Serious Covers

A Collection of Cover Songs:

So, we don't do covers posts anywhere near as often as I would like - but that's due to the fact that there is so much great new, original material out there. We first ran one of these several months back and it was wildly popular. Thought this would be a nice way to kick off your weekend and share some interesting covers with our newer readers.

There's nothing like great musicians paying respect and showing their love for the songs that get them through the day - the songs of other great bands... We've got you covered!

REM did Editors' "Munich" in return. I can send it to you if you don't have it. Same name on Twitter.

I'm loving that White Stripes cover by the flaming lips - using the Butthole Surfers - Going to Florida as lyrics. so crazy and obscure.
