NFT: Recent cover songs you heard and liked?

DanMetroMan : 3/21/2019 7:31 am
I guess this is technically not a cover but a performance by someone else on a singing competition show but this blew me away... any other performances or covers people are enjoying?

I guess Creep lends itself to covers  
Gatorade Dunk : 3/21/2019 9:37 am : link
Carrie Manolakos' cover of Creep is haunting.

Is 2015 recent?  
St. Jimmy : 3/21/2019 9:38 am : link
I heard it for the first time within the last 6 months. The Interrupters covering The 11th Hour by Rancid.

Tim Armstrong from Rancid produced their latest release. Good cover.

Aimee Allen (aka Aimee Interrupter) is one of the most talented artists who is not very well known. Good to see them have some success finally.

Their cover of Africa was lame, basically the same as the original and not as good.
Simon & Garfunkel - Scarborough Fair  
Bill in Del : 3/21/2019 10:26 am : link
These guys nail it...Mike Masse does a great job on other covers as well.

Take on Me  
elpeces : 3/21/2019 10:29 am : link
Is it a cover if it is by the original band? I like the slower version done by A-ha for Deadpool 2.
Not new  
pjcas18 : 3/21/2019 10:33 am : link
but Reel Big Fish does a good cover of Take On Me.

Also for a movie, one of the worse movies ever. BASEketball.

Not sure if it’s considered a cover

But Grinch by Small Town Titans is amazing. Lead singer has awesome range.

Sounds of Silence cover

by Disturbed is the best cover I've heard in a long while.

It is a great cover. But the live version they did on Conan in 2016 is much better than the recorded version they did IMO.

Phish actually does a great job covering that whole album from time to time.

Sturgill Simpson  
bigbluehoya : 3/21/2019 1:00 pm : link
"The Promise" (When in Rome) and "In Bloom" (Nirvana)
I genuinely think this is best cover of all time  
AcesUp : 3/21/2019 1:29 pm : link
Was way late to the party on Chris Stapleton as I'm not a country music fan. Came across this shortly after Prince died and turned me on to his music. Best version of this song and probably my choice for best cover all time.
Chris Stapleton covering "Nothing Compares to You" - ( New Window )
Postmodern Jukebox cover of All About the Bass  
MadPlaid : 3/21/2019 1:32 pm : link
Meghan Trainor's song is okay. Not my cup of tea. However, Postmodern Jukebox's cover makes it much more to my liking. Stripped down jazz version. Very cool IMHO.
All About the Bass - ( New Window )

Mr. Bungle : 3/21/2019 1:33 pm : link
"recent" as the last 20 years, just so I can fit some of these in:

Secret Chiefs 3 "Halloween Theme"

Fantômas "The Godfather Theme"

Lisa Loeb "All the Young Dudes"

Regina Spektor "No Surprises"

Scala & Kolacny Brothers "Exit Music (For a Film)"

Motley Crue's just released cover of Madonna's "Like a Virgin". Surprisingly decent rendition.

I'll have to check it out. Tim Armstrong is one of my favorite artists. The Interrupters music I've heard stands out against most other ska bands. Her singing is a big part of it.

Another good recent cover is
Against Me! covering "People Who Died." I never heard the original until I looked it up after hearing the cover. Good idea for a song.

Here is an old version (few years ago) that Grace Vanderwaal did before she became popular through America's Got Talent. I like it as it is just an innocent girl strumming her Uke with her dog on the front porch. All About The Bass
Also if you like reggae and or any of the artists they cover  
ChaChing : 3/21/2019 7:25 pm : link
Easy Star Dub Allstars are fantastic. Truly amazing covers of classics that you'd normally say "dont touch that song!" but every song is fantastic. Very stoner but fantastic productions & adaptations nonetheless

Dub Side of the Moon - full Dark Side reggae'd out, OK Computer - Radiohead (Paranoid Andriod is amazing, linked below). Looking now they did some Beatles, Thriller.. there's a ton if you search their name on Youtube

Radiohead - Paranoid Andriod

lots of good stuff to go through.

Anyway - here's one I like - not necessarily a great cover but mostly because I really like both the band and the song they covered.

This was "fantastic". Seriously, well done.
Not recent  
pjcas18 : 3/21/2019 9:05 pm : link
but if you like Motley Crue covers (their songs covered by others), there was a period of time where a lot of newer pop/punk bands covered on with the show one of my favorites and an older Crue song

Get up kids did the best IMO. Ataris was good too, but Get up kids better.


Get up Kids - On With the Show - ( New Window )
Leonard Cohen's

YES - great song

Sublime covers that I love (your fault for bringing them up!):

1. 5446 was my Number / Ball & Chain (Toots & the Maytals, the first half of the song is the cover)
2. Trenchtown Rock (Marley)
3. Steppin Razor (Peter Tosh - tho his might be better)
4. We're Only Gonna Die From Our Own Arrogance (Bad Religion)
Also two I found in order to play myself...

Valerie - Amy Winehouse (The Zutons...really good pop rock song, but I know nothing else by them. Still she takes it to this great loungy style. There's also an upbeat version of her song with Mark Ronson)

Thank You - Chris Cornell (Zeppelin. Awesome ballad that was simply done in another awesome way by a sick vocalist)
