    Pretty self explanatory. Could be covers by professional artists or just people on YouTube. Doesn't matter, just post.

    I'll start with Yuna's AMAZING cover of Come As You Are by Nirvana:

    Tarja's voice adds so much energy and zing to the song. Simply amazing!

    Johnny Cash didn't just cover this song, he stole it and made it his.

    The majority of mine will be "youtube artists" covering songs. I'm limiting myself to 2 per post, otherwise this post would be fucking huge.

    Boyce Avenue covering It Will Rain (Bruno Mars)

    Clara C covering I Won't Give Up (Jason Mraz)

    I'm probably the only person that wasn't a fan of the Johnny Cash cover.

    Nope! As much as I love Johnny Cash, I honestly don't really like his cover much.

    Same here. Partly because so many Cash simply forget that T-Rez wrote and originally performed the song

    I don't even like the original Hurt that much.


    This guy is nuts. Makes songs with just his voice.

    Oh, and is it just me or are Linkin Park songs extremely hard to cover?
