Kristobaldude’s List of Unexpected Metal Covers

Posted by kristobaldude on April 1, 2014

Hi Folks,

This here is going to be a compilation of songs that I think could be covered on an album (Metallica-style), that are either not widely known and haven’t been beaten to death (overplayed). Since I play metal guitar these are songs I would like to learn to perform live in a metal style. Note, some of them probably will be over-covered songs because they are just so great, like Eleanor Rigby and Journey’s Separate Ways.

Also, this won’t be the only post. This will be the first one, comments are welcomed as well as suggestions. Any other songs I think of after this post will be linked by the tag #unexpected-metal. Well then, without further ado, here is the list so far:

Beatles – Beatles – Eleanor Rigby
Beatles – Helter Skelter
Beatles – I Want You
Journey – Separate Ways
Ray Davies – I’m Not Like Everybody Else [Chocolate Watch Band]
Judas Priest – Green Manalishi
Chris Deburgh – Don’t Pay The Ferryman
Yardbirds – Psychotic Reaction
Dead Kennedys – Too Drunk To Fuck
Uriah Heep – Easy Living
Wham – Careless Whisper
Yardbirds – Heart Full Of Soul
Harry Nilsson – One (Is The Loneliest Number) [3 Dog Night]
Deep Purple – Storm Bringer
Deep Purple – Sweet Child In Time

Procol Harum – A Whiter Shade of Pale

Osmonds – Crazy Horses [Blockbusters]

(Note: There are probably a bunch more Monkees songs that could be metal sleepers!)
