Technically a single cover, but this is too excellent not to include. Bowie's 1974 single Rebel Rebel, taken from his legendary Diamond Dogs release. Bowie poses in full Ziggy Stardust get up, red shag/mullet, knee high platforms, shoulder pads and skin tight bodysuit, perfectly applied makeup and the iconic lightning bolt. Seriously cool.

Trapped - The Specials (Chapter 13)

.:.:.:.:.:.Bring Me The Horizon.:.:.:.:.:. Their Sempiternal album, a heavy mix of techno and metal, an album that brought them into the public eye as a bigger band Older fans seem to dislike the change but I think it shows how the band is not afraid to develop their music and evolve something new each time something new is released which makes their music constantly interesting and intriguing.. a big love of mine
