(NSFW: Language)ItsMetroGnome starts out playing a cover version of Dave Porter’s Breaking Bad theme song on his acoustic guitar, but quickly transitions into a wub-wub filled electronic remix, using samples from the show.
Pop a capella group Pentatonix vocalize Daft Punk’s robot rock, including Technologic, One More Time and Harder Better Faster Stronger. The medley is from their new album PTX Vol. 2. The dude with cornrows is a human subwoofer.
Puddles is a 7-foot-tall clown – with the voice of an angel. While we’re a bit perplexed by the concept, there’s no denying his musical talent, as he cranks out an awesome cover of Royals by Lorde – that dare we say it – bests the original.
(NSFW: Language)James Cochrane bought used toys and gadgets from thrift shops then hacked them to perform a cover of Thrift Shop. He tried to make the stuffed toys look like zombies, but Elmo ended up as something scarier.
Musician Michell Kwan plays a brilliant cover of Guns N’ Roses classic Sweet Child o’ Mine on her Guzheng – a traditional Chinese string instrument that dates back to the 5th century BC. We can almost hear Axl’s singing along.
Music instructor Aaron Okeefe lets some of his young students show off the skills he’s imparted in this impressive cover of Forty Six & 2 by Tool. As one YouTube commenter put it: “the drummer and bassist are just killing it!!!!!!!!”
You know a song has officially become a meme when marching bands start playing it during halftime. The Ohio University Marching 110 Band does their best rendition of Ylvis’ hilarious The Fox. Though it loses something without lyrics.
Our fingers always got all tangled up when trying to play Enter Sandman on Rock Band, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem for the musicians of Iron Horse, who gave the Metallica classic a shiny coat of Bluegrass paint.
Australia’s Triple J produces this series of cover versions of popular tunes remade by various musicians. It’s a great place to kill some time and discover new artists. Our favorite so far – Abbe May’ssultry cover of Ginuwine’s Pony.
An impressive and rousing a capella rendition of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Can’t Hold Us by The Sing-Off season three winners Pentatonix. Dare we say it, we might actually like it better than the original, and that’s a tall order.
We’ve heard numerous cool and unusual cover versions of Adele’s hit theme to Skyfall. But we’re going out on a limb and guess you’ve never heard it sung by a Russian military choir. Bonus points: Salute when the chorus kicks in.
Mustered Courage breathes new life into Seal’s hit track from… ehm… Batman Forever, and puts their own unique spin on it with a country twang, two acoustic guitars and a little banjo and mandolin on the side.
The latest guitar track from Acoustic Labs’ Greg Johnson is a brilliantly intense fingerstyle rendition of the familiar theme from Halo. Crank it up, close your eyes, and imagine waves of grunts, elites and jackals coming your way.
It seems as if everybody and their brother is doing a Daft Punk Get Luckycover these days, so it was only a matter of time before President Obama would get in on the action. Though we can’t say he carries a tune very well.
Vocalist Karen Marie and musicians Scott Bradlee, Adam Kubota, and Allan Mednard perform the Eddie Cooley and Otis Blackwell classic popularized by Peggy Lee in the style of a dozen favorite (and not so favorite) artists.
A live performance of Daft Punk’s Doin’ It Right, recorded with original sounds and projections, done in a single take by musician Jack Conte. Though he does have the help of a robot to play his QuNeo MIDI controller. Go BTS here.
PV Nova takes Daft Punk and Pharrell’s hit tune, and provides their interpretations of what the track might have sounded like if it had been recorded in different decades. Though we think the 1970s version should just be the original.
Rocker Julien Brasart cranks out another head-banging rendition of a classic theme song – the opening credits from The Simpsons. To be honest, we wouldn’t mind if FOX went with Julien’s version to freshen things up.
An unusual, down home cover of Daft Punk’s hit track, performed on banjo by musician Charles Butler. No he didn’t call it Get Plucky – we made that up all on our own. That’s why they pay us the big bucks.
YouTuber gundersonmunderson uploaded this video to share his SEGA Genesis-style intro for Drive. But the real star here is the chiptune version of A Real Hero, which he made using an emulator of the SEGA Genesis’ sound chip.
Erock returns with another rockin’ arrangement, this time shredding The King of Pop’s classics Smooth Criminal and Beat It on his electric guitar. We’re betting he couldn’t play as fast wearing a sequined glove though.
A nifty popped-up cover version of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky by musician George Barnett, which we dare say, is as good, or maybe even better than the original. Of course, George can’t take his show on the road without cloning himself.
