Listen: William Shatner Covers Black Sabbath

He is Rocket AND Iron Man!

Sep 09, 2011 William Shatner Bookmark and Share

Oh William Shatner. He is common people, and rocket man…why not add iron man to his list of achievements? Today, the first gentleman of ironic covers released his take on Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.” It’s not a dramatic departure from the original, but let’s face it—we’ll always buy whatever Shatner’s selling.

The cut comes from Shatner’s double album, Searching for Major Tom—October 11. Check out the tracklist, and “Iron Man” below.
