CAIRO – 24 August 2017: Someone has probably made a cover for one of your favorite songs whatever it is, unless you are a fan of some really obscure type of music, but some covers are really innovative and deserve to be given as much a chance as the original song, so here are five covers that sounded very unique in their own way.
1- ‘Creep’ by Radiohead and its Postmodern Jukebox cover

Radiohead are most known for their hit ‘Creep’ which made them famous when it came out in 1993. The song is famous for its calm rhythm which is interrupted by an anxious guitar melody to embody the agony of a depressed lover, but imagine a version of ‘Creep’ made in the 50s…
2- ‘Losing My Religion’ by R.E.M. and its Lacuna Coil cover

This song and its clip are just amazing, dreamy and philosophical in ways, but what about a hardcore rock version of it?
