Cover versions of songs have the ability to transcend genres and generations. Whether a musician wants to pay homage to an artist they admire, or someone wants to go wild by doing a completely different rendition of a classic, we're all about it. 

Many musicians cover tracks during their live shows or even throw them on an album. Sometimes, though, those covers really take off and people forget who actually performed the original version.
