Rock supergroup Black Country Communion was formed in 2009. The band consists of Glenn Hughes (lead vocals, bass), Joe Bonamassa (guitar, vocals), Jason Bonham (drums), and Derek Sherinian (keys). While each member of the band still has its own projects the group has released four studio albums since its inception. Here are Black Country Communion’s top 10 songs to date.
10. “Sista Jane”
“Sista Jane” is a rocker with an AC/DC vibe featuring Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa going back on forth with the vocals. It has a memorable chorus and is one of the standout tracks on the Black Country Communion’s debut album.
9. “The Battle For Hadrian’s Wall”
“The Battle For Hadrian’s Wall” was written by Joe Bonamassa and has Joe playing acoustic guitar. Hadrian’s Wall was built by the Roman Empire and stretched over 70 miles across northern England.
Joe Bonamassa channels his inner Paul Kossoff with a memorable riff and Hughes belts “My lack of faith has no shame, it is reckless and I know there’s no flame for the faithless.”
7. “Last Song For My Resting Place”
“Last Song For My Resting Place” is a song Joe Bonamassa wrote that was inspired by Wallace Hartley, who was a violist and bandleader on the Titanic.
5. “Save Me”
“Save Me” is a track drummer Jason Bonham brought to the table and the riff has a heavy Led Zeppelin vibe. The idea began when Bonham was working with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.
4. “An Ordinary Son”
Joe Bonamassa wrote “An Ordinary Son” and is on lead vocals for the track. A strong rock track and a definite highlight from BCC 2.
“Cold” is a Glenn Hughes penned track that appeared on BCC 2. Hughes sings about the coldness of grief and Bonamassa’s guitar takes Hughes’ emotional lyrics to another level.
2. “One Last Soul”
“One Last Soul” was the first song Black Country Communion ever performed live and was the band’s very first single. A great rock track released in a time desperate for good new rock music.
1. “Song of Yesterday”
“Song of Yesterday” appeared on Black Country Communion’s debut album and was also performed on the band’s Live Over Europe album. Bonamassa takes the reigns on lead vocals for an epic rock journey which climaxes with one of the most memorable guitar solos in Bonamassa’s career.
