When Hard Rock Does Pop


Recommended Posts

I was listening to Talisman today and then got to thinking about what were the best hard rock band covers of pop songs (not rock songs, but pure manufactured pop). Like this one that was a Madonna song:

What are other good covers of pure pop songs in our genre? Again, not rock songs of which there are many covers. I'm talking pure pop songs.

Def Leppard done a whole album with some pop covers e.g. Blondie Hanging On The Telephone

Yep, killer cover and it was preceded by this equally killer cover

"Northern Kings" have two albums that are Pop/Operatic Metal covers.

Some work, some don't. 

I think these ones work.

I've saved the best for last. The cover of Lionel Richie's "Hello" is a little gem and easily the best track from either album.
