Sometimes a great cover isn’t a great song, this is a great cover by Throwdown of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back, and it’s pretty cool, and not a bad song by any means, but it’s just not a great song.See the Full Post with Videos!
This is a cover of the late great David Bowie’s 1970 release “The Man Who Sold The World”. I grew up in the time of Nirvana, and was 17 when he died, but I wasn’t a very big fan at the time, as I grew older they grew on me more, and this cover in 1993 was one of the songs that I always liked from them, and prefer it over the David Bowie version…See the Full Post with Videos!
When you think of cover songs, and you consider what songs Red Hot Chili Peppers would cover, something like the Ohio Players song Love Rollercoaster isn’t the first thing to come to mind. Then when you realize it was for the Beavis and Butthead movie it begins to make sense. Great cover though, they do a fantastic job.See the Full Post with Videos!
Sevendust brings this song cross-genre and makes an amazing metal version of the rap song y LL Cool J. I like that they keep the basics of the song, but amp it up with screaming guitars and vocals.See the Full Post with Videos!
Anthrax covering Kansas with this song is, for the most part, one of those cover songs that I tend to complain about. Anthrax added nothing original or even tried to make it their own, they just tried to sound as much like the original as possible. I prefer when bands make songs their own or original in some way. It’s not a bad song if you like the Kansas version.See the Full Post with Videos!
Personal Jesus is probably one of the most well known Depeche Mode songs, it’s unique and iconic, most people know the song within seconds of it starting. That being said, it can be hit or miss covering a song like this, but as with most other Marilyn Manson covers, they hit it out of the park,See the Full Post with Videos!
I saw the Dropkick Murphy band live last year with Flogging Molly, and at the end of the set they invited people up on stage with them and played this song, it was surprisingly good. Maybe not what I would have expected AC/DC to be like live, but still pretty good.See the Full Post with Videos!
Mindless Self Indulgence is a terrible band, and I think that’s what makes them so great. Doing a cover of a LEGEND like Method Man, and actually doing it justice while ripping it apart and building it back up in your own image is what makes this song so good. Good job MSI.See the Full Post with Videos!
I wasn’t a really big Michael Jackson fan when I was a kid, but I remember this song mostly because of the Weird Al version of it. I think the Fall Out Boy version is fantastic though, just a little faster and heavier in all the right places.See the Full Post with Videos!
This is another one of those songs that I didn’t know was a cover song. For a song originally written by a man Joan Jett makes it sound very personal, almost haunting. Really Great cover.See the Full Post with Videos!
