Elviral Video: The Oak Ridge Boys Cover "Seven Nation Army"

Posted By on Wed, Mar 25, 2009 at 11:49 AM

So The Oak Ridge Boys--that's "ORB" for you Ridge-heads--are releasing an album in May called The Boys Are Back, and it features the little gem you can hear above. Surprisingly, the album is named for neither that Thin Lizzy song nor the JEFF the Brotherhood album, but rather the record's title track, which was written by none other than Shooter Jennings.

So when you're listening to this cover of "Seven Nation Army," do you find it more or less ominous than the original when dude mimics that Jack White riff with his voice? Any guesses as to what other covers might be present on the album? T. Pain's "Chopped and Screwed"? Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years"? Anything by ZZ Top?

My buddy grew up across the street from the mustachioed Oak Ridge Boy, who (while shirtless and be-mulleted) often used to challenge him to basketball. This was when my friend was obviously way too young to ever beat a fully-grown man at basketball. Weird. Just something to think about.
