I’ve always loved a good cover song. For instance, Metallica’s cover of Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page”, Motley Crue’s cover of “Smokin’ in the Boys Room”, Clint Black’s version of “Desperado”, Manfred Mann’s version of Bruce Springsteen’s “Blinded By the Light”… the list goes on and on. I love hearing “re-imagined” songs!
To be fair, I was kind of like, “Er, really??” when I saw that there was a metal cover floating around, but I gave it a few listens, and you know what? It ain’t half-bad.
I’m a big Garth fan, and obviously, noone can touch him, as far as I’m concerned. But this version is pretty cool, and I thought I’d share it with you. The song lends itself well to a rock version. And it’s definitely getting some attention to State of Mine, so props to them!
