Grateful Dead

Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned! Thanks!

It's about that time to break out the banjo, gather up the family band, and let your creativity flow, visually and vocally. The DEAD COVERS PROJECT returns in 2018! We will be featuring selections on Grateful Dead properties all February long but you can send in your submissions as soon as January 1st. Simply upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, in February.

Check out this year's growing playlist.

HippieGirlAnna --

That's so bizarre. Why YOUR video? there are by now literally thousands of these cover videos on youtube. Are they slowly going to start chipping away at them? Someone from the Dead office should call them up and let them know to leave these alone!!

Universal Music Publishing Group is big on blocking anything by the Eagles on youtube but I don't think they have any rights to Ice Nine or the Grateful Dead.

I'd contest it.

Nope - I'm wrong - The Dead signed over their catalog to UMPG in 2014 but I don't believe they have been enforcing this on Youtube. It would suck if they did. Another win for Corporate Capitalism.

Saw them play it dozens of times in the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Check out the crazy left-handed strat solo at 2:30.
