Yes, it’s a cover. Of course it’s a cover. And I’ve also written about Clutch before. But it’s a great song, the original and most covers. Bt this song has been on my mind lately, particularly with our particular current events and one political candidate using the song but having never actually listened to the lyrics.
There was a time during the 80’s when I was a 60’s rock fan, but that faded over time after I discovered metal. On top of being subjected to it by hippie parents, man, just burnt out. But sometime in the mid 90’s I found Clutch, even own their first album, although I haven’t kept up with their discography, I like Fallon’s voice and how the band has grown into this kind of bluesy rock thing.
