Hello. Today i wanted to give to you some of my favorite cover songs. Some of them you may already know, some of them you may not. Anyways, here goes. Songs go in a random order.
1. Sepultura – Orgasmatron
Take a look at this great live version of Orgasmatron by Sepultura. Sepultura used to be my favorite band back in junior high and high school.
2. Dead Kennedys – Viva Las Vegas
Dead Kennedys don’t really need an introduction. Here you can listen the band covering the king.
3. Hatebreed – Boxed In
Some years ago Hatebreed released an album of cover songs. In my opinion ”Refuse/Resist” and ”Boxed In” were the best ones from that album.
4. Black Flag – Louie Louie
I think everyone has covered this song. Black Flag, Iggy Pop, Motorhead e.t.c. Personally my favorite one is from Black Flag
5. Godflesh – Messiah (Dub)
Well this ain’t exactly a cover. It’s actually a dub version of ”Messiah”, one of my favorite songs from Godflesh.
6. The Clash – I fought the Law
O.k, perhaps most people would pick the Dead Kennedys version, which is also great. Nevertheless i have to say that i really like this one from Clash.
7. Dj Krush & Toshinori Kondo
In this track Dj Krush collaborated with Jazz artist Toshinori Kondo to create one of the best cover songs you can ever find. Check it out.
8. Orange Goblin – We bite
Everybody likes the Misfits. Me too. Check out this great cover of ”We bite” by Orange Goblin.
9. Ignite – Sunday Bloody Sunday
I never really liked U2. Nevertheless i have to admit that i like this cover of ”Sunday Bloody Sunday” by Ignite.
10. The Real Mckenzies
This is a really old song. And in my opinion the Real Mckenzies did an excellent job covering this song.
