So, ever heard an awesome metal cover of a pop song? If you have post it here! I've heard many great metal covers of pop songs, but Steel Panther's cover of the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" definitely has to take the top spot.Other great covers include Halestorm's cover of "Bad Romance", Emerald Sun's cover of "Holding Out For A Hero", and Children Of Bodom's cover of "Oops, I Did It Again".

Children Of Bodom's cover of "Oops, I Did It Again".

That's funny because of what it is, but it's shit.

And of course, if you count Beatles as pop (which they are), then basically everyone has covered them.

Since You've Been Gone

Not sure I'd qualify "chart hit for a rock band" as pop.

Or A Day To Remember as metal, for that matter :lol:

I think there was a pop song with the same title as the Rainbow song.

Yeah, it's Since U Been Gone...a Kelly Clarkson song.

Also, I absolutely love when metal bands go outside of their respective genres for covers.

Yup. Doubt they even know who Rainbow are. :tongue:

Me too, so long as it was a good song to begin with.

I've no time for covering a shitty pop song just to be funny or ironic.

Yea I know a lot of people don't like that cover, but I got to admit it does have a great chorus hook and if you just crank up the overdrive on the guitar and get rid of the keyboards (like Bodom did), it makes it a pleasurable listen for me.
