Someone has finally done a metal version of Tears for Fears’ “Shout”

“Shout” was one of massive singles from Tears for Fears’ 1985 album, Songs from the Big Chair. This can’t be the first-ever version of the song, can it? Whatever the case, props to Versus Me for this version.

    Disturbed did a great cover of Shout on their 2000 album The Sickness.

    You’re very wrong, friend. The band Disturbed made a way better metal version years ago. Go check it on YouTube.

    Disturbed, At Vance, Atrocity, On Being Human, Tenkan (sorta metal) – all have made metal covers of Shout. I’m sure there are others, too.

    Keep in mind, DISTURBED has done so many covers through out their career, it’s gotten hard to remember all the ones they’ve done.
