Daughtry Pays Tribute to Chris Cornell with a Cover of “Hunger Strike” ft. LaJon Witherspoon


Rocker Daughtry has shared a new cover of Temple of the Dog’s 1990s classic song “Hunger Strike” as a tribute to Chris Cornell, who died four years ago. The track features LaJon Witherspoon of Sevendust on co-lead vocals, in the role Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam had on the original track. Check out the track with a cool visualizer below.

 

 

Chis Daughtry says: “Chris Cornell is one of the defining voices that grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me want to be a rock singer. ‘Hunger Strike’ is one of, if not the most iconic rock duets of our generation. It’s the whole ’90s wrapped up in one song. Doing this song with Lajon, one of my favorite humans I’ve had the pleasure of calling friend and brother, means the world to me.”

 

Lajon shares: “What an honor to be a part of this incredible song and to work with my brother Chris Daughtry and the boys. This to me was a musical movement in our community and still to this day in the world.”
