At this point, it'd be a challenge to find a musician who isn't influenced by Prince in some way. His majestic voice, formidable guitar technique and songwriting sensibilities formed a repository of 20th century American music, and everyone from Patti Smith to Alicia Keys has seemingly acknowledged this influence with a cover. Let's take a look at some of the best.

The 90s will forever be equally loved and reviled by rock music purists. The decade offered some of the biggest momentum shifts the industry had ever seen (along with a de-glittering of the genre that was long overdue), but it also spat out some of the most watered-down, godawful excuses for “rock music” to be found in any era.
And while it’s pretty hard to argue that second thought, it’s also a little misleading. Because some of those bands so frequently associated with ruining rock music are a helluva lot more talented than they’re given credit for. But since the nature of the business is based on disposable talent, who can come in and deliver a slice of whatever the flavor of the month happens to be, a lot of great bands were overlooked because they never got a second chance.

Step aside, Narcos: There's a new Netflix kids' show in town! It's called Beat Bugs, and it's an animated show about five best bug-friends who explore the suburban backyard where they live. What's more, the series will feature over 50 covers of Beatles songs by artists such as Eddie Vedder, Sia, Chris Cornell, Pink, the Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Regina Spektor, and many more. Creator Josh Wakely will direct, write, and produce Beat Bugs, which was green-lit by Netflix after securing a deal with Sony/Atv publishing for the worldwide rights to cover songs from John Lennon and Paul McCartney's Northern Songs catalogue, Rolling Stone reports. Judging by Eddie Vedder's cover of "Magical Mystery Tour" in the trailer, it seems like the covers will stay pretty true to the originals.
