We’ve seen quite a few “Best Songs of 2019” lists. However, we decided to do something different and highlighted ten of our favorite cover songs that were released this year. In case you missed it, as we are currently wrapping up the year and decade, check out our other lists: Best Albums of the Decade, Stories of the Decade, Black Metal Albums of the Decade, Zenae’s best concerts of 2019, and Zach’s, Zenae’s, Bram’s, Matt’s, and Jeff’s top metal albums of 2019.
10) Weezer, “Paranoid” (Black Sabbath cover)
We were skeptical at first to hear Weezer cover Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” After a few listens, they did a pretty good job highlighting this classic masterpiece. The track is taken from the group’s overall twelfth full-length album known as The Teal Album, which was released earlier this year. The record consists of ten cover tracks, including songs from Tears of Fears, Ah-ha, Toto, and more.
