Quantcast

Fellow "Rock Father" and long goatee enthusiast Leo Moracchioli can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. The owner of Norway's Frog Leap Studios continues to crank out the creatively-crafted metal covers and accompanying videos each week, and this week he's come upon something very important to me... The Muppet Show. Heard at the beginning of The Muppet Show during its original run from 1976-1981, The Muppet Show Theme Song is an iconic piece of the Jim Henson legacy, and 40+ years later it's still finding new life. While Ok Go's version might be the most famous cover thus far, Leo's version brings the heavy to the scene. Watch the video and crank it up!

As a new trailer was recently released for 2018's refreshed take on the TOMB RAIDER franchise, many were curious not about the visuals - but about the song. Continuing a trend of slowed-down, haunting versions of famous pop songs in trailers and commercials (and it's a growing list), this time around it's "Survivor," the 2001 hit by DESTINY'S CHILD getting the re-working. With the socials lighting up to locate the artist, we now have the answer: 2WEI. The German duo is responsible for the music heard in many movies, trailers and commercials, and their cover of "Survivor" is just the latest to gain attention. Stream the track and see the new trailer below, then look for 2WEI's version to hit Spotify very soon... They say it's Beyonce-approved!"

Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs is back with a new video, and this time he's putting a metallic spin on ten pop songs. "10 Songs in the Style of METALLICA" pairs Vincent with guitarist EROCK for a quick blast of what some famous tunes would've sounded like, had they been penned by James Hetfield and Co. So who gets the 'Tallica treatment? Taylor Swift, Outkast, Alanis Morissette, Abba, Toni Braxton, Britney Spears, Nickelback, Seal, Juvenile and Darude are on-deck. Check this out...

After decades of calling William Patrick Corgan "Billy" Corgan, it feels weird to type the man's full name. At the same time, I get it - much in the same way that I'm "James" and get weirded out when people call me "Jimmy" or "Jim," especially people I don't really know. Naming conventions aside, today we've got something unexpected from Corgan in the form of an acoustic performance of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" from the Cover Room on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. As far as I know, this is only the second Cover Room performance, with Kesha dropping by for "House of the Rising Sun" over the summer - a performance that's pretty much been erased from the internet, with the video being pulled from YouTube. Check out "Wrecking Ball" below...

Industrial rockers Neon Coven released their debut EP, Risen, earlier this year via New Ocean Media, and now they're back with a fresh take on the Depeche Mode classic,Never Let Me Down Again”. It's a song that's certainly been covered by a few artists in the past, but Neon Coven have done well with it, and I dig it. Check it out below...

On August 24, 2017, Taylor Swift unleashed "Look What You Made Me Do," the divisive first single from her forthcoming album, Reputation (out November 10 via Big Machine Records). Three days later, the music video arrived, and somewhat surprisingly, the cover versions did, too. In the age of YouTube & Spotify, there's a cottage industry for artists that have made names for themselves based on well-produced cover versions - not sound-alike knockoffs, but unique takes on popular music that have gained steam in recent years. What's incredible is the quick turnaround on these - not just learning someone else's song in a matter of days, but also deconstructing it, rebuilding it, recording it, getting the mixing/mastering done, and in some cases shooting a video for it all in under a week. For Swift's single, one of the most impressive versions arrived just a week later (August 31) via Scott Bradlee's Post Modern Jukebox, followed by the September 12 release of Our Last Night's rocked-up version. In just under two months, there have been dozens of covers that have arrived, and another great one hit this weekend via Frog Leap Studios and Leo Moracchioli. Check out five versions below of what may be 2017's most-covered new song, "Look What You Made Me Do."
