So Shinedown has a new song out, to be featured on the soundtrack to The Expendables. Presumably it’s the same song we heard briefly in the trailer, and presumably it’s not a brand-new tune, but rather a previously unreleased one. The name of this song is “Diamond Eyes“. If that title sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same title as the Deftones’ latest album (which itself has a song entitled “Diamond Eyes”).

Now, obviously there’s many songs and albums out there that use the same words or phrases; that kind of thing is to be expected. But the title Diamond Eyes is WAY too unique and specific to be used twice, let alone within such a short time span (the Deftones album was released not even two months ago). Even if Deftones had released that album 15 years ago, people would still be thinking that maybe Shinedown, y’know, ripped it the fuck off.

I’m sure the guys in Shinedown are aware of the inconvenient timing, because the full track title is actually “Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)”. Now that’s a song title you’d never wanna have to say out loud, lest you run the risk of throwing up in your mouth a little bit.
