7 Crazy Classic Cover Songs

Paul Anka does Nirvanas Smells Like Teen Spirit.



Motion Device does Black Sabbaths War Pigs.


Barbara Eden does Blood, Sweat & Tears Spinning Wheel.



Richard Thompson does Britney Spears Oops! I Did It Again.



The Cleverlys do The Bangles Walk Like an Egyptian.


Pacifika does Chicagos 25 or 6 to 4.


Vietnamese musicians play the hell out of an American Cowboy Classic, Ghost Riders in the Sky.


Odd renditions of popular songs. Definitely not mainstream music.

    I liked the renditions of `Walk Like An Egyptian`, and `Ghost Riders In The Sky`- the others, not so much- and the singing on that rendition of `War Pigs` was absolutely terrible.

    There should be more of this. Even Britney`s song became cool. Paul Anka the best for me.

    @Naz14

    It sure sounds like a theremin, doesn`t it? It`s actually called a Dan Bau, a traditional Vietnamese instrument that has one string (although you usually can`t see it depending on how the light hits it).

    This lady sounds like the Hendrix of the dan bau. Love those ghostly neighing sounds, perfect for the song.

    I`d love to watch this, but my poor old netbox can`t cache that many clips, so it locks up and I have to restart.

    What about Johnny Cash doing Nine Inch Nails`s "Hurt"? See, it works sometimes.
