Eminem achieved most of his popularity in the early 21st century. But what if he started making hits back in medieval times? Beedle The Bardcore has the answer with this hour-long, 13th-century performance of Slim Shady’s greatest hits including Lose Yourself, Without Me, Stan, Smack That, and Ass Like That.
There’s been quite an uptick in musicians performing popular songs in a medieval style known as “Bardcore.” Algal the Bard shared this Bardcore version of the theme from The Mandalorian. It sounds great, but not all that different from Ludwig Göransson’s original, which incorporated some exotic sounds to begin with.
The bardcore genre has had quite the surge of popularity, with multiple musicians taking their cut at medieval cover versions of popular tracks. This trio of tracks from Constantine Bard envisions what Daft Punk might have sounded like in the 16th Century, and includes Get Lucky, One More Time, and Around the World.
