With the rise of content creators on the internet, it seems that everyone is making their own song covers.

Almost every song ever created has its own cover with different renditions.

Most of them are just following the original singer’s version, but some do a great job of transforming the original songs into their own creative interpretations.

Still, not every one of these performances is perfect—modifying a song with the intent to please the crowd can definitely be difficult.

With any great song, it’s important to give it the respect it deserves (especially if it is a classic). People tend to be overly sensitive when it comes to their favorite songs, so changing them is risky. It’s rare to find astounding covers that end up even better than the originals—but that’s what happened in this video!

Robyn Adele Anderson has been featured on a YouTube channel called Postmodern Jukebox, a group that has become popular in reworking popular modern music.

In many of the videos, the performers use 20th-century style scenery and blend it with swing and jazz.

Even so, it should come as no surprise when this American singer from New York turned a rap-rock classic into an upbeat country song. After being Postmodern Jukebox’s main vocalist, Anderson decided to create her own YouTube channel which by now has garnered over 600,000 subscribers.

She gained popularity with a Jazz cover of the song “Chop Suey” by System of a Down which has over 14 million views as of today.

Her cover of “Rollin'” has gained 700,000 views with mostly positive comments from the online crowd.

She aims to recreate other song genres with a taste of vintage. You can visit her YouTube channel to see more of her performances!

Without a doubt, this is how a song cover should be done.

As soon as the first beat kicks in, it feels like you are being transported to a different vintage era between the ’50s and ’80s.

With an updo hairstyle, reds lips and sultry smiles, they seem like they are trying to bring back the pin-up style.

They moved their hips in unison as they started with a melodious three-way harmony.

The instruments come in later, bringing a mix of country and jazz to the song.

While Anderson was executing her own spin on the song, her companions were providing her with a complimentary vocal backup.

For the duration of the song, all the artists sing the vocals perfectly.

The song ends with a wink from Anderson, a gesture signifying the end of their performance.

Incorporating many different musical elements into their cover, they created a masterpiece!

With her companions Sarah Krauss and Julianne Daly, Anderson stunned the internet when they released this country cover of “Rollin” by Limp Bizkit.

This song became popular in 2000 and was on top of the charts when it was released.

This cover is indeed ambitious as it portrays an entirely different take to its original version.

Though the original is known for using curse words in its lyrics, this country arrangement has somewhat softened it with their pleasant voices.

In all, they took something everyone knew and spun it in a classy way. Although it sounds different, they stayed true to the song’s intended meaning—and it sounds great!
