    Came across this remix of Gangnam Style, and was totally blown away by how good it was. Now this is how I prefer my million YouTube views pop song :lol:

    And this reminded me of this gem of a remix too:




    Anybody got any favorites?

    I usually abhor these because they essentially undermine the whole feel of the pop song in question, but the Gangnam style "remix" was actually pretty sweet!

    That Gangnam style was actually surprisingly enjoyable. I'm partial to this one, myself:



    And this one as well:



    And one more, from my favorite album of theirs:

    Pretty cool thread. I hadn't heard most of the ones people posted before.

    If you guys like that sort of thing, a couple of months ago I tentatively finished a Spotify playlist that is all metal covers of other songs. Most of them are pop or 80s songs, but there are some exceptions.

    :worship::worship::worship::worship:

    This is still, in my humble opinion, the greatest pop to metal cover EVER. I wish whoever assembled this had a band, or they probably do.. Anyone have any info on this?

    I also always enjoyed this dude - here's his skyrim song \m/

    Of course, Pellek doing a cover is even better. This song by Bruno Mars sounds like it always was intended to be a metal song:

    Compliments of Bill Hudson (Circle II Circle), Bruno Agra (ex-Revolution Renaissance) and Mike Gremio (ex-Cellador).

    Hey guys, I think you're off-point on this one. I'm not talking 'covers' of pop songs, I'm talking about 'remixes'. Like the ones I posted (i.e. original vocal tracks, music redone)


    THIS is spot-on!! Love it! But I think the Katy Perry is better :p
