Metal Insider’s Top 5: Genesis/Phil Collins covers

Posted by on June 3, 2016

3) HELLYEAH, “I Don’t Care Anymore”


This already-solid version of the lead track from Collins’ second solo album, Hello, I Must Be Going! is enhanced knowing that that Dime is on the track. Like “In the Air Tonight,” it showcases a darker side of Collins’ songwriting.


2) Nonpoint, “In the Air Tonight”


This is probably Collins’ best-known song, especially because of the drum fill in it. It was used in the pilot episode of the TV show Miami Vice, and Nonpoint covered the song in 2005. The following year, their version was used in the film version of Miami Vice.


1) Disturbed, “Land of Confusion”


Disturbed are currently winning over fans with their cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” but they’ve had a long history of covering tunes. Their first album featured a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Shout,” but their biggest cover until now was their cover of Invisible Touch‘s “Land of Confusion.” Taken from their third album, 10,000 Fists, it was accompanied by a video animated by Todd McFarlane (SpawnSpider Man).
