While covers of The Prodigy have been flowing in to honour vocalist Keith Flint who tragically passed away recently, did you know that Sepultura had actually covered 'Firestarter' back in 2011?
The nu-metal legends released the heavy version as a bonus track on their 2011 album Kairos, and have actually performed it live a few times since then, but the time they played it at their first-ever appearance at Brazil's Rock in Rio last year takes the cake. The pro-shot footage shows them ripping through The Prodigy's mega-hit with a line of tribal drummers bringing some pounding energy in classic Sepultura style. Check it out:
Keith Flint was found dead in his home at the age of 49 on March 4, and it has since been revealed that he took his own life.
