Did you know that Sevendust covered Twisted Sister years ago? I received an email yesterday about people talking about the cover on a message board. I had no idea about this cover but I'm VERY excited. I love Sevendust in a big, bad way. Actually, they are one of my favorite bands. So color me surprised to learn that Sevendust did a most awesome cover of "I Am (I'm Me)." This song is from the tribute album Twisted Forever.
I don't have this album and that's why I had no idea Sevendust had covered a glam band (but of course it makes sense because Twisted guitarist Jay Jay French was managing Sevendust at the time of this recording). Now, you need to note: the song is in Twisted Sister style and doesn't really sound like Sevendust. It's almost punk -- very interesting to hear Lajon Witherspoon in this way. Check it out:
I've always liked "I Am (I'm Me)" because of the song's message. Other bands on the Twisted Forever tribute are Overkill, Nashville Pussy, Fu Manchu and Motorhead.
