Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul) – Scenario (ATCQ cover)

One of my favorite new hip hop groups covering one of my favorite old hip hop groups.  The song actually isn’t that cool, it’s the thought that counts though.

A$AP Rocky – Pumped Up Kicks (Cover)

A$AP doesn’t know the lyrics, neither do I, but it’s a jam.  A$AP Rocky sorta covers Foster the People’s “Pumped up kicks“.

Zwan – Number of the Beast

Cool cover of the classic Iron Maiden song by Billy Corgan’s (of the Smashing Pumpkins) group Zwan.  First learned about this song from the opening credits (see the video) of Spun, which is a great movie.   Off Spun (Soundtrack) (2002).

Miley Cyrus – “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go”

I can safely say I never thought I would post a Miley Cyrus tune, but here we are.  For some reason, I seem to be posting a lot of covers lately, but this one straight blew my mind – my buddy played it for me and let me take infinite guesses at who was covering the Bob Dylan song “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” (off his 1975 album Blood on the Tracks), and I never got close.  Definitely a different side of Ms. Montana.  This song is out on the 2012 compilation CD Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International – pick up a copy if you’re a Dylan fan and want to support a good cause.

Epic as shit.  On the 2003 live album Concert for George (Original Soundtrack) .
