R&P: Can you post some bizarre covers of Classic Rock songs?

Cover songs have been a staple since the earliest days of rock and roll. The earliest Beatles albums had nearly as many covers as original tracks. An artist will put their unique spin on their version, sometimes straying far from the original.

"In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Pat Boone is perhaps among the most mocked albums of all time.

"Enter Sandman"

Your turn...and the cover does not have to be by an established artist.

    I dunno which is more bizarre? Him doin it in 20 different styles. Or him goin full on RAMMSTEIN on it? Either way gotta hand it to the guy for being creative.

    Tiny Tim's cover of AC/DC's Highway To Hell is not as bad as I thought it would be. His version of Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven is another strange one. However, his cover of Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) could've been his because his voice fits the song.

    This was actually really cool.

    Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush interpreted by Placebo. The video was great and it came off kinda gothic.

    Dusty Springfield's cover of Classic IV's Spooky. She was calling her boyfriend spooky even though the original song was about a spooky little girl who first said no to a date and then changed her mind. She admits that she changed her mind but still calls him spooky.

    Kate Bush's cover of Elton John's Rocket Man. She did not change the gender of the protagonist so she was singing as though she was the man and was referring to a wife before same sex marriage ever happened.

    One that is pretty strange is The Cure’s cover of Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” from the Stone Free Tribute to Hendrix album.
