Godsmack + Staind Perform Pantera’s ‘This Love’ During Texas Uproar Fest Stop

Godsmack have always been vocal about how much of an influence Pantera had on their career and so it seemed only fitting that when the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival rolled into Pantera’s home state of Texas that the band would pay homage to them at some point during the night.

It didn’t take long to get that ball rolling as Sully Erna and Godsmack were joined center stage by Mike Mushok and Aaron Lewis of Staind. Together they ripped into ‘This Love’ from Pantera’s 1992 release ‘Vulgar Display of Power,’ a disc that coincidentally just secured the No. 1 position in Loudwire’s Top 10 Albums of 1992 proving what an impact it made on both musicians and music fans alike.

The stage quickly became an all-star cast of the 2012 Class of Uproar Fest with members of Fozzy, P.O.D. and more providing gang vocals during the chorus on one side of the stage while Rita Haney, the longtime girlfriend of late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott, joined in on the other side of the stage, making for quite a special metal moment.

Erna closed out the song, saying, “Rest in peace Dimebag Darrell, we miss you.”

Fans in the crowd managed to capture the performance from several different angles. Check out a few of their takes below.

Uproar Fest wraps up at the end of September, check out all of the remaining dates and locations here.
