When Loudwire compiled its first list of 10 Non-Heavy Metal Songs Covered by Heavy Metal Bands, it quickly became apparent that there was an almost unlimited supply of potential examples at our disposal.

There's a long tradition in heavy metal of incorporating pop songs into albums filled with uncompromising sounds – the better to “soften the blow,” if you will, and help ease listeners into the musical maelstrom with something a little more familiar and/or easy to digest.

All of which made the prospect of compiling our "Another 10 Non-Heavy Metal Songs Covered by Heavy Metal Bands" impossible to resist and something tells us this won’t be the last list of its kind, either.
