War Of The Covers Rebel YellWe didn’t have a War Of The Covers last week and we apologize for that as we kind of took a Vacation last week. Nevertheless, we have the results of the previous one with Fallen Man easily defeating Fozzy in who covered L.O.V.E. Machine by W.A.S.P. better. Well this week we have an interesting battle for all of you out there as we have a fatal four way match to decide who covered Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell better. In 2007, Nu Metal act Drowning Pool released a cover of the track for their first record with Ryan McCombs of Soil entitled Full Circle. In 2009, Children Of Bodom released a cover of the track for an all covers album called Skeletons In The Closet. Also in 2009, Hard Rock/Metal act Dope would release a cover of the song on their fifth album No Regrets. In 2011, rock act Black Veil Brides released an their Rebels EP which featured a cover of the track as well as a cover of a Kiss song. Now only one version can reign supreme here and it’s up to you guys to decide who recorded the best version. All four tracks are worthy, but only one will make it out alive. You have until the next War Of The Covers post to decide.

war of the covers love machineI have always had the motto that if at first you don’t succeed then you try and try again which is definitely the case this week. Before we get into this week’s War Of The Covers, we are here to inform you that Vader won last week’s challenge by gaining 78% of the votes making their version of Slayer’s Silent Scream the king. This week we have an interesting battle for all of you out there as we attempt something we have never done before. This week we have an unsigned/independent band taking on a nationally signed act in this week’s War Of The Covers. For this week’s battle, we are looking at legendary LA metal act W.A.S.P. whose seminal hit from their self titled 1984 debut L.O.V.E. Machine which is the subject of our battle this week. In 2002, metal act Fozzy which features WWE wrestler Chris Jericho released a cover of the song for their second studio album Happenstance. In 2007, legendary Unsigned/Independent act Fallen Man released their 3RD full length album Reborn which featured a cover of the track. Now only one of these versions can reign supreme and it’s totally up to you guys to decide so choose wisely and just have fun doing it.
