Metal Bands Covering Pop Songs

Pop

For this week’s Loud List, we compiled clips of metal bands covering pop songs.

You don’t typically think you’ll hear pop songs when you’re going to a metal show, but music is music, and a lot of artists don’t discriminate by genre. Plus, you’d be lying if you said there isn’t a single pop song in the history of music that you like.

The definition of pop music has changed overtime, especially as certain genres become more prominent. During times where rock ‘n’ roll was the most popular style of music… one could argue that it was “pop music,” as “pop” just stands for popular.

Nowadays, most people associate the term pop music with any artist that’s played on Top 40 radio stations. So, musicians including Beyonce, The Weeknd, Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus and Ed Sheeran would be considered pop.
