Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe And Fever 333's Jason Aalon Butler

Lamb Of God & Fever 333’s Jason Aalon Butler Cover Bad Brains’ “I Against I”


Lamb Of God have been joined by Fever 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler for their newest quarantined session. Together they have laid down the below rendition of Bad Brains‘ “I Against I“. Blythe himself has previously fronted Bad Brains on several occasions, while Lamb Of God covered this very track under their previous moniker of Burn The Priest on their 2018 covers album “Legion: XX“.

Blythe himself became a fan of Fever 333 after sharing the stage with them back in 2019. Speaking of this cover and pairing up with Butler, Blythe stated:

“The idea to cover ‘I Against I‘ goes back at least 20 years to a camping trip the band was on. Mark & I were sitting in the back of our buddy’s Jeep ripping through the mountains, Bad Brains was cranking on the stereo, & I was singing along to that particular song. Mark looked over at me & said ‘We should cover that tune’ So we thought about it for a couple of decades and finally got around to doing it for the ‘Burn The Priest Legion: XX‘ record (hey, sometimes we move a little slow…)

As we all know, this pandemic has sucked for live music, but the quarantine jams bands have been doing have been pretty fun, especially when you bring in guests. I saw Fever 333 for the first time at the Sonic Temple fest— I had never listened to them, but I was blown away by their live show. I remember thinking ‘Man, these dudes are WILD- their energy reminds me of the punk shows I saw in the 80’s’ and I’ve been friends with those dudes from that day. I even texted Darryl from Bad Brains that afternoon to tell him to check them out. It was only natural to ask Jason to join us & bring that energy to this song by the almighty Bad Brains, my favorite band of all time.”

Butler added:

“It is truly an honor to be a part of this one as I have the utmost respect for Randy and the boys since becoming homies after having my mind blown when I looked over at the side of the stage at Sonic Temple Fest and saw him watching us play. It’s been a pleasure getting to know him and an honor to rock L.O.G. celebrating one of the most important punk rock/musical acts of all time Bad Brains. From legends to legends to the student. All love.”
