“THE WINNER LOSES” (rare) ICE-T and BODY COUNT
This song lets lead guitarist, Eddie Martinez, shine but this is basically one of the few BALLADS by Body Count. The song’s theme to a user: drugs will get you one way or another, you can’t hide from it. Inspired by Fugazi, Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Ice-T loved the hardcore L.A. punk scene and used this side project to get out some inner demons. “Cop Killer” got the press but many intense classics like “There Goes The Neighborhood” and their title track made a mark on music history. This is a rare video, I was surprised to find it online!
I saw Godsmack in concert when they opened for Metallica. They definitely had the Zeppelin mixed with Alice In Chains sound complete with heavy riffs, layered drum solos, and a commanding vocalist but I wasn’t blown away by them that night. “Cry Like A Bitch” has a great UFC themed video to go with that awesome manly title. This song comes from their 2010 CD, Saints & Sinners.
