Song of the Day: "Mama Said Knock You Out" by Five Finger Death Punch (LL Cool J Cover)


Happy Mother's Day! To celebrate, I figured I'd find a Mother's Day related song, and while the song is technically about LL's grandmother, the song is still far more fitting than I ever would have originally imagined. See, James (Ladies Love Cool James) was inspired by his grandmother to "knock out all his critics." She, like many of our mothers who inspire and keep us going, still had faith in his talent.

Of course, what's more fun than sharing the original? A cover of course! This one is by Five Finger Death Punch, the guys who did "The Bleeding", "Never Enough", "Stranger Than Fiction" and at least two other awesome covers - "Bad Company" and, more recently, "House of the Rising Sun".

Enjoy the song!
