      Wow, you are a tremendous fucking idiot.

    • godfuck

      • Coop

        Your both dumb. 1. it’s not a truck. 2. a bugatti does have 1000hp tards.

    • VL123

      wow…you are dumbass. That’s a rat rod.. WTF would you put a Bugatti on the cover when these guys like muscle cars!? Moron.

  • John

    Looks like they got an idea from Metallica’s Through the Never video. In the beginning James is in a hot rod and shoots a huge fire ball from it .. Why not put it on their new cover – Way to be original Godsmack! :)

    • gmac1998

      Are you retarded? A LOT of rat rods can shoot flames. It in no way means they took any ideas from Through the Never…

  • Brendon Whitfield

  • Negativemrb

    Please pay Alice in Chains royalties for their sun logo you ripped off , Godsmack

    • Michelle G.

      Umm that Argument, is decades old!! Get over it!! Alice n Chains don’t seem to have any issues….I Love Alice in Chains, Godsmack does too, they have many times openly expressed AIC was an inspiration, they gave credit, Move on already….don’t be a “Greedy little baby”!! lol Peace!!

      • Negativemrb

        I’ve read that jerry Cantrell and company do have issues with it, they can’t come to a lawsuit due to the fact that Layne Staley drew it and has since passed away,…. Besides I just don’t like Godsmack! ( so I’ll cry like a bitch)Peace to you as well!

  • Michelle G.

    I Like it!! I Like how the S ties into the GS logo. It’s Cool looking, actually rather Bad ASS!! Nice Job!! Can’t wait, see you BOYZ in Cincinnati 8-17!!!!!!! For the Record, GODSMACK KICKS ASS!!!!

  • MidnightFairy 28

    It’s cool, maybe not their best one. My favorite will always be their first album cover. I’m more excited about hearing the rest of the new music. I’ve loved these guys for like 16 years now and anxiously await any new material. 1000hp,the song, is awesome musically and has a wicked chorus.

  • Pete Braun

    That is one awesome album cover!

  • Flip

    I’m amazed that anyone cares what an album cover looks like beside the band and the record company. I’m more amazed that people feel the need to post negative comments about EVERYTHING, ALWAYS. I hope some day all these sites will realize that the comment sections are MOSTLY magnets for nasty, negative, crappy people who are incapable of a kind word or original thought. REALLY?!?!? It’s such a “Horrible” cover?!?! IDK people…… on my screen is a pic of a Race car, not a picture of Jesus blowing Osama Bin Laden or Hitler peeing on a Menorah. Maybe some people are seeing something like that. That would explain a response like Horrible. I hope they catch this hacker that is replacing these innocuous, pleasant images with Horrible ones that evoke such negativity and hurt people’s eyes.

  • chief

    This drag racer approves :) bitchin man, can’t wait!!!

  • Jon Thompson
