Ping Pong (Armin Van Buuren) - Hardwell Cover
The ranked one DJ in the world decided to put his spin on the hit track by the God of Trance. We certainly think this was something the world was looking forward to.
Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden) - Cradle of Filth Cover
?A classic given to us by the pioneers of the British wave of metal - Hallowed Be Thy Name, but the famous black metal band Cradle of Filth gave it a darker and more sinister feel.
Warning: Anti-Metal listeners, skip this track.
Use Somebody (Kings of Leon) - Armin Van Buuren & Laura Jansen Cover
A track that everyone knows and loves has gotten a whole new feel to it. So much so that it has changed its genre from rock to trance. It's the perfect combo of calm and happy in one.
O Re Piya/Rolling in the deep (Adele) - Shankar Tucker Cover / Mashup
The extremely talented Shankar Tucker decided to give Adele's Rolling In The Deep the desi feel with beats, sounds and even a nice little mashup of O Re Piya along with it.
The Man Who Sold The World (David Bowie) - Nirvana Cover
The last one to make the list is The Man Who Sold The World originally by David Bowie but made famous by Kurt Cobain and his band Nirvana. Giving the grunge sound to an otherwise melodic classic.
