Metal is Everywhere

with one comment

I just had a conversation with a friend about music. I told her it was possible to find a metal/punk cover of just about any popular song. She remained absolutely convinced that it just impossible to turn songs like Dancing Queen into metal. I checked. Turns out she was wrong.

Entertaining stuff. I just love clever cover-versions. Especially when it turns out that it’s actually well-written song that you just always thought was horrible because the original artist performed it so poorly. As, for example, is the case with Britney Spears – Toxic, covered by A Static Lullaby
For your entertainment, here’s a little playlist:

Pain – Eleanor Rigby (Beatles)
Hypnogaja – Here Comes The Rain Again (Eurithmics)
Jameson – Beat It (Michael Jackson)
Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams (Eurithmics)
Surrender The Dancefloor – Just Dance (Lady GaGa)
I’d like to add a link to Evergreen Terrace performing Mad World by Tears For Fears, but unfortunately it’s been pulled off YouTube.
