Covering Your Tracks – 15

White Wedding” by Billy Idol is a (post)punk song. When it first hit the air in 1982 Idol’s sneering gave the song its attitude.

The world has changed a hell of a lot since 1982, and Idol’s sneering seems cute now. To bring the song into the 21st century and give it the attitude and fist pumping anger worthy of 2010; enter Murderdolls [@Murderdollsband ]. Murderdolls cover White Wedding – fun and good music ensue.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Also, it seems the song has been covered a lot. A whole lot;

The song has been covered by many bands including Australian 80’s Revival band John West Experience and other bands including, Murderdolls, Ten Masked Men, Ardor (of Tanzwut), Deathstars, Doro, Rowland S. Howard on his album Teenage Snuff Film, Sentenced, Aiden, The Way of All Flesh. Kayvon Zand, Whip, The House Jacks, and the band Queens of the Stone Age on their 2007 album Era Vulgaris as a B-Side. —more
