Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello Teams Up With Bruce Springsteen & Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder For Cover Of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell”

Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello has released a new cover of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell.” The track, which features Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, will appear on Morello’s new album, “The Atlas Underground Fire,” which is set to be released on October 15.

Morello said the following about the cover:

“Our version of ‘Highway To Hell’ pays homage to AC/DC but with Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, bringing this legendary song into the future. One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time sung by two of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll singers of all time. And then I drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”

He also added the following about the new album:

“During lockdown I had no access to an engineer so I had to record all of the guitar parts on the voice memo of my phone. This seemed like an outrageous idea but it lead to a freedom in creativity in that I could not overthink any of the guitar parts and just had to trust my instincts.

This record was a life raft in a difficult time that allowed me to find new ways of creating new global artistic connections that helped transform a time of fear and anxiety into one of musical expression and rocking jams.”

Black Veil Brides Cover Bruce Springsteen’s “American Skin (41 Shots)”

Black Veil Brides have released a cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “American Skin (41 Shots).“ You can stream that over at bvbamericanskin.com. For those unaware, Springsteen wrote the original song in response to the police killing of Amadou Diallo.

Black Veil Brides commented:

“American Skin (41 Shots) is a song originally written and performed by Bruce Springsteen inspired by the police shooting and death of a young black man named Amadou Diallo in New York City in the late 90’s.

Tragically the subject matter of this song is as relevant today as it’s ever been and so we wanted to share with you our own rendition of this song and urge you to donate to support the movement for justice and anti racist organizations.

While obviously a song alone will not be an inflection point for societal change, we as artists wanted to share something in support of this incredibly important time in history and direct you to organizations who are at the forefront of effecting real change and fighting against the systemic oppression and racism that the black community and poc face every single day.

We are not interested in making any money from this song and instead we ask that if you enjoy it please consider donating to one of the many organizations that can be found here:

Donate to the movement for justice and support anti-racist organizations

Thank you for listening. #blacklivesmatter”
