Daughtry and Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon have honored Chris Cornell with a new cover of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.”
Daughtry frontman Chis Daughtry said, “Chris Cornell is one of the defining voices that grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me want to be a rock singer. ‘Hunger Strike’ is one of, if not the most iconic rock duets of our generation. It’s the whole ’90s wrapped up in one song. Doing this song with Lajon, one of my favorite humans I’ve had the pleasure of calling friend and brother, means the world to me.”
Lajon added, “What an honor to be a part of this incredible song and to work with my brother Chris Daughtry and the boys. This to me was a musical movement in our community and still to this day in the world.”
Toni-Oni Savage commented on YouTube, “Chris sounds superb (as always) alongside Witherspoon!! This song has great rhythm and the duet between the two men are phenomenal!! Keep it up Daughtry!! 👍🏻🔥”
Romanos Araviad added, “At last… Some distortion… Like rain after an I-don’t-know-how-many-years drought. Distantly like his Absent element sound. I seriously thanked God and I’m one of the least religious people out here..
And oh man, what is Chris doing vocally, espec. towards the end! Man, oh, man, didn’t think I would ever feel so relieved to hear a new song..
Welcome back and never leave again, guys… This is your sound, the end.
Long live rock ‘n’ roll.. On repeat now. See you soon guys, ciao.. ; )”
