Shreddy Krueger Cover Foo Fighters’ “My Hero”

Though we aren’t seeing quite as many cover songs as we did a year or so ago, there are still some bands releasing quality covers.

Instead of picking a generic pop song like many other groups, the band decided to take the time to record their version of Foo Fighers‘ hit single “My Hero.” You can give it a listen below the break.

If you like what you hear, the song is available for purchase through iTunes.…
