On the cover for Rolling Stone’s new album, “The Hunting Party,” the title “The Killing Machine” is written on the cover.
(The song, which features an alternate ending, was released in 2018.)
The article notes that the song “is one of the most important pieces of art to come out of this era, and the fact that it’s the first to feature the band on the covers is just icing on the cake.”
The article goes on to say, “There is no doubt that the Killing Machine is the definitive record of the 1980s and a seminal moment in rock ‘n’ roll, and their influence is felt in everything from punk rock to metal to indie pop.
We think the song is a fitting tribute to a band that, despite being a great band, has never been the same after so many years.
We’re so proud of our readers who are excited about this record.”
