Nonpoint wants its fans to choose the next song that it covers.
The band has launched a new campaign that gives audiences the chance to choose the band’s next cover. The first round of the contest consisted of 64 songs, reduced that number to 32 and now has whittled the list to 16 songs.
The current list of contenders for covers includes, but is not limited to: Jay Z, Metallica, and Genesis. Speaking of Genesis, Nonpoint covered Phil Collins’ hit song ‘In The Air Tonight’ on its album Recoil (2004). The band’s major label debut Statement (2000) featured a cover of Busta Rhymes’ hit song ‘Woo-Hah!! Got You All In Check’ and Wu-Tang Clan’s song ‘Method Man.’ The two songs were culled in one song.
The band issued a statement that notes the decision to curate the list came from its fans’ requests for more covers.
“Over the years we have asked this question time and time again on our socials,” the statement reads. “Accumulating answers both traditional and nontraditional, from ages as young as 8 to as old as 80. Seeing how many of you discovered us years ago in this very fashion makes this campaign very special. We have always said that our fans are our lifeblood and always come to bat for us when we need them most. So with this campaign we wanted to show our fans the power they have being a member of the 361 family and Nonpoint Nation”
