Coronavirus needs to fuck off so I can see these girls and guys live!
It was only in the later stages of last year that I realised that Billie Eilish had taken over the world, and if I had any doubts, they were gone once she won triple j's Hottest 100 with 'Bad Guy'. I can't deny it's a catchy tune, but as usual, I've found a better version, this time from the Spanish based band: Ankor.
When the cover is better than the original...
Over the years I've come across Leo Moracchioli on YouTube countless times, his Metal covers of popular songs are brilliant. The man is a massively talented musician and he will feature in this series as we go on, but today I want to share with you guys one of his best (in my opinion): Tones and I's 'Dance Monkey'.
A modern day classic cover.
Today's cover is a relatively new one, having only been played for the first time February 14th 2019, on the Australian alternative radio station triple j's segment Like A Version, where many future covers will come from. But today we're shining the spotlight on the powerful 'Bulls on Parade' by Denzel Curry.
In today's world, we need this cover more than ever.
I had completely forgotten about this song until the other day, when it randomly came on the radio and I had to stop what I was doing to just listen to it. Then I decided that Green Day's cover of John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero' had to be my next Awesome Covers track.
Today we welcome Stone Sour into our Awesome Covers series.
Stone Sour and Corey Taylor are known for their fondness of covers, the latter even does his own acoustic shows chocked full of them. So it should come as no surprise that Stone Sour added the iconic track 'Wicked Game', to their special edition release of Come What(ever) May.
