Another Bonnaroo has come and gone and all we have to remember it by are the videos. The advantage of a mandatory camping fest is that people don’t upload their unlistenable five-pixel cell phone videos until after the end, so most of the videos that hit YouTube this weekend were professionally filmed. Lots of covers performed. Here’s a roundup of some of the best. Julia Nune’s medley of songs she hates is a must-see.
Norah Jones – Strangers (The Kinks cover)
Dave Matthews Band – The Needle and the Damage Done (Neil Young cover)
Dave Matthews Band – All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan cover)
Julia Nunes – Don’t Trust Me / Poker Face / Rude Boy / Tik Tok
(3OH!3 / Lady Gaga / Rihanna / Ke$ha cover)
The Dead Weather – New Pony (Bob Dylan cover)
The Dead Weather – Forever My Queen (Pentagram cover)
Trombone Shorty – Let’s Get It Started (Black Eyed Peas cover)
Weezer – Kids / Poker Face (MGMT / Lady Gaga cover)
Tori Amos – Love Song (The Cure cover)
