Stone Sour - Heading Out To The Highway Lyrics




Hit'em boys!

Well I've said it before, and I'll say it again
You get nothing for nothing: expect it when
You're backseat driving, and your hands ain't on the wheel
It's easy to go along with the crowd,
And find later on that your say ain't allowed
Oh that's the way to find what you've been missing

So I'm heading out to the highway
I got nothing to lose at all
I'm gonna do it my way
Take a chance before I fall
A chance before I fall!

You can hang in a left or hang in a right
The choice it is yours to do as you might
The road is open wide to place your bidding
Now, wherever you turn, wherever you go
If you get it wrong, at least you can know
There's miles and miles to put it back together!

And I'm heading out to the highway
I got nothing to lose at all
I'm gonna do it my way
Take a chance before I fall
A chance before I fall!

On the highway! On the highway!

Making a curve or taking the strain
On the decline, or ut on the wain
Oh everybody breaks down sooner or later
We'll put it to rights, we'll square up and mend.
Back on your feet to take the next bend!
You weather every storm that's coming atcha!

And I'm heading out to the highway
I got nothin' to lose at all
I'm gonna do it my way
Take a chance before I fall
Yes, I'm heading out to the highway,
I got nothing to lose at all.
I got nothing to lose at all!

  1. Jose Vidal

    So great in tribute to Judas Priest. YEAH.

  2. Norbit Rice

    Spectre cover would be sick

  3. brian u

    Kick ass playing by this band,sonic bombast! Yessa!

  4. Carlos Eduardo

    For me, the best song of Judas Priest from the album Point of Entry among all their songs is the best in my opinion I love this song and the version made by Stone Sour was perfect.

  5. Jezz Torrend

    Cuantas grandes influencias tienen estos tipos

  6. Jigsaw Vocalist

    Well I've said it before, and I'll say it again

    You're backseat driving, and your hands ain't on the wheel
    It's easy to go along with the crowd,
    And find later on that your say ain't allowed
    Oh that's the way to find what you've been missing
    So I'm heading out to the highway
    I got nothing to lose at all
    I'm gonna do it my way
    Take a chance before I fall
    A chance before I fall!

    I got nothing to lose at all. I got nothing to lose at all!

  7. Evelyn Merchant

    This sucks balls.

  8. L0vac

    Ahh, Judas Priest, every song easily recognizable. Nowadays we get some mushed guitars without a single memorable riff (not to mention proper solos) and vocalists auto-tuned to hell and back. Love the cover

  9. daniel brawn

    What can't he sing its outrageous

  10. TheDarthneko

    Wow, just wow.

  11. Jimmy The Clown

    One of My all time favorite songs, huge respect for Corey Taylor ❤❤

  12. Kaye Gillanders

    I have to get this album. X

    Kaye Gillanders

    Alan Heyes awesome pop round to mine let's give em a spin ha ha x

    Alan Heyes

    Kaye Gillanders I’d totally take you up on that offer, but my fiancée might question my sudden actions. Ya know what I mean? Then if it becomes a regular occurrence, infidelity becomes the topic of the day. As innocent as our intentions may be. And that is why we cannot have nice things!

    I see you’re a bit of a percussionist. Got any favourite can hammerers? 😆

    Kaye Gillanders

    Alan Heyes oh yes lots. The drummer from Alter Bridge is a big fav and of course Stone Sour. And the Rush fella. I'm rubbish with names x

    Kaye Gillanders

    Bring your fiancé as well. It could be a party xx

    Alan Heyes

    Kaye Gillanders That’d be rad 👌🏻

    Fair play to ya, we’re all drawn to whomever tickles our fancy.

  13. bruce kim

    정말 멋진 커버곡이네요~ 코리의 목소리 매력적이고 야성적입니다~~★

  14. shorthander 77

    Corey......the universal voice!

  15. MRZMPNK TSA

    very good song very good version very good sound. I think that this song is spirit of 80x

  16. Sugar Ray V

    Excellent cover. Wish this music style would come back hard. The shit they call "rock" today is horseshit...

  17. Bharath S

    Man this song is pure braingasm.

  18. Luciano Valenzuela

    Nice cover, but the vocals need some more energy

  19. thiago cherubim

    Very good

  20. david retamal

    great cover... now i'm very interested on listen to their original material

  21. Tyrone Peisker

    Awesome version of the killer track! I am a huge fan of Judas Priest! And this version sounds just like it and just as great!

  22. InfernosReaper

    I'm gonna get some hate, but I feel like this just lacks energy & some high points.

    Alan Heyes

    InfernosReaper Nothing wrong with some healthy criticism. You're allowed to share your opinion, even if it is not popular amongst the rest of us.

  23. Jim Wingert

    Nothing beats Rob's voice, but this an awesome cover. Has been on my workout playlist for awhile

  24. Trent Oleksuik

    gotta say, they did an excellent job of this..

  25. Dominic Strickland

    Corey Taylor is an amazing artist, but he will never top Judas Priest's version. and this goes for any of their songs

  26. HinjuRock

    Taylor's voice doesn't come close to Halford in his prime.

    Alan Heyes

    HinjuRock They are very different types of vocalist. I doubt Rob in his prime could sing Slipknot's Scissors or Stone Sour's Road Hogs.

    HinjuRock

    @Alan Heyes

    Yeah - that's because Rob is a real singer, not a shitty death metal singer.

    Alan Heyes

    HinjuRock That’s quite a narrow-minded and obnoxious opinion.

    HinjuRock

    @Alan Heyes

    Hey, sometimes the truth can be that way. The majority of modern metal singers are shite - all they do is growl and scream in a death metal style trying to sound like Phil Anselmo, except that Phil Anselmo did it first and best and he was also a great clean singer back in the day. Corey Taylor is decent, but as I said, he's no Halford, Dio, Dickinson, Tate, Staley or Cornell. He should just stick to the death metal and clean emo-ish vocal styles that he's known for and leave the real hard rock/metal singing to those who are masters of it.

  27. Kenny Johnson

    they rock for real it sounds like good rock

  28. jackoblllllllll

    Nicely done, but it doesnt bring anything new to the song, they just play it

    Alan Heyes

    jackoblllllllll That was kind of the point of the Burbank cover EP's. Givin' a nod to their influences and stayin' as true to the sound as one can without imitating or parodying the original.

    What do you expect? The added editions of a Deathcore breakdown and a Salsa Swing vibe in the verses? Tell me, I need to know! 😛

    Judas Priest Defender

    I agree with both opinions. I think it's clear that they were trying to copy the original as closely as possible and they were successful. I did a cover of Subterfuge but changed quite a bit about it, it just depends on what inspired you to cover the song

  29. jim moler

    great job

  30. Shadow545 Zer0

    I'm a huge priest fan but I think this is better then the original almost like this song was written to be sung by Corey Taylor

    brian u

    Not close to Rob,but what a kick job. Wow!!

  31. Christine Manson

    this voice is an ear-melting powerhouse that blows any other singer away and I'm sure every other singer steps aside for the most talented vocalist in ROCK

  32. sew?

    a shade too fast and no opera..... the guts of this song was the voice... give it a 7.5...... drums are flat too.

  33. fede camusso

    such a good cover..WELL DONE STONE SOUR.

  34. themanwhosoldtheworld

    I wait GELATO AL CIOCCOLATO pupo cover dears stone sour!!!!!!!!

  35. Ant s

    respect to STONESOUR for a fantastic cover of the legend's that are JUDAS PRIEST.💀😈💀

  36. Matt March

    Are you kidding me?! I had know idea Stone Sour covered this!

  37. Dylan S

    Stone Sour is better than Slipknot

    AJ Patella

    I have no problems with your opinion, but I'd say S.S=SK

    S 99

    It's funny because I'm a fan of StoneSour but can't stand most Slipknot... Glad I'm not alone.

    Kaye Gillanders

    Revolutionary Guy totally agree. But there's a few slipknot gems xx

    Kaye Gillanders

    Lighten the fuck up people and enjoy the music!!

    Ken's Shaving & BS'ing

    This thread is figurative cancer

  38. Cristian Villaverde

    Perfect choosen song

  39. Jay Diefenderfer

    dam good cover

  40. Wayne Oneal

    judus preist was always great.. especially the late 70s into the early 80s..

  41. itkojecockot

    Judas were pretty good in 70's, but they were a MONSTER in the 80's.....

    northyorkguy2012

    Fuck ya awesome priest cover

    Glenn Tipton

    In terms of aggression and speed metal, i agree. In terms of musicianship and composition, i think their 70s stuff is the best. but it doesn't matter. Judas priest is my favorite band and they're awesome

  42. Eva 1

    dat voice. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. monicka lynn

    Thought this would suck....surprise!

  44. Plaid Beige

    Fuck Yeah!

  45. PhlashRockinmann

    Righteous, properly respectful cover/tribute to THE Metal band.

  46. MyALPHAguy

    best song in the album

  47. John Kelly

    spot on!!!...

  48. Nick Ellis

    I must admit, I did not know this was a cover until recently, though I went back and listened to the original and meh this versions better (IMO of course)

    Spacemutha

    That's blasphemy! Go back in time, grow up in the 80s and then come back and take another listen! Priest rule all. Joking (somewhat) love Em both but can't touch the original!

    steve ellis

    You give Ellis a bad name. This is actually good but accept no substitutes!

    steelerfreak1977

    You’re a fucking idiot who needs to clean the shit outta his ears. (IMO of course)

  49. Brandon Snyder

    Death to all but metal \\n/

    Chad Cassidy

    But metal?? hahah

    zombiefinatic

    @Chad Cassidy No death to all, but, metal

  50. cafb74

    this is quality music! cheers corey!

  51. Camilo Sanjuan Palacios

    you rock corey tailor

    A7X ANIMALS

    +Camilo Sanjuan Palacios GOOD JOB BUDDY you spelled his name wrong LOL

    Camilo Sanjuan Palacios

    @iamananimal42 pape esta buscando q le baje el dedo o q . you dead bitch

    James Arnold

    Perhaps it was his auto correct? Who cares? For you two to take the time to make fun...well, after all this time, I certainly hope your much better than that by now.

  52. FlyinEagle7

    Another exceptional cover by Stone Sour. I can't complain.

  53. Amadeus190890

    pretty decent

  54. M M

    FUCK Yeah! \m/

  55. Fraevo10

    I've been a JUDAS PRIEST fan since 1978. This is the 1st time I've heard this cover by STONE SOUR (it's August 16th, 2015) and it's absolutely BRILLIANT!!!

    I love Stone Sour but I had my doubts about these covers, but they're all performed brilliantly. No more doubts!

    AJAnewage

    +Fraevo10 it only got released on April 18, 2015 ......

    Torun Smok

    AJAnewage yes so August of the same year is well after that

    Kaye Gillanders

    I'm loving it. Awesome xx

  56. John Monahan

    Fuck yeah!!!

  57. Rambler 1

    Still looking for the hard copy release...

  58. Stephen Maxwell

    HOOK LINE SINKER

  59. Jay Becker

    Great cover ... Corey and the boys know how to keep it real.

  60. mike king

    I don't get y they had to fire Jim root to do slipknot when he could bounce between the two like Corey dose but Christian sounds kick ass root is one of my favorite guitarist

    Zekk Guitierrez

    I thought root left voluntarily

  61. harry Sachs

    Saw them sing this live at the TLA in Philly in January 2014. Awesome experience!

  62. Billy Jones

    Wow, they did a great cover of this! These guys are a damn good cover band! They've sounded good on every cover so far.

  63. Roy Hairy

    Nice cover totally nailed it.

  64. Garrett Dwyer

    Good cover.

  65. Sean Eggers

    Awesome

  66. TheZombie

    This is a good POP cover.

    Symbol

    still counts as rock sir.

    TheZombie

    @SporeTech Yes, it does.

  67. Flutter Hoof

    I'm a die hard Judas Priest fan and in my opinion Stone Sour did a great job here! \m/

    TheRedneckAtheist

    "...and fuck it up"

    Like when Gimp Bizquick covered Behind Blue Eyes.

    thiago cherubim

    Great job

    Fűzy Rudolf

    my father is a big Judas Priest fan and i show this song to him and he said: woow it's so cool

    Samuel Mauldin

    211Appolo dont forget about Ozzy with Children of the Grave and James Hetfield with Creeping Death!

    Adrian Black

    They did a fucking bang on job for sure.

  68. Samuel S

    without james its just nothing...

    Jakaś Nazwa

    +Samuel Urdaneta Sansone Not really.

    Samuel S

    james its james

    Jakaś Nazwa

    @Samuel Urdaneta Sansone I think he is good for Stone sour but fans should give a new guitarist a chance in Stone sour's new album.

  69. Michael Claudio

    Very 80's

  70. Christian Leonardo

    The best of the EP, keep rockin guys, I'm waiting for a new album to rip the hair of my head of, thanks for doing such good music
