In 2014, the song was covered by German heavy metal band Iron Savior as a surprise track on their album Rise of the Hero. Vocalist/guitarist Piet Sielck explained that the band originally intended the song to be a bonus track for their limited edition release. He addressed why it never came to be:

"we simply liked it too much and finally decided to make it a regular album track."[10]
