    Default Famous Bands Doing Doing unlikely covers!

    Was searching around on youtube today after I heard a cover of Elton John performing Blueberry hill, and I discovered a bootleg recording of Led Zeppelin covering Blueberry hill and thought it was pretty great so I decided to share it and create this thread for everyone to post those unlikely covers of songs by bands you would not think to cover that style or genre.

    Robert Plant's range is pretty good here.

    Here is the the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J54NapjjbZY
    sorry tried to post the video image with it but I am on my 3rd glass of vino : )

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    See, I don't think Disturbed are an unlikely choice to cover Land Of Confusion seeing as all those bands like Korn and Disturbed and Marilyn Manson have a trend of covering 80s songs. It's just what they do when they've released enough of their own songs.
    It's the reverse of boy/girl "bands" having to release cover songs as their first 6 singles.

    Many times, bands do covers of song and artists that were influential in their early lives or careers. Blueberry Hill would be an excellent example of what Elton John and Zeppelin would have been influenced by....along with a ton of other early American rock and Blues. I can't even list all the classic Johnny Cash songs that have been covered by all types of modern rock and punk bands. Johnny Cash even covered some modern rock songs on his last albums. Bob Dylan is another one thats had a ton of stuff covered by all types. Guns-N-Roses got a huge amount of airplay with. " Knockin On Heaven's Door". Then there's also a whole series of "Pickin' On" Bluegrass covers of AC/DC, Zeppelin and other rock bands.

    Yes, they do.
    That'll be why Roxy Music covered "Jealous Guy" when John Lennon was shot and bands such as Senser from England covered a selection of hip hop tracks (such as L L Cool J's 'Mama Said Knock You Out' and Public Enemy's (She Watch) Channel Zero) for a homage CD)

    Johnny Cash even covered some modern rock songs on his last albums.
    Including a cover of Nine Inch Nail's 'Hurt' that a lot of people think Cash wrote.

    I think my All-Time favorite was when I heard the Lawrence Welk Orchestra do a cover of CCR's "Lookin Out My Back Door" on the Lawrence Welk Show, LOL.

    This was actually a popular song for them when they were young and at least somewhat relevant, so it doesn't seem weird to me.
