Since it's so very hard to spend any time on a computer without finding something fascinating on YouTube (or similar websites), I felt the urge to post one of the things that I find to be incredible as far as music videos go.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of classic rock. Obviously there is a whole new generation of people who had adopted this style of music as there own.
But when it comes to cover songs, most mucisians tend to be purists, feeling that an EXACT copy of an original song completely takes the 'art' from the music.

I can certainly understand that. However, I also feel that the level of accuracy in perfecting every detail of an original score is an art form in itself!
Some of the kids I've subscribed to (on YouTube) who have demonstrated their amazing talent to reproducing some of these rock classics are beyond incredible to me.

I'm sure that many here will already know some of the musicians that have posted some of their stuff on YouTube, but I'd just like to use this thread to give some big time props to any real quality cover that someone may want to post here. I'll start with two exceptional covers which I feel are done PERFECTLY!
:9:



These are of such good quality they would make GREAT karaoke songs! In fact I've belted out the lyrics to these tunes many times in recent months! :hihi:

ANYTHING Britney, or anyone that attempts in some way to replicate her music, in anyway, regardless of its nature = garbage!

Granted, the guy is good, but why not someone else, instead of garbage music?
I did post many other videos.. and that band does other songs too. I just did that one, for how crazy it was.

If it offends you so, you could skip it.

My friend's band does a charity gig for NIH (Children's Cancer) every year and they typically have a pretty well known headliner. A few years ago it was Ann Wilson (with her own band, no Nancy), she was jaw droppingly incredible. She did all the old Heart hits (and a few of the later ones) but she also did Zeppelin, Who and Yes covers....and there were only about 200 folks at the venue....
Yes, I do remember when she came to St Mary Parish to do a show at the Cypress Bayou casino a few years back. I wanted to go to that show and was planning to, but it had to be rescheduled. Somehow I had missed the reschedule date and sometime later I heard some people talking about how great her performance was. I hated to miss seeing/hearing her in a more intimate setting than most of the show venues where Heart performed. :cry:

That's too bad, if you ever get the chance to see her again, I highly recommend....

Take your pick...

Finnish bluegrass/hilbilly/polka cover band just tearing it up. Dudes are extremely talented.

Everything from Iron Maiden to Zeppelin, Panterra and many others. Weird Al would be proud.

No offense aimed at you, just the fact anyone (musician) would choose to do anything remotely associated with a Britney Spears song, is disturbing from a pure musical sense 😂.

A very entertaining group indeed! They have sort of a Molly Ringwalds/Chee Weez vibe about them.
They'd be fun to see perform live I'm sure.

Found this young lady because of this cover. While I never was a fan of the song, her version was mesmerizing.


You may want to check out her versions of songs by Metallica, Stevie Ray Vaughn, ZZ Top and many others, but I think this may be my favorite (her Freebird solo cover running second):

Liliac does a decent job on paranoid as well. They just don't give off that vamp bat vibe witch I absolutely hate/detest. Strange considering the name/origins of the band. Iron maidens really do maiden amazingly as well by the way.
