With a guitar in hand, I am a one-person cover band with a repertoire of early 2000s rock music at my disposal. “Cover This!” is dedicated to the creators and viewers of cover songs! I love looking back to YouTube’s early days—when searching for the latest pop ballad meant receiving pages of people’s shoddy acoustic covers before ever finding a recording of the original artist being searched. Shit, I was responsible for a handful of Foo Fighters and Lana Del Rey acoustic covers. Were they any good? Fuck no. But, imitation is the best form of practice. “Cover This” is keeping on with the tradition of imitation. The artists included mix different genre elements to the original lyrics and rhythm of the cover song to create fresh musicality, bringing forth a new mood, style, and even rethinking the meaning of the original song.
