Jane's Covers Classic Song for SOA

"When Jane's Addiction said they were into the idea of doing Sympathy for the Devil for the show, we were completely blown away.  This was made all the more sweet because theirs was the first and only door we knocked on. Jane's Addiction is one of the few post 60's/70's, iconic bands that resonates with our show's mythology.  They have typified rebellion from their very beginnings. It seemed a natural fit between a band and a song with so many layers of meaning to the Sons of Anarchy narrative. I can proudly say that the end product speaks for itself. Working with them, as a band and as individuals, was an incredibly satisfying experience."- Bob Thiele (SOA music composer).

On the season finale of 'Sons of Anarchy' Jane's will cover the classic song "Sympathy for the Devil".  The track will also be featured on the SOA Volume 2 soundtrack, available November 19.

    I'm confused... Jane's covered this song already on their 1987 album "Triple X". Are they recording a new cover for the show or is the show just going to use the '87 Jane's cover version? In any case, it's a fantastic show and an awesome cover!

    Cool to get a studio version finally. Hope it's not LOUDNESS WARS mastering like the last two albums. Vlado "clothears" Meller couldn't even get the vinyl right, what a useless fuck.
