Video For Bad Wolves “Zombie” Released

Bad Wolves have released a video for the band’s cover of the Cranberries classic “Zombie,” which has been steadily climbing the rock airplay chart following the death of Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan last month. O’Riordan was supposed to enter a recording studio to lay down a guest vocal for the track on January 15th, the day she was found dead in a London hotel room.

The clip features Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext and an unreachable woman painted in gold — a tribute to O’Riordan’s own look in the original “Zombie” video — attempting and failing to touch each other. Vext said about covering the song, “Her lyrics, confronting the collateral damage of political unrest, capture the same sentiment we wanted to express a quarter-century later. That is a testament to the kind of enduring artist Dolores was, and will remain forever.”

  • Bad Wolves are donating all proceeds from sales of the track to O’Riordan’s three children.
  • O’Riordan’s publicist said in a statement that the Irish singer was “excited” about guesting on the track, adding, “Although very different in style to the original, Dolores said she thought that the cover was ‘killer’ and she was intrigued by the simple-but-effective couple of lyric changes that make the cover version as relevant to current world events as the original was to the events that inspired her to write the song in the early Nineties.”
  • Originally released in 1994 following the IRA bombing of Warrington, the Cranberries’ “Zombie” hit Number One around the world.
  • The Bad Wolves cover has garnered over three million combined streams across YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music and has just cracked the Top 20 at U.S. rock radio.
  • Bad Wolves will tour the U.S. later in the year with Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown.

Fergie VS The US National Anthem

One of my pet peeves: when celebrities get self-indulgent while performing a national anthem. Just sing it the way it was meant to be sung, take a bow and be done with it.

My Other “Job”

Today marks one year for me here on the Rock 107 airwaves!! As you might be aware, when I’m not doing what I do here, you can often find me on the live stage performing mentalism or my comedy hypnosis show. Here’s a quick sampling from my time last month at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas while filling in for my pal, Marc Savard!
