Lockjaw Release Video For Their Cover Of Alice In Chains’ “Them Bones”


Texan metal band Lockjaw have released a video for their studio cover of Alice In Chains‘ platinum-certified 1992 hit single “Them Bones“. Lockjaw guitarist Jeff Ogle commented of the influence the grunge legends have held over him and what led to this cover:

Alice In Chains was always one of my favorite bands, especially from the Pacific Northwest. That scene was so huge in the 90s, and so many great bands came from there. When I was about 13, I got my first CD player in my room, and my grandad took me to the pawn shop one day and my very first CD was ‘Jar of Flies’. I wore that thing out. Every song was just amazing to me.”

“I think the reason I pushed so hard with the guys to do AIC as our first cover, and ‘Them Bones‘ in particular, was it was just the heaviest grungy song ever. When we recorded ‘Relentless‘, we found we were doing a ton of back up harmony vocals, and as it was happening in the studio, I just kept thinking of Layne and Jerry.

So I wanted to tap into that vibe or spirit when we were recording. Needless to say, ‘Relentless‘ ended up being something we are all very proud of, and now we wanted to pay tribute to one of the bands that was very inspirational to us.”
