Lamb Of God unleash Bad Brains cover featuring FEVER 333’s Jason Aalon Butler

Lamb Of God and FEVER 333’s Jason Aalon Butler have teamed up for a live quarantine cover of Bad Brains’ I Against I.

Two absolutely awesome bands have joined forces to cover another awesome band: Lamb Of God and FEVER 333s Jason Aalon Butler have just unleashed a live quarantine performance of Bad Brains’ I Against I.

The idea to cover I Against I goes back at least 20 years to a camping trip the band was on,” explains LoG’s Randy Blythe. Mark [Morton, guitar] and I were sitting in the back of our buddy’s Jeep ripping through the mountains, Bad Brains was cranking on the stereo, and I was singing along to that particular song. Mark looked over at me and said, We should cover that tune.’ So we thought about it for a couple of decades and finally got around to doing it for the Burn The Priest Legion: XX record – hey, sometimes we move a little slow…

As we all know, this pandemic has sucked for live music, but the quarantine jams bands have been doing have been pretty fun, especially when you bring in guests,” the frontman continues. I saw FEVER 333 for the first time at the Sonic Temple fest – I had never listened to them, but I was blown away by their live show. I remember thinking, Man, these dudes are wild; their energy reminds me of the punk shows I saw in the 80s and I’ve been friends with those dudes from that day. I even texted Darryl from Bad Brains that afternoon to tell him to check them out. It was only natural to ask Jason to join us and bring that energy to this song by the almighty Bad Brains, my favourite band of all time.”

Jason adds: It is truly an honour to be a part of this one as I have the utmost respect for Randy and the boys since becoming homies after having my mind blown when I looked over at the side of the stage at Sonic Temple Fest and saw him watching us play. It’s been a pleasure getting to know him and an honour to rock LoG celebrating one of the most important punk rock/musical acts of all time, Bad Brains. From legends to legends to the student. All love.”
