    Default Bulb/Periphery - Cover of Michael Jackson's "Black or White"

    When we found out about his death last night, we knew we had to cover a song as a tribute to one of our favorite musicians (and everyone elses, cuz cmon who seriously doesnt love MJ or at least didnt at some point in their life!). We decided to do Black or White and got to work.
    Huge thanks to Taylor Larson for engineering Chris's vocals as he did a terrific job!

    You can hear it here:

    or

    Enjoy!

    RIP Michael

    Nice job...I'm not all that into MJ anymore, but man this revved-up cover sounds great! Do I hear a Washburn N4 in there doing the guitar work?

    I know, I wasn't saying that was a bad thing. I just thought 'hey cool, it's the guy from that other forum'.
