Amnesiac Turns 10! Hear Covers Of Every Track…

By Scott Lapatine / June 3, 2011 - 3:08 pm

As mentioned in last week’s Radiohead’s 20 Best Cover Songs post, our dear leaders’ fifth album Amnesiac turns ten years old this weekend. Viewed as a more human companion to its boundary pushing cousin Kid A (recorded during the same sessions and released eight months prior), Amnesiac is an equally progressive statement of alt-rock reinvention. To celebrate the milestone we’ve collected cover versions of every track on Amnesiac as a nod to the album’s far-reaching impact. Not surprisingly, many genres (jazz, classical, bluegrass, etc) are represented here, and the songs are performed by artists both famous (Flaming Lips) and obscure (thanks YouTubers). Hope you enjoy…
