L.A. Rats, Featuring Rob Zombie And Nikki Sixx, Share ‘I’ve Been Everywhere’ Cover

Rob Zombie and Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx have joined forces to form new supergroup L.A Rats.

The band, which also features Zombie guitarist John 5 and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos, shared their new cover of “I’ve Been Everywhere.”

Originally written and recorded in 1959 by Geoff Mack, the song was made popular in 1962 by Australian singer Lucky Starr. It was later covered by Johnny Cash in 1996.

The band turns the song from an upbeat, country jam to a hard rocking anthem with Zombie’s sinister vocals and John 5’s blazing riffs. Check out the lyric video below.

L.A. Rats’ new cover will be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming Netflix film, The Ice Road, starring Liam Neeson. Premiering June 25th, the movie’s description reads, “To save a team of miners trapped underground, a down-on-his-luck ice road trucker joins a mission across treacherous terrain to deliver rescue equipment.”

The accompanying soundtrack drops July 30th and features tracks from Jason Isbell, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, and Carly Pearce, in addition to a collaboration between Johnny Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, and Cheap Trick singer Robin Zander. Pre-order the soundtrack here.
