Classic Cover: Lord of the Lost – “Shock To The System” (original by Billy Idol)

I swear we’ve had an oddly large number of Billy Idol covers this year, but here’s another one – and a song we’ve definitely not featured before!

One year after the release of their game changing #1 charting album (Germany), Blood & Glitter, Lord Of The Lost are back with their first ever covers album, Weapons Of Mass Seduction, set to be released on 29th December 2023 via Napalm Records.

The band have also unveiled the opening track of their upcoming offering, an electrifying cover of Billy Idol’s “Shock To The System”.

Vocalist Chris Harms on “Shock To The System”:

I remember exactly when I heard this song for the first time. I was 13 years old, it was summer and I was sitting in the back of the Opel Manta convertible in which I drove to the open-air pool with my older sister and her boyfriend. Rarely has the energy of a single song gripped me so much. We’d like to give a little bit of that energy back with our tribute to Billy Idol and this song through our cover and accompanying video.
