So the flaming lips have done a "Sgt peppers lonely hearts club band" cover album called with a little help from my fwends.

It's hard to decide how I feel about it after listening, it's certainly not an atrocious album but it just seems wrong to cover an album that was already so perfect.

Oh man, Eluveitie! Folk metal is delightful; there's a ton of it, and a lot of variety within the genre. So it goes with metal, generally. Ensiferum is also a pretty solid folk metal band:

Not everybody's idea of metal but I love me some Birthday Massacre, adding 80's covers to the mix is just the best route to fun.

I heard this version before I heard the original... But in my opinion it kinda walks all over it. Also their cover of Snowblind by Black Sabbath is great.

Also, this cover's pretty decent


ETA: There's also a Relient K cover of this, but somehow, I prefer the above one. Even though it doesn't sound quite as....well-produced?

I'd be remiss if I didn't link some of my favorite classical music metal covers. And a metal leekspin. Surely someone remembers leekspin. It was originally a Finnish folk song, so it makes sense that a Finnish band would perform it. Also, and feel free to mock me, an acapella metal cover of The Final Countdown. Pretty much every part of that seems worth mocking...yet I still enjoy it.

(I swear the first song picks up eventually. 3 min in.)

Remember that I said that I like cover versions, well this is a smart version.

Is being used as as part of a channel advert.

Another cover, one of my favourites (inspired by the release of the "art of McCartney" album today).

Default On "Celty-y" music, something I've noticed along the way...

I dunno if it has something to do with the breadth or scale or scope of the Irish Diaspora; but, for anything with an even vaguely Irish flavor, it can generally find a somewhat comfortable local niche. To where a lot of these bands, I'm sure, are fairly successful commercially-speaking, even if there are many more potential listeners that have never even heard of them.

E.g., when I was in school, this one band we'd always go to see wherever the were playing, especially around St. Patrick's:

"Forty Shades of Blue"- Black 47

Always a great time, fantastic shows in small(ish), more intimate venues (literally, a bar, packed to the gills). Weirdly, outside of NYC or the Capital District/Hudson Valley, you talk to people who you'd otherwise think would be into it and it's like they've never even heard of them!?

Similarly, these other guys are huge all around New England. But I wonder how many of the rest of you are more familiar with the rest of their songs, aside from this more recognizable cover:

Finnegan's Wake - DropKick Murphys

My favourite singer is coming out with a new album with his longtime backup band, The Dukes. I'm super stoked.

Check it out, LeoGibson!
