I have to say Filter has always been amazing at doing cover songs, from "One is the Loneliest Number" for The X-Files movie soundtrack, to a very dark version of "Happy Together" for The Stepfather soundtrack. This ZZ Top cover comes off just as creative! And I also think Richard Patrick's lower voice in the verse is super sexay. ;)

More in Filter news...a Texas promoter French Smith seems to have ripped off the band at BatFest. So I say karma time!
I also found out Filter is playing a headlining show at Recher Theatre in Maryland on October 16, the night before I'm seeing them open for Bush and Chevelle at Fillmore. I unfortunately cannot make it to this newly announced show because I'm already seeing Duran Duran that night. But I'm still seeing my two fave bands two nights in a row, so I can't complain TOO much.

And here's a recent remix they did of one of their own originals.
I just got the "Megalithic Symphony" CD by AWOLNATION. You might be familiar with their song on the radio, "Sail." No two songs on this album sound alike. I am an instant fan. I'm always impressed by eclectic music and they do NOT disappoint me.
Especially check out this song, "Knights of Shame." It's a 15-minute track that changes so many times it blew my mind. This live performance is even more amazing. Watch for the lead singer/guitarist swap with the drummer toward the end.
Also, check out and vote in the ShipRocked Battle of the Bands! One of these bands will get a chance to perform on the ShipRocked cruise in November! And let me throw in a little plug for Cage9 because a friend of mine knows them. ;)
