How Awesome would it be if X covered Y?

Postby Seda » Tue Jun 15, 2010 3:47 am UTC

I got the idea after listening to Les Claypool and his fearless flying frog brigade positively nail Pink Floyd's Animals. Pick one classic album, and if you could have one band cover it, in its entirety, who would you choose?

For starters,

The Mars Volta doing King Crimson's In the Court of the Crimson King
Isis doing Rush's Moving Pictures, most notably Witch Hunt
Electric Wizard doing Master of Illusions
High on Fire doing Kill 'em All
Mastodon doing Ride the Lightning

Any more ideas?
Aum

Daft Punk remixing (in the style of any of their live remixes) any myriad of old Tangerine Dream (Force Majeure, Ricochet, Phaedra).

Well, a shit-smeared Van Gogh could make for an interesting avant garde/postmodern piece, I guess. Anyway, I'm not trying to desecrate the Beach Boys or anything. I've heard Animal Collective/Panda Bear compared to The Beach Boys (I don't see the similarities, really...) so much that I think it would be interesting to hear AC cover something by the Beach Boys. Good or bad, it would be interesting...though I don't think Animal Collective is bad at all, and think they'd do a pretty good job of making a passable Pet Sounds cover album.

How Awesome would it be if Peter Gabriel covering David Bowie, Lou Reed, Arcade Fire, Regina Spektor, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, Neil Young, and Radiohead?

Answer: Not as awesome as your every hope was.

Dream theater covering... Anything, really. More of them covering Iron Maiden/Led Zeppelin/Metallica (Though they've pretty thoroughly covered the golden albums of that last one xD)

Modest Mouse doing Holiday in Cambodia or California Uber Alles by Dead Kennedys. I dunno why, I just think Isaac's voice would sound pretty sweet doing those songs.
To do list:

-kidnap Randall
-take his hands
-hire Eames from Inception
-make nachos

The White Stripes (or Raconteurs) should cover Led Zeppelin's first or third album. I could totally hear Jack White doing some of Zep's acoustic stuff.

The AV club has basically tried to bring this idea to life. My favorite is Coheed and Cambria covering the The Smiths.

Are you implying that Post-Rogers Pink Floyd and Sigur Ros are different?

White Stripes covering Loveless.

I don't think Jack White has the anal perfectionism to do it properly though. Does anyone?
