Post Malone – “Congratulations”
Post Malone might be known for being a rapper, but the “Rockstar” singer has also dabbled in other genres by covering Green Day and sparking speculation of a Bring Me The Horizon collab. A rock cover totally works.
The Weeknd – “The Hills”
SoCal’s Coastbound took the Weeknd’s haunting pop hit and sped it up for a pop-punk banger.
Idina Menzel – “Let It Go” from Frozen
Back in 2013, it was hard to escape all things Frozen upon the film’s release. This was especially true when it came to “Let It Go,” so the Last Sleepless City’s pop-punk rework is a welcome refresh.
Luis Fonsi – “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee
Latin pop singer Luis Fonsi teamed with rapper Daddy Yankee (both hailing from Puerto Rico) to produce the mega-hit “Despacito” last year. Justin Bieber appeared on an English re-release, but this pop-punk version reimagines the original Spanish track.
Halsey – “Bad At Love”
Halsey’s music is an expert blend of many genres, and the singer has revealed a love for the scene from performing with Panic! At The Disco to checking out Mayday Parade, so this rockin’ cover of “Bad At Love” by the Cause & The Cure only makes sense.
Harry Styles – “Sign Of The Times”
Post-One Direction Harry Styles ventured into more of a rock-tinged solo career marked by the platinum piano ballad “Sign Of The Times,” which still works as an upbeat pop-punk anthem courtesy of duo TeraBrite.
Taylor Swift – “Bad Blood”
Taylor Swift is the driving force behind many of modern music’s earworms including her 2014 hit “Bad Blood” (whose video includes a Hayley Williams appearance). But the track somehow becomes even more catchy when presented in a pop-punk arrangement by Swedish duo Twenty One Two.
