On Coverville, the Cover-Song Podcast: The Who, Guns 'N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, & More

Recent episodes on the Coverville podcast include covers of songs by everyone from The Who and Bob Dylan to Guns N' Roses and Grace Jones.
It's been a long time since I posted an update on recent episodes from Coverville, the free cover-song podcast. So here's a look at some of the episodes that have come out lately (OK, going back to April). As usual with Coverville, most episodes spotlight a specific artist, but there are also podcasts on a certain genre (such as the country music episode).
  • The Who #2 (including "Substitute" by Graham Parker, "I Can't Explain" by Scorpions, and "The Seeker" by Rush)
  • Guns 'N Roses (featuring "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Taken by Trees, "Don't Cry" by Mogwai, and "Welcome to the Jungle" by Wave in Head)
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers (including "Give It Away" by Bjørn Berge, "Under the Bridge" by Straight No Chaser, and "Californication" by Vitamin String Quartet)
  • Country song covers #2 - country-style covers of pop hits (including " Life In a Northern Town (Live)" by Sugarland, Little Big Town, and Jake Owen; "You Shook Me All Night Long" by Big and Rich, and "Tequila Sunrise" by Alan Jackson)
  • The Pretenders #2 (featuring "Don't Get Me Wrong" by Lily Allen, "Brass in Pocket" by Kelis, and "Talk of the Town" by the Pernice Brothers)
  • Bob Dylan #4  (including "Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright" by Curtis Stigers, "Blowin’ In The Wind" by Jools Holland and Ruby Turner, and "Girl from The North Country" by Eels)
Also recently featured on Coverville: Steve Winwood, Grace Jones, Muse, the podcast's second Madonna cover song episode, and more, including covers of songs from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Goodfellas."
