Maybe this thread will go somewhere, maybe it won't. I'll start with this example of an early 90s Metallica song covered by a bluegrass band.

Great idea!

Here is an old, often referred to one, Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" done by the four cellists of Apocolyptica.

Not that I dislike the original but this really becomes such a beautiful song when you remove James Hetfield's growly voice.
I think even JohnK would approve.

Nothing Else Matters

Here's the same bluegrass band, Iron Horse, covering Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O' Mine

It works much better than Enter Sandman.

Been a fan of Luther Wright and The Wrong's "Rebuild The Wall" album which is a alt country/bluegrass rendition of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album.

You can likely find the whole thing on YouTube. Here's Young Lust - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7QJ48vQGMg

The difference in styles is not as dramatic as the examples given so far, but I've always enjoyed the Hindu Love Gods album. The band equation is:

Hindu Love Gods = R.E.M. - Michael Stipe + Warren Zevon.

Here's their blues rock cover of Raspberry Beret.

Had to play this for Mrs. Classic, who immediately picked up her mandolin and figured it out pretty quickly. Then hopped on iTunes and purchased it, then sent the link to our niece who plays banjo. We may be taking this "Down South" thing a bit too far...

We have found THIS place and one of the bands I saw on a Tuesday (Bluegrass night) did several covers including Pink Floyd's "Time" - and it worked!

I have to pitch in on this one...

If you thought Kraftwerk could not brilliantly be recreated on acoustic guitar, you must listen to this . It stands on it's own even if you didn't know it was a Kraftwerk song. Of course, since I LOVE Kraftwerk, it gives me extra goosebumps! grin

Initially disappointed.....
This has nothing to do with Kraft Dinner

Then Intrigued.....
Kinda cool music. I'm not a big electronica guy but now I need some Kraftwerk to try out on the Axioms

Currently happy....
Just cause Mary is posting again!

This next link doesn't actually fit with the theme since it's a style of music typically only played on one instrument being played on another instrument.

I bring you an entire album of Debashish Bhattacharya playing Indian sitar music on the Hawaiian slide guitar. It's great to listen to while you work. (Yes, I'm actually working.)

At least no one said, "Hey, that's a Coldplay song!" eek Coldplay used the melody of "Computer Love" in their song, "Talk". Of course, "Computer Love" is a MUCH cooler song! grin

Another one that's not a different style, just a different instrument.

We just heard Paul Anka covering Oasis (Murph, I think that means it would pass SoCan requirements, right?)

I think Paul Anka is automatically exempt because SoCan rules don't cover the undead.

Actually to be fair, I just wikied him and he is not as old as I thought he was.

Nothing Else Matters

Here I am on my day off and OK....in one post I am going to reveal my "Old Fartness" and the fact that I have not been here lately.

I am blown away by Apocolyptica - I had never heard of them until I pulled up this thread. I have now been surfing Youtube for the past hour. Even my wife came upstairs to check it out.

I don't have a video but this thread puts me in mind of seeing my daughters sing "Dirty Deeds" while playing acoustic guitar. I get a smile everytime I hear AC DC now.

That's cute, but when they start playing the Sid Vicious version of Sinatra's "I Did it My Way," I'd get very nervous.

I found this enjoyable-
The Doors:Hello, I Love You performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra

DECCA recording:467350

Directed by Peter Scholes
This is actually a collection of Doors music arranged for full orchestra.

Well worth a listen!

I still think that Orgy's grunge version of Blue Monday is far better than the original New Order version. but that is just me.

Ra's cover of Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic is a hard rock take on a classic by The Police. I like it better than the original:
