One of the more unique songs in The Rolling Stones’ catalogue is their song “Gimme Shelter” off of their album Let It Bleed. The song features incredible vocals from Mick Jagger, and guest vocalist Merry Clayton. The song has become synonymous with the Vietnam War, because of its lyrics and the time period it was released.
Many people have taken on the song for covers and tributes, and it’s an extremely difficult song to live up to. However, this young rock band, gave the song a run for their money! Especially the lead singer.
These guys are known as Chalk, and covered the song at an event called Como’s Got Talent.
