I'm usually the one that complains whenever I hear iconic '80s songs covered by modern artists. It's basically the same reaction I get usually when I hear movies are being remade. Although I usually cringe or roll my eyes, I sometimes get a feeling of respect when the remake is done in a way that it respects the original property.
Over the last several years, I've found the door actually swings both ways in the world of music. While most of us view cover songs as modern artists remaking past hits, there are actually several retro artists that have covered modern tracks...and most are quite good.
When I'm not listening to '80s music (if you can imagine such as thing) I generally listen to modern alternative music. I've heard many covers of '80s songs by alternative bands and even rated a few of them on the UnderScoopFire! website. But I've also heard several covers of modern alternative songs performed by what I would classify as '80s artists too and thought I'd share them.
Can you think of anymore great modern covers by '80s bands? Leave them in the comments!
