Lamb Of God and Dave Mustaine premiere cover of Megadeth's 'Wake Up Dead'
Megadeth 1986 track gets a 2022 update from Lamb Of God and Dave Mustaine.
One week before the two bands kick off "The Metal Tour of the Year," Lamb Of God and Megadeth have teamed up to create a new version of the latter's track, "Wake Up Dead." Originally released in 1986, the song served as the lead single of Megadeth's multi-platinum selling album, Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying?
Available for streaming below, Lamb Of God's "Wake Up Dead" cover features Dave Mustaine and the members of Megadeth. Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell and drummer Art Cruz recorded the Megadeth classic remotely and recruited the Megadeth frontman himself to feature guitar and vocals on the song.
Mustaine lent his vocals to the track, with lead guitar work on the various solos by Lamb Of God's own Mark Morton, as well as Megadeth's Mustaine and Kiko Loureiro. The recording also includes vocal contributions from Megadeth members Kiko Loureiro, Dirk Verbeuren and James LoMenzo.
"We had a blast playing with Lamb of God on their cover of 'Wake Up Dead'," says Mustaine. "Almost as much fun as we're going to have playing every night on Metal Tour Of The Year. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!"
"The first leg of The Metal Tour of the Year back in 2021 was a total blast, and we're about to take it on the road again," adds Blythe. "What better way to kick it off than a little inter-band jam session? All nine members of Megadeth and Lamb of God are on the thrash classic 'Wake Up Dead'- turn it up, and we'll see you on the road!"

Sounds unnecessary. How about a song off the new Megadeth album?
"can't trust a pervert or a murderer" ^^^^^ Murderer here. C'mon, bro. Cut us some slack.
anonymous 2 hours ago can't trust a pervert or a murderer <===P0t C@lling t43 k3ttl3 Bl@CK.
Mustaine's voice still sounds like nails on a chalkboard, Lamb of God haven't been good in nearly 15 years.
How can you cover your own song? Only if you're an ultra-conservative conspiracy theorist f*ckmop.
Oh cool!! The biggest poser ever, Randy Blythe, doing some poser shit. Get bent, helmet.
