Look…we get it. Whenever we catch wind of someone covering a beloved classic rock tune, we get nervous, too. Why mess with a good thing, right?
However, we’ve noticed as of late that a number of bands or pop stars have put their own take on a number of beloved classic rock songs, and you know what? They’re all pretty great! (Plus, if this is a way to introduce an iconic catalog to the younger generation, we’re all for it!)
Take a listen to these recent four covers of some of classic rock’s biggest hits!
Foo Fighters – “Let There Be Rock” (AC/DC)
Anyone who’s familiar with the Foo Fighters knows how much they respect those who’ve paved the way before them, and their cover of this AC/DC classic has just as much grit as the original.
