I have a minor obsession with Shonen Knife.

Here's a couple of their best covers:

Just heard an amazing cover of Cum On Feel The Noize by Martin and Eliza Carthy's band, The Imagined Village, played on the Radcliffe & Maconie show on Radio 2. Loved it - and not even in an ironic way.

I heard that too, but hadn't heard who it was - it was great.

Good performance from Cilla, but who's on drums? You have to wonder what George Martin made of Ringo when he was used to playing like that.



Maybe he was glad to have a drummer who knew his place   :D

Ringo was still a big improvement on his predecessor!

He had to play that loud for the band to hear over Cilla.

Bingo! That's what I am, a saviour.
A sort of cocky version of Jesus.

I put that on the office stereo last week and got some very funny looks from my colleagues. Mind you, they also look at me like that if I put a bit of Brel on. Philistines.

Young folk think that it's 'The Streets' and they've taken a radical new direction.

Didn't you mean to type "did for" Bohemian Rhapsody?  :demon: ;)

You can't really make Bohemian Rhapsody any more ridiculous than it is already...

You Got The Love - Florence and the Machine
She's a Model - Terrorvision
Breadfan - Metallica (I know they get a mention in the other thread, but I like their cover of this over the original)
Last Caress/Green Hell - ditto (ditto)
In a Gadda-da-Vida - Slayer (from the Less Than Zero soundtrack)
Love Rollercoaster - RHCP

I always love it when someone performs a "cover", but also manages to male it their own as well.

An example is Ofra Haza's versions of Led Zep's KAshmir...

One is a slow very eastern version the other a much livelier one

Given Plant's fascination with this region, one wonders what a cooperative venture would have ended up like?
