Top 10 Genre Crossing Cover Songs

“Almost every band at some point of their career has covered a song by another band. The practice is so encouraged by record labels that it’s as common as the live album for taking money out of the pockets of fans. Some covers are amazing technical tributes, like Tool covering No Quarter by Led Zepplin, but most are horrible cash grabs, like No Doubt covering It’s My Life by Talk Talk. This top 10 list, though, takes a song, drags it across genres, and the music comes out the other end as an amazingly original entity. This list also includes the shock value of ‘I can’t believe how well the cover translated from the original.” w/ videos
