Erik Grönwall unveils cover of Europe’s track “Let The Good Times Rock”
Skid Row lead vocalist Erik Grönwall continues to release covers of different songs and this time he has tackled Europe‘s classic track “Let The Good Times Rock” from the Swedish rockers’ album Out of This World (1988). Grönwall was accompanied for this cover by his former H.E.A.T bandmate Erik Hammarbäck (a.k.a Eric Rivers) on guitar and Erik Modin who handled all the other instruments as well as production duties.
Wikipedia states the following in part about Europe‘s album Out of This World: “Out of This World was the band’s follow up album to the successful album The Final Countdown, but it did not match the success of its predecessor. Upon its release in August 1988, Out of This World peaked at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album is Europe‘s best-selling album in Switzerland. Out of This World achieved platinum status in the United States, platinum status in Switzerland and gold in Canada.
Out of This World included the hit singles “Superstitious”, “Open Your Heart” and “Let the Good Times Rock”, all of which had accompanying music videos. “Superstitious” was released in the fall of 1988 and became arguably the band’s most recognizable song from the album. Its music video received heavy airplay on music television.”
