File this one under ‘covers I thought I would never ever see in my lifetime’.
Rick Astley, he of the classic 80’s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” and subsequent ludicrous online phenomenon of being “Rick rolled”, tackled the AC/DC classic “Highway to Hell” during a recent gig. Don’t believe me? Click below and see for yourself.
As for most ridiculous cover, my favorite remains Tom Jones re-doing the Lenny Kravitz classic “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” (and I LOVE it!), with anything from the William Shatner catalog coming in second.
Thoughts? What’s the most ridiculous cover tune you’ve ever seen or heard?
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
