Covers performed better than the original......

Ukrainian punk band Beton (which incidentally also means "concrete" in Ukrainian as it does in Afrikaans) doing an awesome cover of The Clash's London Calling, renamed Kyiv Calling and with the lyrics suitably adapted.

I think Joe Strummer would approve.

“The War on Ukraine is an unimaginable tragedy... As a human, and as an artist, I felt compelled to respond in the most significant way I could.

So today, for the first time ever, I publicly performed my Dad’s song, IMAGINE.

Why now, after all these years? - I had always said, that the only time I would ever consider singing ‘IMAGINE' would be if it was the ‘End of the World’…

But also because his lyrics reflect our collective desire for peace worldwide. Because within this song, we’re transported to a space, where love and togetherness become our reality, if but for a moment in time…

The song reflects the light at the end of the tunnel, that we are all hoping for...

As a result of the ongoing murderous violence, millions of innocent families, have been forced to leave the comfort of their homes, to seek asylum elsewhere.

I’m calling on world leaders and everyone who believes in the sentiment of IMAGINE, to stand up for refugees everywhere! Please advocate and donate from the heart. #StandUpForUkraine

—Julian Lennon

Somebody to love - performed by Taylor Hawkins (Dave Grohl on drums) 

 

Taylor Hawkins tribute show, his son plays drums on My Hero. 

Not often I get emotional listening to a song. 😢

Russian Surf Rock band does Joy Division cover.

Sounds like something Quentin Tarantino would use in one of his movies.

Not sure it could ever be better, but a damned good attempt.

Love Massive Attack and Sepultura. I think the mood you are in will determine if the cover is better!
