Die Metalband SEVENDUST hat den SOUNDGARDEN-Klassiker "The Day I Tried To Live" gecovert. Seit dem 2018er Release "All I See Is War" (Rise Records) ist der Track das erste musikalische Lebenszeichen der Band. Der Song wurde zudem mit einem Lyric Video ausgestattet und ist über die gängigen Kanäle streambar. Im Statement heisst es:

“Soundgarden is such an important band to all of us in Sevendust and this love for them goes all the way back to when we were starting,” erklärt Sänger Lajon Witherspoon. “We discussed trying to do one of their songs and our producer Elvis suggested ‘The Day I Tried To Live.’ I would have been fine with any of those songs personally. When I first heard it, I thought the lyrics were timeless. The lyrics are about trying to experience new things and change the way you live, and we see examples of that every day with what is happening around the world. To have the chance to cover this song and release it is so special to all of us. Thank you, Chris Cornell and Soundgarden.”
