Powderburn recorded a combined cover of "Rebel Yell" and "White Wedding" by Billy Idol

Did you know that the Powderburn EP "Come and Take It" contains the first official cover song that the band has ever recorded? It's called "White Wedding" and the song combines two famous Billy Idol songs and smashes them into one. It's been a fan favorite at shows for the past few years and now it's yours to listen to at home!

It's available on itunes as well as here:

Over the years the band has occasionally tossed a cover song or two into their sets, not limited to:

Deftones - Engine #9
Will Smith - Fresh Prince of Bel Air
ZZ Top - Under Pressure
Rob Zombie - Super Charger Heaven
Metallica - Seek and Destroy
CCR - Fortunate Son
Charlie Daniels Band - Devil Went Down to Georgia
Pantera - This Love, Cowboys from Hell, Strength Beyond Strength
Helmet - Unsung
Misfits - Dig Up Her Bones
Anthrax/Joe Jackson - Got the Time

However this marks the first time a song was recorded in the studio and officially released. If you like, download it, spread the link on facebook and perhaps the band will record more cover songs in the future...hell that list above makes a pretty cool album actually.
