Dyer Maker is faux reggae

Really all songs could be covered in reggae style, try Elton Johns Bennie and the Jets, that'll be cool
#7
Most any song with a good, steady rhythm would probably work well. Just try some stuff and see how it sounds.

I do a reggae version of the Johnny Cash version of Hurt, Katy Perry's Hot N' Cold, and it may seem like a joke but I actually do I Cum Blood.

^that's not even applicable. TS, listen to easy star all stars, they've done whole reggae cover albums of Dark side of the moon, OK computer, and Sgt Pepper's.

Look up 'Dread Zeppelin.' They do a ton of great classic rock reggae covers.
And they have an Elvis impersonator for a singer

EDIT: Damn, beaten to it.

A friend challenged me to come up with an unusual reggae cover, so I did Tom Waits' 'Misery's the River of the World'. It's posted in my profile if you wanna check it out. Comments and critisisms are appreciated.

every cage the elephant song,
pyramid and maybe love train from wolfmother

really just take any upbeat or senseless or protest song and give it the regae beat and it will work
Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry
AC/DC
StoneRider
Freedomhawk
The Darkness and/or the sideprojects of the band members
Buckcherry
The Answer

Theres more. But those are the main ones

My band does a Ska version of "Any Way You Want It" (by Journey). It's pretty badass.


I could see that being epic. I could also see that failing.
I can't wait till my fro is full grown.

I'd like to think it's epic! If we had a good recording of it I'd post it.

Check out the Aggrolite's covers of "Dont let me Down" and "Aint too proud to beg" on youtube. Just simplify the song, and add that kind of soul and groove.

I think that "don't trust me" by 30H!3 would be a MUCH better song in ska or reggae.

Edit: and of course, i cant remember who, but someone did a cover of Gin and Juice by Snoop.

Bob Marley's version of Hotel California is far superior to the original.
