Mastodon, In Flames and Stone Sour Members Cover Filter’s “Hey Man, Nice Shot”


Filter’s ’90s output is nearly universally loved throughout the metalsphere, and now some notable metal musicians have teamed up for a cover of the one of the band’s biggest hits, “Hey Man, Nice Shot.” The lineup consists of:

Bill Kelliher (Mastodon): guitar
Ryan “Fluff” Bruce (YouTuber): guitar
Johnny Chow (Stone Sour): bass
Tanner Wayne (In Flames): drums
Daniel Carriere (Royal Tusk): vocals

Carriere told Consequence of Sound of the collaboration:

“I first heard ‘Hey Man Nice Shot” on a compilation cassette I bought in grade 7 called Absolute 90s. Filter was alongside The Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr, and Sonic Youth, to name a few — it was a great album all around, but ‘HMNS’ stuck out to me. There was something honest, gritty, and dirty about that song, and I couldn’t get enough.”

“All the tracks from Short Bus, which this song came from, are awesome, but this one has stood the test of time. I would argue that, in a way, the song hits even harder against the backdrop of music today. They are a wildly underrated band, and I jumped at the chance to pay homage to them with this cover! Also, the Budd Dwyer story which the song is about his jaw-dropping.”
