metal be thy name.
Credited as Grand Funk, Grand Funk Railroad released their seventh studio album We’re An American Band back in 1973, via Capitol Records.
* Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor was released on April 23rd, 2013.
