    I know in some circles this will be considered sacrilege, but I far prefer the EWF to the Beatles' version.

    Laibach covers are insane :) Somehow, while I never listened to Bob Dylan too much, the covers of his songs are some of my favorites

    Bob Dylan/Laibach:

    Bob Dylan/Ministry — the solo is so good in this one:

    This one is just insane, the combination of the music and the video footage gives me goosebumps.

    Laibach is a very controversial band that utilizes a lot of imagery based on dictators, sarcastically,
    yet good enough to be sometimes taken seriously by the ones they mock.

    In 2015 they got invited to play a show in North Korea, and they chose to cover the whole soundtrack of the "The Sound of Music", crazy stuff.
    The footage in the video is from their trip.

    Pops Staples was a genius at making the most of a very spare sound with just guitar+drums+vocals. Many have copied this formula (White Stripes), but no body does it better that Ms. Madison Cunningham!
