Published Nov 16, 2015Who said hard-rockin' nü metal bands can't enjoy a bit of a punk phase? Tell that to Slipknot's own Corey Taylor, who's used his Stone Sour side-project to start a circle pit with a cover of Bad Brains' "Sailin' On."
Depending on your tastes, this will either be a fun audio curiosity or the death knell of '80s hardcore revivalism. Whatever the case, this cover exists in all of its slick, well-produced glory. Sing along and keep sailin' on, friends.
Listen to Stone Sour's cover of "Sailin' On" below (which was premiered by those lucky ducks at Alternative Press). Then be sure to add it to your vinyl collection when it's released as part of Stone Sour's 10-inch covers release Straight Outta Burbank.
The release is a Record Store Day Black Friday exclusive and also includes covers of Iron Maiden, the Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe and Slayer. In other words, it's the sort of thing that no real record collector can live without.
