This acoustic cover of "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Brent Smith and Zach Myers from Shinedown got a bit of publicity last year before anyone had even heard it... mainly because Bon Jovi had been singled out as the band "blocking" the release of Smith and Myers' (Acoustic Sessions) album. From what I can gather, Zach made a slightly flippant remark in an interview and a whole bunch of other websites jumped on it to blame Jon for not allowing a cover.
Anyway, "Wanted Dead or Alive" will now be released on (Acoustic Sessions, Pt. 2) along with three other songs for which publishing permissions couldn't be obtained in time for the first EP's release.
Check it out.
