WTF: Pop Sabbath Cover

And speaking of the relationship of metal to non-metal:

I've heard of metal bands covering pop songs, but this is the only example I've ever seen of the reverse happening. Apparently the Swedish group The Cardigans did this back in 1995. It's like they tried to drain all the blood and energy out of it--I guess I shouldn't expect to understand it--but it's nice to see the outside world give at least a nod to metal every now and then. Even if the last time it happened was 15 years ago.

  1. They've done a few Sabbath covers over the years as I understand. Apparently most of the members are big fans and kind of got stuck playing this stuff but because they were making money never tried to get out of it. Pop poseurs.
