Dirty Honey To Kick Off NHL’s Winter Classic With Cover Of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy”

Dirty Honey have recorded a cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” for the kickoff of the 2022 National Hockey League Winter Classic, which is set take place on New Year’s Day (January 1). The performance, which was filmed on a frozen lake in Minnesota, will air as part of TNT’s event coverage.

Turner Sports’ Tyler Lassiter commented:

“I found out about Dirty Honey through former NHL player Scottie Upshall and have been a fan of the band ever since. I had read that Marc LaBelle was a big hockey guy, and as soon as we landed the NHL deal on TNT earlier this year, my first thought was that we would do something with these guys at some point. When we came up with this concept, all the stars seemed to align. We needed a band who could faithfully pull off a legit Prince cover as well as one passionate enough to agree to shoot on a frozen lake in northern Minnesota in mid-December. The boys crushed it.”

Dirty Honey’s cover of “Let’s Go Crazy” will also be available on all DSPs on January 1 as well. The NHL pre-game will begin at 6 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. CT / 3 p.m. PT.

Nonpoint Premiere New Video For Cover Of Prince’s “When Doves Cry”

Nonpoint have premiered a new video for their cover of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” You can check that out below:

Elias Soriano commented:

“Our fans throughout the years have always had a quiet romance with the songs we like to cover. Seeing that our biggest showing in that category, our cover of Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight,’ was a suggestion from a friend and fan of the band, we thought it only fitting we let all our fans have a chance to throw their hats in the ring this time.

So in the middle of a global pandemic, we threw up a bracket style voting tournament with a list of contenders from Metallica to DMX. As fans voted over a few weeks, it was exciting to watch it go from 16 songs to the final two, Metallica’s – ‘Nothing Else Matters‘ vs Prince’s – ‘When Doves Cry‘. When they chose Prince, the real work began.

We went through version after version. We knew we had to do it justice in the biggest way we could as tribute to Prince and still make it Nonpoint. I’m happy to report from initial response among the few who have heard it is exciting and we look forward to our fans singing it for years to come.”
