Hear Bon Jovi’s ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ covered by Smith & Myers of Shinedown

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Two members of Shinedown have unplugged for a new take on Bon Jovi’s timeless ‘Wanted Dead or Alive.’ The Jacksonville, Florida alternative metal band is on hiatus after the release of 2012’s ‘Amaryllis,’ giving singer Brent Smith and guitarist Zach Myers time to dig into some choice cover material.

And they’re not simply doing it for the fun of it, either. This Bon Jovi update, which premiered at Loudwire, is part of a new project in which the duo is asking fans to vote online to decide which songs they will take on.

Smith & Myers issued ‘Acoustic Sessions,’ featuring six fan-voted songs from Metallica, the Clash, the Black Crowes and others, back in January. ‘Acoustic Sessions Part 2,’ with the largely faithful Bon Jovi track, is due on Tuesday, March 18. Also included are Phil Collins’ ‘In the Air Tonight’ and Pearl Jam’s ‘Black.’
