I am a big fan of cover songs. When they are done right.

Some bands that's how they get their big break. Some cover songs are really bad but most that is done is pretty good. Hearing songs that were popular once but with a different sound and beat but still having it be their own makes a great cover.

Here are just a few of my favorites that are on my playlist. Now obviously there are a ton of good ones out there. These are just some good ones to rock out to with the windows down while driving or even working in the yard. Enjoy

1. Rage Against the Machine- Renegades of Funk

Originally done by Afrika Bambaataa in the 1980s. Rage brings the hard-hitting guitar riffs that put this as an all-time great cover.

2. Fear Factory- CARS

The one hit wonder from the 80's that was done by Gary Neuman has a great hook that Fear Factory rocks it out.

3. Bad Wolves- Zombie

Can't have a list like this one without having this song on here. One of the biggest hits in 2018 Bad Wolves does this song justice. Had a huge crush on Deloris O'Riordan of the Cranberries back in the day.

4.Seether- Careless Whisper

Another great song from the '80s that was redone and was a huge hit for Seether.

5.I Prevail- Blank Space

These guys turned a pop song by Taylor Swift into a breakthrough song for the band I Prevail. Sorry but this song by these guys just kicks ass.
