William Shatner's Rendition of Iron Man Isn't As Terrible As It Could Be

Probably because he’s actually making an attempt to do the version justice and not just speaking the lyrics like you’d think he would. It’s also helped by Zakk Wylde assisting on vocals and guitars too. It appears as part of a concept album of covers with space themes that Shatner put together. Now of course Captain Kirk is probably going to butcher other songs on the album but it’s pretty hard to mess this song up. Here is the song and after the jump is the complete track listing for ‘Seeking Major Tom’ due out on October 11th.
