The Best U2 Covers?
« on: October 11, 2009, 02:35:53 PM »
I figured we could have a thread to link us to videos of bands performing covers of U2's songs. Good or bad.  :D

Here's The Pet Shop Boys doing "Streets". I like this cover, but I'm sure not everyone agrees with me.  :D

There's P.O.D. doing "Bullet".

They also have an album version of it. Decent, though some lyrics are changed to make it more "Christian", even though it already kinda was...

...I only discovered her work a week or so ago; it's still hard to imagine that voice coming out of her.

Japanese-American, actually :)

She's more famous in Japan, but she's a native New Yorker and her native language is English.
