Sky Eats Airplane Covers Limp Bizkit but Not to Sell Out
Equal Vision band Sky Eats Airplane is currently on "The Nu-Metal Tour" and have recorded a cover of Limp Bizkit's "Nookie." This is apparently causing a great stir in the electronic metalcore fan base, so Sky Eats Airplane wants all to know the reasons for covering such a song.
"A lot of you are very confused why: 1.) we covered a Limp Bizkit song, and 2.) let alone made it pretty close to the original.
The reason why we picked Nookie by Limp Bizkit, is because we sincerely think that song rules and we have been listening to quite a bit of Korn and Limp Bizkit in our van for the past few months. There. The secrets out. We are dwelling on music we listened to when we were 12 (for Travis, when he was 17 or something probably). It is NOT because our record label or manager told us that we should cover some popular song so we can blow up off of it. You will not see this song on some compilation cd in an attempt to gain new fans (When Punk Goes Pop, etc.). Another reason we covered nookie is that we consider it one of the flagship nu metal songs (hence it fits the tour theme). We have absolutely no intentions of playing this song after the "New Nu Metal" tour. We aren't going to be one of those bands--who i am NOT naming--that are riding on another music group's success because they threw some breakdown chugs over a poppy part someone else made."
