Corey Taylor Drops ‘On The Dark Side’ From Covers And Acoustic EP


Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor recently released his version of John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band‘s 1983 song “On the Dark Side.”

The track is the lead single from Taylor’s upcoming solo EP CMFB. Sides, which is due to arrive on February 25 via Roadrunner Records.

The original version was featured in the 1983 film Eddie and the Cruisers. The movie, which was based on the P.F. Kluge fiction novel of the same name, was directed by Martin Davidson.

Taylor’s version features a well-balanced and modern sound with a familiar guitar tone and hand claps.
