I'm not really sure what to say, but here are a few more odd, interesting and just plain surprising cover songs that I decided to share with everyone!
Number 1: Coheed And Cambria - "Purple Haze"
The well-known Progressive Metal band did a pretty darn cool live acoustic version of what is definitely Hendrix's signature song.
Number 2: Blondie - "Rock On"
This 2012 single is a cover of David Essex's only big hit and though I don't personally like it that much, I figured it needed to be on this list.
Number 3: Pantera - "Hole In The Sky"
A hard-to-find track, released on a single, but not on many Pantera compilation albums.
Number 4: The Rolling Stones - "Get Up, Stand Up"
From a live DVD of the Stones' "A Bigger Bang" tour.
Number 5: Europe - theme from "2001: A Space Odyssey"
The keyboard player and drummer of the band Europe gave this interesting duo performance of one of the coolest movie themes, during a 1987 concert in the bands' home country of Sweden.
Number 6: Pearl Jam - "Rockin' In The Free World"
A live performance from the mid-1990s.
Number 7: Tears For Fears - "Ready To Go"
The New Wave hitmakers recorded this cover of the Arcade Fire song as a way of saying thank you to all the artists who have sampled their songs over the years.
I hope this is amusing to all, because it was a whole lot of fun for me! Read the first part of the article here.
