This one emerged in 2018, both on the rapper's studio album Beautiful Disaster and a mixtape called The Unforgiven, Vol. On the band's (seemingly abandoned) Facebook page, they describe their sound as one that "mixes rock, ska and reggae." Whatever the case, this has to be one of the most fun Limp Bizkit covers out there. But who knew there were renditions of the song performed in so many different styles?Classical, lounge, country, parody, metalcore — these are just a few of the disparate genres through which a range of performers have put their stamp on the single from the Fred Durst-led rap-rockers' third studio album, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.The best ones many Limp Bizkit fans have likely heard before: There's the country-western version from Robyn Adele Anderson that went viral last year, a piano and vocal take by The Lounge Kittens. It emerged in 2007 on a compilation in Japan called Punk Rock Show 3 – Best Hits of the '90s (Punk Rock Show 3 ベストヒット'90s).Fa Caudwell (“Corona”)YouTuber Fa Caudwell gets points for creativity. What's great about this cover is just how purely energetic it comes across. The group's trademark is taking popular songs and redoing them, grindcore-style; here, "Rollin'" becomes "Grindin'," complete with a change of lyrics. So it makes sense that, 20-odd years on, there'd be several "Rollin'" cover versions rolling around the internet. Rock fan and drummer Marcel Desobeau runs the social media account @officialheavymetalbaby, where he shares videos of him and his drum stick-wielding baby daughter rocking out to music. But the cover of "Rollin'" from the German "fun metal" band Excrementory Grindfuckers is probably only entertaining as a pure novelty. He's made his cover of "Rollin'" (plus many others) available on major music streaming services such as Amazon Music and Apple Music.Excrementory Grindfuckers (“Grindin'”)Now we start hitting the bottom of the barrel — although, to be clear, there's nothing inferior about the genre of grindcore itself. (Heck, Loudwire just recently talked up VSQ's rendition of Disturbed's "Down With the Sickness.") As is their wont, the loose Los Angeles orchestral collective released an entire album of string-based takes on Limp Bizkit songs with 2006's Break Stuff: The String Quartet Tribute to Limp Bizkit, which contains their version of "Rollin'." They've given the same album-length tribute treatment to Radiohead, R.E.M., Pearl Jam, The Strokes, et al. — the list goes on and on.The Lounge KittensThe Lounge Kittens have since split up, but the English comedy lounge trio's cover of "Rollin'" lives on. And we're sure there plenty more out there like that.Either way, you know what time it is. Then, of course, there are covers in the rock vein that still manage to add some oomph to the original, such as a blistering version by the Japanese metal act Crystal Lake.But what about the not-so-good ones? And making it so powerful couldn't have been an easy feat — Limp Bizkit's original "Rollin'" isn't exactly what one would consider a subdued number.Robyn Adele Anderson feat. Why did rapper The Raskal release a "Rollin'" cover that sounds like him simply performing to a substandard karaoke track of the song? Once it started amassing views, they covered other rock tracks such as Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and Slipknot's "Duality" before calling it quits last year.John Asis + FriendHear us out — this cover practically has as much punch and originality as any of the others listed here. And, really, that's all it is. 1, each released by The Raskal's longtime label, RuffLife Recordz. Perhaps it pushes the song in a more gangsta rap direction, but even highlighting that faint aspect is probably giving this cover more credit than it deserves.BONUS: A Baby Durst Rocks Out to Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin'”This isn't our least favorite cover, or even a cover of "Rollin'" at all — but we had to include it because it's just too cute. Philip TrappPublished: May 6, 2021YouTube: Robyn Adele Anderson / LimpBizkitVEVO / JMSTV1Share on FacebookShare on TwitterLimp Bizkit's "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)" made quite a splash when it first emerged in the fall of 2000. Yet, it comes off as just two friends having a good time with the tune without any other expectations.

Filed Under: Limp BizkitCategories: News Meanwhile, the guitars change some of the riffs' rhythms to perplexing effect, and the telltale grindcore blast beat doesn't even hit until the song's almost over.The RaskalComing in last is a cover of "Rollin'" by Arizona-based hip-hop artist The Raskal. The Kittens — vocalists Jenny Deacon (who was also the act's pianist), Timia Gwendoline and Zan Lawther — first released their "Rollin'" cover on YouTube in 2014. But other amateur YouTube versions of the song just don't have the same gusto as this "acoustic rap metal" take from guitarist John Asis and a vocalist friend. Sarah Krauss + Julianne DalyAh, yes — the country cover of "Rollin'." It first popped up on many listeners' radar in 2020 thanks to a vibrant performance from singer Robyn Adele Anderson, supporting vocalists Sarah Krauss and Julianne Daly, and a white-hot bluegrass band. Shortly after the coronavirus pandemic hit American shores in earnest in March 2020, the musician released his version of "Rollin'" redone as "Corona" — its spoof lyrics cover fundamental COVID advice about washing hands and avoiding crowds. "Hey friends, I thought it would be a giggle to make a corona-themed parody of Limp Bizkit's 'Rollin'," Caudwell told his Facebook followers last year. One that undoubtedly hasn't gotten the attention it merits is a ska version by a Japanese outfit called Sunset Bus. Below, check out the diverse selection of Limp Bizkit "Rollin'" covers, graded from best ("phat") to worst ("hot dog flavored").Crystal LakeFor rock and metal listeners, the most recognizable cover of "Rollin'" that's widely available has to be the version from Japanese metalcore mainstays Crystal Lake. While many we've included are decidedly the most polished, professionally released covers, a couple were produced by individuals as mere YouTube larks or attempts at a viral moment. Asis applies his percussive acoustic style to other rock and metal tunes on his YouTube channel, including Paramore's "Misery Business" and Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name."Shaggy-liciousIt's true, there's an indie artist who calls himself Shaggy-licious that performs cover songs solely in the style of reggae-pop singer Shaggy, the performer best known to listeners for hits such as "It Wasn't Me" and "Boombastic." In 2012, Shaggy-licious dropped a Shaggy-style take on "Rollin.'" This all might seem like it's a joke, but it's not — Shaggy-licious seems to take his craft pretty seriously. While the almost straight take on the Bizkit jam is perfectly serviceable, it also adds nothing to the original. Why is there a grindcore version of the tune that rewrites the lyrics to turn "Rollin'" into "Grindin'"?Listeners may never truly know, but here at Loudwire, we decided to rank the various Limp Bizkit "Rollin" covers available online. At the time, Loudwire remarked that the version gives listeners the chance to "hear Limp Bizkit as if they were down on the farm in a John Deere tractor instead of cruising the highway in an 'Air Raid Vehicle.'" That estimation holds up.Sunset BusHere's where we start getting into some lesser-known covers of Limp Bizkit's "Rollin'," including a few that took some digging to uncover. And the subsequent response to the piano-and-vocal version clearly made an impact on the outfit. "Enjoy, and please remember to stay indoors."Vitamin String QuartetAnytime there's a list of the best outside-the-box rock covers, the Vitamin String Quartet has got to be included. The amped-up reading arrived in August 2014 with a simple but effective music video, and it appeared on the band's Cubes EP that same month.

She's gonna be floored. So unapologetically badass."Willow recalls being her mom's biggest fan during those rock star days, always wanting to watch her perform. She managed to reunite Jada's onetime metal band Wicked Wisdom for a special performance on their Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk, complete with Willow fronting the band on a performance of "Bleed All Over Me."Though Pinkett Smith is best known for her acting career which includes the TV series A Different World, Hawthorne and Gotham as well as the films The Nutty Professor, The Matrix Reloaded, Collateral, Bad Moms and Girls Trip, she also fronted the metal outfit Wicked Wisdom, forming the group in 2002. She was a warrior and a nurturer all in one. This is the music that I grew up around. I'm really excited about it.” After a little conversation, the performance of Willow fronting Wicked Wisdom while sporting a Mastodon shirt on "Bleed All Over Me" can be seen at 32:45 in the video below.You can check out the full episode of Red Table Talk, dedicated to mothers, on Facebook Watch or in the player below.Willow Reunites Wicked Wisdom on Red Table TalkEvery Ozzfest Lineup, Ranked

Everything comes from the blues. To Self-Destruct. It's gonna be a special moment, 'cause I've always wanted to make a blues record," he continued.Now, if you're reading this, Metal God, please take our advice here and make sure that phone is backed up. Or just make sure those files are saved somewhere else in general. Rock 'n' roll — it all starts with the blues. and it's all saved to his phone.The album, which will harken back to the era that pre-dated and influenced early rock 'n' roll and eventually heavy metal, hasn't been completely finished yet, but Halford is feeling confident about its eventual release, which will have to come at an optimal time as Judas Priest's tour and followup to 2018's Firepower remain priorities."I love the blues. He's now confirmed there's enough material written for a full record… You don't want to wind up like Kirk Hammett, who lost his phone full of riff ideas before Metallica released Hardwired… And what a great style of music that is," Halford said of the genre in a recent interview with Kyle Meredith (transcription via Blabbermouth)."I've been working on — well, I say I, my brother, Nigel, and my nephew Alex, Ian Hill's son, on bass, and our friend [Jon] Blakey on guitar, those guys have been putting together the foundations for quite a while now," he went on and noted, "We have enough material to make a record. I've just got to find the words and put the voice on it at some point."While Halford's voice will certainly be a defining characteristic, he didn't want to be too heavy-handed on influencing the direction of the music."The only thing that I threw at the guys was, 'Do what you feel you want to do in terms of ideas.' I did give 'em a list of some of my favorite blues styles and blues performers as a little bit of a template for the guys to bounce off of.""It's all in [my] phone — I've got the album in this phone — and it's great. Since he didn't have his phone backed up, he lost all those precious recordings.Halford stressed his debut blues record would arrive "when time allows," citing Judas Priest's 50th anniversary tour (which had been postponed due to the pandemic) as well as new Priest music as the two things that must come first.Perhaps this blues album will feature the "duet" with Behemoth's Nergal that Halford had teased in the fall of last year.

Still, the singer-songwriter and all-around Renaissance man of rock and metal isn't necessarily known for being a prolific multi-instrumentalist.

Filed Under: corey taylorCategories: News As shown in footage shared that day by a YouTuber named Karen Clay, the Slipknot vocalist played the accordion for a short time while speaking with a group of attendees about it. That's why watching Taylor tackle the accordion, as he did during a recent fan encounter, seems like such a spectacle.Sure, the Slipknot vocalist supplies rhythm guitar in his solo work and on Stone Sour songs. So it makes sense that Taylor's brief brush with the accordion happened at a horror convention.Watch a video down toward the bottom of this post.Taylor's dalliance with the accordion took place at the Spooky Empire convention's opening 2021 weekend in Orlando, Fla., on April 30. Philip TrappPublished: May 3, 2021YouTube: Kaylen ClayShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSlipknot and Stone Sour fans are well aware of the talent that Corey Taylor possesses. But Taylor brandishing an instrument more closely aligned with "Weird Al" Yankovic, classical music or, gasp, polka? Spooky Empire is a horror and sci-fi con that bills itself as "the dark side of Comic-Con." In 2019, Taylor, an avowed horror buff, released a documentary about 1980s horror films called In Search of Darkness. He's also contributing to an upcoming doc about '80s sci-fi, In Search of Tomorrow.But last Friday, Taylor's mind was on the fans he was meeting (while donning a black bandana as a face covering) during the convention. That sounds like it could elicit nightmare fuel.

It wasn't like bringing in a stranger.As far as me gaining the confidence to jump up front and have a new kind of role onstage, people such a Dave Grohl are definitely a huge influence. We all were super proud of what we did so we just kept on trucking. That's why Atreyu albums have always come out being so eclectic and cover multiple genres. Writing music and having an outlet creatively is something that just makes me feel better inside. How did those unknowns actually exhilarate you while making Baptize?We're definitely a group of dudes who thrive in the face of the challenge.

Whatever we're feeling that day, it's very clear and honest — creative time capsules every time we write a song.Someone transitioning from one role to another can sometimes be disconcerting for their audience. We had already started writing and recording Baptize in January and it pushed us to go ahead and have an even more creative outlook to finish the album.Atreyu, "Warrior" Music VideoAlex was actually involved in writing some of the music on Baptize. Full Metal JackiePublished: May 3, 2021Spinefarm RecordsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterAtreyu's Brandon Saller was the guest on Full Metal Jackie's weekend radio show, on hand to discuss the band's latest album Baptize. I do music for TV/Film, I write as an artist, so it's kind of one of those things where like that part of me just needs to continue to exist at as high of a capacity as I can. We wrote a handful of songs on our own and adapted everything that we'd done before, essentially with putting my voice and Porter’s voice on everything.Spinefarm RecordsBaptize is one of the heavier Atreyu albums. How do you feel? We've always been that 'uphill battle' sort of band — nothing's ever really been handed to us.We saw it as more of an opportunity rather than a challenge. It makes me feel better inside, ya know?Thanks to Brandon Saller for the interview. Why was it important that his efforts be part of the finished album?We had started the album and we wrote probably 12 songs, musically and vocally as well. So, that's what I intend on being.I intend on just going onstage and being myself and if anyone's seen my other band Hell or High Water perform or if anyone has seen video of Atreyu in 2019 in Europe (we actually had to go to Europe with this exact lineup currently and I was up front)… He had a hand in writing a lot of the lyrics on the first batch of songs too, so we loved the songs and we loved what we had all accomplished.We didn't want to just shelve the songs because he wasn't in the band anymore. I'm in Atreyu, I'm also have this other band. Check out the chat in full below.Between the pandemic and Alex Varkatzas leaving the band, uncertainty characterized last year for Atreyu.

So far people have been very, very kind and kind of welcoming to the new stage setup.Atreyu, "Save Us" Music VideoBrandon, you're a multi-instrumentalist with multiple creative outlets. So, I think that's why I write so much music. In what ways have other people doing the same thing, such as Dave Grohl for example, encouraged you?A big part about me taking the lead role over as far as vocals in the band was because it wasn't going to be as jarring and as much of a shock to our audience because they're already used to my voice. And during the chat Saller spoke about the opportunity that provided for the group.The drummer, who has now moved to the front of the stage in the band's current configuration, also spoke on making that live transition and pulling strength from seeing someone like Dave Grohl do the same thing. people have kind of seen a little taste of it.We did our livestream events too and people saw a taste of it. The record, while it does contain material written with former co-vocalist Alex Varkatzas, is their first not to feature his vocals. When you're writing and recording, what subconsciously dictates the style and tone of the music you're making?We've always been a band that doesn't focus on much more than the current feeling and current thought, especially with the way we make records with our producer John Feldmann.It's very much like, 'What are you feeling today? I feel like there's never a shortage of things to write about in this day in age and I feel like whether for me, if I'm sad it doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to write a sad song. How does excessive creativity help you cope with turmoil and disruption that sometimes occurs in life?I feel like, honestly, it's my main coping mechanism.
