  • E.

  • M originally by Glen Campbell I Am a lineman for the County R E M became huge stars in the college rock circuit with their lyrically powerful take on alternative rock.

  • Which Wichita lineman, however, is a country hit written by Jimmy Webb about the Working man, which was quite a departure for the band.

  • Since much of our EMS music on Monster has allowed rock energy, they're quiet approach toe Web song is the most surprising part.

  • Thanks, said the tracks exploration of a man's desires and struggles is a great match.

  • The stories they were telling at the time, with Michael Stipe's intimate vocals RM gave Wichita Lineman and update even Glen Campbell could enjoy it.

  • Number nine says Studio by Old Dirty Bastard, originally by Phil Collins.

  • In 2001 there was enough demand from the hip hop community to make an entire album of Phil Collins covers.

  • Jim, it should be yours to me.

  • Answer me.

  • Give me the mic to watch.

  • Taken who would?

  • Despite his major stylistic differences from Collins, old Dirty Bastard tackles a studio with a surprisingly smooth tone while I was thinking about stopping his finger on the truck and you know kids have rather than a straightforward cover.

  • O.

  • D.

  • B creates an entirely new rap, while another vocalist reinterprets the chorus to fit the times.

  • Even the primitive vocoder sounds of the era helped transition the upbeat dance track into the world of hip hop.

  • Get down with the 000 D.

  • B is certainly going wild.

  • With his boasting lyrics, he pulls back just enough to avoid feeling out of place on sis Studio number eight Faith by Limp Biscuit, originally by George Michael.

  • Well, I guess it would be nice.

  • E could touch about it.

  • For their debut album, Limp Biscuit decided to expand the possibilities of new metal by covering George Michael's Faith E something baby So E Because I Gotta have faith.

  • Theme band stripped their sound down to rhythmic guitars while Fred Durst offered surprisingly soft vocals.

  • This changed in the chorus, however, where Durst howled out every repetition of faith painfully while the guitars got equally grimy Rock Thea Ending was particularly harsh as Fred groaned so hard it sounded like he coughed from it.

  • Their version, however, has amassed over 22 million views on YouTube.

  • Pretty good for a counterfeit, though it couldn't sound farther from the original track.

  • Faith was the only single on Limp Biscuits debut to chart number seven.

  • Always on My Mind by Pet Shop Boys Pop standard toe honor Elvis's Legacy.

  • On a live tribute show, Pet Shop Boys brought their synths styling to a dance version of Always on My Mind.

  • Their take was so well received that the duo recorded it and quickly had a hit.

  • Though the song had been covered endlessly since its release, it had rarely ventured outside of conventional pop and country pet shop boys.

  • Additional harmonies and Elektronik undercurrents also helped the song feel less cookie cutter than other renditions.

  • As strange as it was for pet Shop boys to approach always on my mind, they completely reinvented it.

  • Number six Pride in the Name of Love by Cla Villas and Cole, originally by YouTube After gaining fame through party hits Like Gonna Make You Sweat, covering YouTube was an unexpected move for the brains behind C and C music factory.

  • Credited to claw villas and coal, the duo had the added challenge of remixing pride as a techno track rather than just adding a dance beat.

  • The songs tempo and industrial drums gave the original a futuristic edge, but their use of original vocal melodies and guitar tracks worked surprisingly well.

  • Considering the change of pace, Theo Cover even managed to move over halfway up the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the time.

  • Despite it's heavy subject matter number five My Way by Sid Vicious, popularized by Frank Sinatra, Sid Vicious usually critiques culture through actions, but his version of my way focuses on the music itself.

  • Vicious spends an entire verse, putting on a voice to mock the nature of Frank Sinatra's original Sit also makes tons of silly faces and poses during the live version in The Great Rock n Roll Swindle.

  • No wow!

  • But when the drums and guitars kick in, the song turns into a gritty punk rock cover that could start a mosh pit.

  • Vicious even adds a line about killing a cat, both parodying and updating.

  • My way sits Cover is a lot to take in All right, Number four Africa by Weezer, originally by Toto.

  • It took a lot of tweeting, but a 14 year old Wheezer fan convinced the band to cover Toto's hit song Africa.

  • While Rivers, Cuomo and Company stayed pretty faithful to the original track.

  • They gave the synthesizers and drums allowed update.

  • Weezer gave their own spin to the keyboard solo and then brought Weird Al in his accordion out for good measure.

  • Thats wasn't just a live one off, either.

  • They even released The cover is a single.

  • Instead of using a band photo, however, Weezer framed the incendiary tweets as their artwork.

  • Does he make you fat?

  • Number three The Sound of Silence by disturbed originally by Simon and Garfunkel.

  • Oh, with decades of screaming and thrashing behind them, Disturbed took a soft turn when they re made a Simon and Garfunkel classic.

  • Hello, Hello, Darkness, my friend.

  • Though their cover of The Sound of Silence was undoubtedly louder, disturbed never went into all out.

  • Rock singer David Draymond instead used his commanding shouts to make the songs climax more intense with pounding drums and an orchestra.

  • The band also gave the track an epic feeling without dishonoring what it stands for.

  • Along with praise from Paul Simon, the cover has remained the band's highest performing single on the Billboard Hot 100 while unexpected, disturbed showed their tender side on the sound of Silence.

  • Number two.

  • I Can't Get No Satisfaction by Devo, originally by the Rolling Stones.

  • Mhm the rift to the Rolling Stones.

  • Satisfaction was so iconic that Devo cut it out when they remade the song and replace the main hooks with angular melodies and off kilter takes of the old vocals.

  • If that wasn't robotic enough, the percussion popped with funky symbols and a mechanical repetition can't get no, no, no.

  • Mark Mothersbaugh is quirky.

  • Delivery was all part of DeVos method of using a universally known song and deconstructing it.

  • Though it was weird enough that DeVos label worried Mick Jagger wouldn't approve, Mick was reportedly dancing by the end of his first listen.

  • Turning satisfaction upside down was a risk that paid off amazingly, for Devo.

  • Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

  • Stairway to Heaven by Dolly Parton, originally by Led Zeppelin and She Buying Way I Heard It through the Grapevine by the slits popularized by Gladys Knight and Marvin Gaye.

  • Number one Hurt by Johnny Cash, originally by Nine Inch Nails.

  • I hurt myself today.

  • When Trent Reznor heard Johnny Cash wanted to cover hurt, he thought the idea was a cheap gimmick until could have.

  • Cash, however, stripped the song down to guitar, piano and vocals to focus on the lyrics.

  • I focus on the thing Johnny's vocals air rugged and almost seemed to fall apart at times as he fleshes out how sad this story is.

  • Each chorus is heartbreaking is cash ramps up the intensity of his arrangements.

  • I will make you Yeah, Mark Romanek video for the track not only reflects on Johnny's entire career, but also just how fitting the words have become to him personally.
