Best Remakes

Occasionally you find a band that does a really amazing job with a remake. It might not necessarily sound like the original, sometimes even better!

London Bridge by Bowling for Soup (originally by Fergie)

While I hate both Fergie and the original song, I fell in love when I first heard this version. Not only does it sound spectacular, but the band is hilarious!

Apologize by Silverstein (originally by OneRepublic)

Silverstein rocks on their own, but mix them with such a great song, and it gets even better!

Umbrella by All Time Low (originally by Rihanna)

Way better than the original (which I also hated)
