Hard Rock cover tunes have been a staple since the 1970′s. Just about every Hard Rock Band from Anthrax to Van Halen have recorded cover tunes on one (or more) of their discs. In the case of Motley Crue, and Quiet Riot, hits have been scored from cover songs.
Sometime in the 90′s it became common place for hard rock tribute albums to sprout up, and the in the late 90′s the trend of hard rock cover albums began. Love them or hate them, this is a trend that will likely continue.
This week at the Hard Rock Hideout, I will be reviewing covers discs as well as posting some other subjects on the topic. Later in the week, I will post reviews for the covers discs by Poison and Tesla.
Stop back each day for the latest reviews and news!
