Cover Songs- Tributes To The Classics

FLUNK gets an "A+"!

A good cover pays homage to a great song and the band that originally made it a hit. It is a tribute and a show of appreciation. It demonstrates that a classic song can stand the test of time.

To be successful, the artist covering the song has to put their own spin on it and not simply recreate a note for note replica just to boost their own image or pad music sales. When they can successfully change the instrumentation or arrangement, giving the song new life and meaning, it transcends its former limits!


"Blue Monday"- Flunk

"Somebody Got Murdered"- Matthew Ryan

"Stop Me"- Mark Ronson

"Rebel Yell"- Mr. Badwrench

"Enjoy the Silence"- Lacuna Coil
