The band continues to impress us with their take on ‘Blue on Black’. The cover of the song which was originally released on the album ,Justice, was re-released in April with special guests including Kenny Shepherd from the original song, country music singer Brantley Gilbert and Queen’s Brian May. Proceeds from the new rendition will be going to benefit The Gary Sinise Foundation. The foundation creates unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities for the country’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.
This is the very first time in the 38-year history of the Mainstream Rock Songs chart that a cover of a song that originally reached No.1 ruled the list again. Five Finger Death Punch nearly claimed that title last year with their remake of The Offspring’s ‘Gone Away’.
Take a listen to the stellar rendition of ‘Blue on Black’ below.
