Motionless In White just released a cover of Rob Zombie's "Dragula" on their MySpace player just in time for Halloween. The band posted the following update about it:

"We are so excited for this Halloween weekend, is everyone ready for it?. Along with the costume's, the parties and the candy, we've added to the celebration and recorded a cover song for you all. We decided to cover Rob Zombie's song, "Dragula" and it's now up on our Myspace page.

"We chose to do Rob Zombie's Dragula because we really wanted to do a cover song as sort of a Halloween surprise for our fans and give everyone something new to listen to while we are finishing up our new record. We didn't want to cover a rap or pop song but rather really wanted to embrace the fact that we are different and do something that would be a challenge and shock people as well as having it be something that fit our style and our image perfectly. Rob Zombie in our eyes is a hero and one of the front runners of shock rock and we definitely idolize him as an artist and musician. We feel that Dragula is one of the most Badass songs that was ever written in that genre and are honored to have been able to incorporate our own "Motionless In White style" to it. We really hope everyone loves it and thank you so so much to all of our amazing fans who have been keeping us going! Happy Halloween!"

Ehhh..... The band is terrible... the cover.. not TOO bad i guess... the whole hardcore breakdown is an interesting twist... but I think it could've been done WAY better if it were a different band.

I don't think it was too bad at all. I like the keys in it. Made it sounds pretty sweet. The breakdown was weird to hear with that song. but they made it work IMO. anyway to download it?
