Bootlegs Bloody Bootlegs

The recording entitled "Sepultura vs. Pavarotti - Roots Bloody Roots" circulating on the Internet in MP3 format was in fact done by German band J.B.O. Contrary to popular belief, it does not contain any of the supposed singers' voices. A video clip of J.B.O. performing the song live has been posted online at YouTube.
"For five or six years now, every day we receive e-mails from fans asking about a version of 'Roots Bloody Roots' with Luciano Pavarotti as guest," reads a posting on SEPULTURA's official web site. "'Is it really SEPULTURA in that song?' Of course not. This version of 'Roots Bloody Roots' was recorded by a German band called J.B.O. And it's probably one of the most popular versions for one of SEPULTURA's most popular songs."
According to Wikipedia, J.B.O., is a fun-metal band from Erlangen, Germany. Known for their cover versions of various modern rock and disco songs, each of their covers often has humorous modifications to the lyrics. Since 2000 the band has begun producing more self-written compositions, however they continue to produce Blöedsinns (this is an intentional misspelling used by the band: The correctly spelled word is "Blödsinn," which means "nonsense" in German) which refers to the nonsensical covers they perform.

The band's original name was "James Blast Orchester". Due to a legal argument with the record company of James Last they changed the name in June 1996 into the shortened form they are known by today. J.B.O. would not enter legal disputes for the last time as a result of the lawsuit — they were also sued for slander by the Patrizier Bräu German beer brewer because of the following "insulting" quote: "Patrizier finden wir nicht besser, das schmeckt wie reinstes Abgewässer." ("We're not impressed by Patrizier, it tastes like dishwater")

Here are the lyrics of that song with the supposed Sepultura with Pavarotti:

Roots bloody roots

Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots

I believe in our fate
We don't need to fake
It's all we wanna be
Watch me freak !!

Luciano Pavarotti:
I say
We're growing every day
Getting stronger in every way
I'll take you to a place
Where we shall find our

Luciano Pavarotti & Sepultura:
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots

Luciano Pavarotti:
Bring me the strength
Is breeding me this way
To get to another day
And all I want to see
Set us free

Luciano Pavarotti & Sepultura:
Can't you see
Can't you feel
This is real
Mama mia

I pray
We don't need to change
Our ways to be saved
That all we wanna be
Watch us freak

Luciano Pavarotti:
Do ré mi fa sol la si do ré mi
Do ré mi fa sol la si do ré mi
Believe it or not, till today (until I read this on BlabberMouth, I was one of those people who believed that it was originally done by Sepultura, heheh...! It is that good, check it out.)
Now that the truth is out, I can move that mp3 from the Sepultura folder to the cover-it-up folder.

Parting Shot:
Here's something off the topic from the main content that you can print and put as a poster in your den. Taken from the classic Apple ad.
Here's to the crazy ones...
The misfits;
the rebels...
The troublemakers
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules,
and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them,
disagree with them,
glorify or vilify them
About the only thing you can't do,
is ignore them;
because they change things
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough
to think they can change the world
are the ones who do.
Think Different.

Be yourself. No matter what happens.
