No More Pain’s Mike Roman and Mind Riot’s Mike Rainone teamed up to record a cover of Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike” back in January. Studio IV Productions shot it for one of their “Black Couch Sessions.” The result is a striking, spot-on cover. The video has garnered over 16,000 views on youtube, with close to 600 likes and a lot of well-earned praise in the comments section.
Mike and Mike’s rendition of “Hunger Strike” is arguably one of the best Temple Of The Dog covers on the internet. While the video was released several months before Chris Cornell left this world, it serves as a powerful tribute to a man whose talent will no doubt inspire musicians for generations to come.
Mike Roman and Mike Rainone will team up again on Thursday 10/26 when their bands, No More Pain and Mind Riot take the stage at House Of Independents in Asbury Park for “Burden In My Hand: Tribute To Chris Cornell.” The evening will also include performances from a number of special guests. Tickets are $10 and are available HERE.
