Cover Songs: Let us celebrate this art.
« on: October 09, 2013, 08:10:55 pm »
You know what's great? Original songs. You know what's also great? When bands who didn't originally sing those songs are like, "Ha ha, nice try punks," and do their own versions.

Let us celebrate that. Share your favorite cover songs. I'm in the mood for my musical preconceptions to be rocked in strange and wonderful ways.

To get us started:

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Does "musical preconceptions" mean "ass"?

I'm sorry, I'll go die now. Move along.

I know your string quartet covers are ten a penny but I do enjoy their covers of Pantera:

Ah! Love Tally Hall. They're quite fun.

Also, Cake's version of Guitar Man is pretty fantastic:

MCR did a cover of Bob Dylan's Desolation Row, but I'm not gonna post it because Dylan's was (in my opinion) better anyway.

Double post, but worth it for what I think is an example of a cover which is better than the original. Sorry Val Helsing.

This may be one of my favorite covers of any song ever:

Worth listening to the whole thing.

Also, Krakow, I love the Pump Up the Jam cover.

I have a friend who posts obscure music like this constantly on facebook.  You can thank him.
