Honorable Mention: Anthrax Covers Radiohead’s “The Bends”
There probably isn’t a ton of overlap between Radiohead and Anthrax fans. However as a b-side for 1998’s Volume 8: The Threat is Real, Anthrax, who are no strangers to cover songs, took a left turn and covered the title track of Radiohead’s iconic 1995 album. As far as covers go, it’s pretty faithful to the original. Radiohead fans don’t have to worry about John Bush ruining Thom Yorke’s vocals, and the Anthrax fans unfamiliar with the original probably just wrote it off as the average b-side that it was.
