Youtube is blooming with these so called 'Metal/Rock Covers' of famous pop songs.

While some standard youtube musicians simply add some layers of distorted guitar and release their tracks, there are a few pieces that are actually worth the listen.

Have you come across any that you would like to share?

Here's one I heard just recently:

No, I judge people based on how similar they are to me.
The greater the similarity, the more of a total ****ing **** they are.


Metal is like an apple. Everything is good except for the core

I mostly think they're awful.


I'd rather listen to the pop tune they cover most of the time.

You know what? Chugging on a guitar should be banned. Djent? BAN. Metalcore? BAN. Dubstep because it might as well be the same thing? BAN.

even though I actually enjoy a good chunk of Betraying the Martyrs' stuff I refuse to listen to a cover of that Let it Go song, I've never even heard the original but I really don't want to

also metal covers are terrible and buttpunk goes pop vol 1-666 should all be deleted from existence

not gonna lie, I've seen the thread title for a while now, and before opening it, I kept thinking it was about like a literal cover, like book covers or something, and I was really confused.

that thread would probably be more interesting than this one though.
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

Personally I really like some of the covers. Some are just horrible obviously but sometimes if the original song is decent and the covering artist manages to add just the right amount of metal to it without going overboard then i think it's quite cool.

It can actually make an otherwise unlistenable pop song into something that i can rather enjoy because of the drums, guitar and aggressive vocals.

I recently tried my hand at one of my own covers. I did Katy Perry - Dark Horse, I know its been done like a million times but i like the song. Here is my go of it.

I'm pretty much done with the video so it will go on Youtube tomorrow but you guys can feel free to grab it here if you like since it's like relevant to the thread n all even tho clearly most of you guys hate this stuff but i don't care

Ideally I would prefer a carbon fiber cover. Dat weight reduction!

...modes and scales are still useless.
