Funniest Cover Songs by Metal Bands

Metal_Treasure
In most of these cover songs metal bands were just having some fun.

The Top Ten

1 Oops!...I Did It Again - Children of Bodom

Britney Spears death metal cover. - Metal_Treasure

2 Hocus Pocus - Helloween

Hocus Pocus is a 1971 song originally by Focus, a Dutch rock band. Helloween released their cover version in 1999.
The original song was already funny because it mixed rock and yodeling. Helloween mixed yodeling with metal, as if it wasn't weird enough to mix yodeling and rock.
And yes, Andi Deris IS yodeling! - "Joladadijoladadijoladadijoladadi, Joladadijoladadi-jo-o-ooh! " (I guess it's Andi and not somebody else from the band).
I love this cover song, it's fun to listen to especially if you are a metal / Helloween fan. - Metal_Treasure

3 Toxic - Trollfest

Britney Spears cover. With death growls. The video is very funny, too, because the band members look like trolls. - Metal_Treasure

4 Stayin' Alive - Ten Masked Men

Bee Gees death metal cover. Bee Gees singers use falsetto and the contrast with the low death growls makes me laugh hard. - Metal_Treasure

5 Lookin' Out My Back Door - Children of Bodom

Creedence Clearwater Revival cover.
Just play the song sample, LOL. Never expected a death metal band to play such instruments. There's a video to this cover song that also shows Children of Bodom were having fan. - Metal_Treasure

6 Hocus Pocus - Iron Maiden

This is another Focus metal cover, besides the one by Helloween.
In this cover song you won't hear the yodelling of Iron Maiden's singer Bruce Dickinson. Because the vocals were provided by Iron Maiden's drummer Nicko McBrain who was just having some fun.
This cover is mostly instrumental with Nicko McBrain speaking funny stuff in the intro and outro.
I can't describe this cover version. You should hear Nicko McBrain. - Metal_Treasure

7 Surfin' Bird - Sodom

Just play the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

8 Hot Stuff - Ten Masked Men

Donna Summer death metal cover. It's what you think - disco with brutal death growls. Sounds so funny to me. - Metal_Treasure

9 Livin' la Vida Loca - Ten Masked Men

Ricky Martin death metal cover. Happy Latino music with death growls. The contrast makes it funny to me. - Metal_Treasure
