"Hey You"

It's one of my favorite songs of all time and I almost didn't listen to it at first because it's one of those that you just don't touch.

But I'm glad I did and I think you will be too. I have to pick my jaw up off the floor every time I watch it now.

Enjoy!

Awesome cover! I love the way they made it their own. Super sinister sound with heavier metal sound. Really great!!!

I'm checking out their other tunes.

Holy smokes! They nailed it.. What small differences I picked up only seemed to compliment the song in my opinion. The only thing that I'd say that made the original better was watching it along with the movie.

Glad you liked it. I'm sure you've listened to their cover of Sound of Silence by now... and was blown away again like me lol.

Here's one of their older ones that got me listening to them...

So good I listened to it twice! I'm a pretty big Pink Floyd fan too. When I was in college I listened to every Pink Floyd tape on my Sony Walkman for hours and hours until it literally broke.

I'm going to have to agree with you there, but only because the first time I ever did what you're supposed to do when you watch that movie, was when I watched that movie.

Huge Floyd fan here...I'm usually not impressed by strict covers of their material. I don't even like hearing Waters sing Gilmour's lines or vice versa. But this was a very well executed cover. You could tell that these guys love the material, and wanted to stay true to the mysterious vibe and ethereal tone of the song. Very well done, much respect to these guys.

!! At first glance, I thought the drummer was Chris Slade. Not near old enough, but, like I said...first glance.

More on topic....These guys are good. Gonna have to check out more of their work.

You will regret that. Their only good songs are ones that aren't theirs.


I'm not a fan. Been seeing these guys since early 2000's when they were still a local rapcoreish band out of West Virginia. They used to play a lot at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, OH. It's the same venue that Dimebag Darrel was shot and killed in(RIP Dimebag).

Bobaflex =

Yes, very true. lol

This is the Bobaflex I grew up with:



They have come a long way though so kudos to them for that.
