Bluegrass Hip-Hop Grunge

2 Nov

When you go down the YouTube rabbit hole, you never know where you’ll end up. I rather like bluegrass covers of other songs, because… well, it’s funny. However, I didn’t realize how much of this subgenre really existed.

Meet The Cleverleys – a great bluegrass band from Arkansas. This is a five-man family band who do great covers of Thunderstruck, Walk Like an Egyptian, Milkshake, and the piece de resistance, Gangnam Style… in Korean!

There’s also a Finnish band called Steve ‘N’ Seagulls, which is a country band that specializes in bluegrass covers. They’ve done November Rain, Nothing Else Matters, and their own version Thunderstruck, which has to be seen to believed.

But you might say to yourself, okay, heavy metal and pop music… I can see that being parodied very well. However, you haven’t heard of The Gourds, which is alternative country band (or “y’allternative”) which does great songs on their own. However, they managed to do a bluegrass version of the hip-hop song Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg which is simply divine.

Of course, when it comes to music, Your Mileage May Vary. So what do you think? Does this sub-sub-subgenre appeal to you as much as it does to me? Are there other artists I need to be aware of? Is this not your cup of tea? Let me know in the comments below!
