Rodrigo y Gabriela topped our Best Cover Songs of 2019 list with a truly epic version of Pink Floyd’s “Echoes,” and the Mexican flamenco-metal duo have already returned. Their new Mettal EP includes covers of Metallica’s “Battery” (listen here), Slayer’s “Seasons in the Abyss,”: and, in a new single just posted, Megadeth’s “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due.”
Angie McMahon – Knowing Me, Knowing You (ABBA cover)
It comes too late for our Best ABBA Covers countdown, but Angie McMahon’s low-simmer version of “Knowing Me, Knowing You” would make a worthy addition. Though it comes coated in a layer of rock grit, the band’s vocal harmonies stand up to the Swedes. And just wait for Angie McMahon’s cover-closing holler.
