There's no doubt that Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody has cultivated his own unique singing style when carrying the Las Vegas rockers' high-energy original material. But when it comes to tackling classics by other rock bands, he might find himself in an uncomfortable position, musically.

That's how one could describe an off-the-cuff Five Finger Death Punch cover of Extreme's signature ballad, 1991's "More Than Words," kicked off on acoustic guitar by the F8 outfit's newest recruit, Andy James (the guitarist who replaced former member Jason Hook last year). Moody shared a clip of the quick "More Than Words" rendition, himself calling it "out of key," to Instagram on Monday (April 19).

"Out of key and not giving 2 shits," Moody captioned the clip, adding the hashtags #morethanwords and #lessthanperfect. Further hashtags on the video find the singer adding, when translated to sentence case, "This is not a cover, matter of fact, I'm not sure I should post this. Fuck it. Sorry."

But post it he did, a typically humbling move from the musician who's come a long way since finding sobriety and starting his own CBD oil health and wellness product line, Moody's Medicinals.

"Getting sober, I was looking for a way to start turning myself away from other possible addictions," Moody told Loudwire in 2019 of his inspiration to start the company. "I also didn't want to get into supplements for things that I knew how to control myself. CBD was just a no-brainer."

Of late, the singer's also hatching a plan to turn homes into addiction recovery centers.

F8, Five Finger Death Punch's most recent studio album, emerged last year, led by the singles "Inside Out" and "A Little Bit Off."  Extreme's "More Than Words" first appeared on the 1990 album Pornograffitti from the glammy group featuring Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt.
