|Sevendust singles chronology|
"Angel's Son" is a song written by Lajon Witherspoon and Clint Lowery of Sevendust and performed by Witherspoon and two fellow Sevendust members (drummer Morgan Rose and guitarist/vocalist Clint Lowery) and ex-Snot band member (now ex-Sevendust guitarist) Sonny Mayo, for the post-mortem compilation CD in honor of James Lynn Strait known as Strait Up. This was the only single track from the tribute album. Subsequently, a studio version of the song was produced by Sevendust for the closing track to their 2001 album, Animosity.
The Strait Up version features the band with ex-Snot bandmates playing on a beach around a camp fire. Footage of James Lynn Strait from the band Snot who died with his dog Dobbs in a car accident is superimposed during a vigil around the campfire, growing in attendance with appearances of fellow musicians including System of a Down, Coal Chamber, Sugar Ray, Kittie, Incubus, Korn and others to say goodbye to their friend as a memorium title is revealed at the last few moments of the song.
The video opens up with a man walking through a hospital, and he's wearing an 'In Memory of Lynn Strait' T-shirt. Then the shot switches to an ER scene showing a man who is fighting for his life, and showing the urgency that goes on in the hospital trying to save his life. The band is shown playing in different parts of the hospital with the shots switching among each of the band members. Drummer Morgan Rose commented about the video, "I'm not really into videos where people are playing on fields or hospitals or places where there's no chance in hell that you'd see them play, but this actually turned out great." The video features all of the members of the band: lead vocalist, Lajon Witherspoon; guitarist, Clint Lowery; guitarist, John Connolly; drummer, Morgan Rose and bassist, Vinnie Hornsby.
