Don’t You Dare Smile: SMILE EMPTY SOUL Cover ALICE IN CHAINS

If any of you listened to rock radio in the early 2000s then you probably (at some point) heard Smile Empty Soul‘s hit single “Bottom Of A Bottle.” Smile Empty Soul is a band that I thought long gone. I haven’t heard anything about the band since, like, 2004. Well, apparently they are still going strong and they released a new album back in May on eOne Music. That’s not the point of this post, however because I care nothing about this band. The point of this post is that Smile Empty Soul along with HURT have recorded a cover of the Alice In Chains classic “No Excuses.”

The cover is not terrible by any means as Smile Empty Soul are what is now referred to as “post-grunge” and have always had that gritty sound. I am a big fan of covers, as you all should know by this point, but I am way too big a fan of AiC to accept this one. You can hear “No Excuses” here.
