Cage The Elephant are no strangers to covering the music of their favorite artists. They've put their own spin on songs from a variety of genres - from classic rock to pop music. In fact, they love cover songs so much that they included three on their latest release, the live album Unpeeled.

Will they bring one of these awesome cover songs to the ALTer EGO stage? We'll find out on January 19th at The Forum!


1) Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - "Mary Jane's Last Dance"
When Cage The Elephant took the stage at the ALT 98.7 Penthouse in 2017 they treated fans to an epic cover of the Tom Petty classic "Mary Jane's Last Dance." It doesn't get much better than Cage, Petty and an LA rooftop.

 

2) Daft Punk - "Instant Crush"
Last year, Cage The Elephant released their second live album, Unpeeled. The album was recorded during while on tour and included three cover songs. Our personal favorite was their cover of Daft Punk's "Instant Crush" from the electronic music duo's 2013 release Random Access Memories.

 

3) Adele - "Rolling In The Deep"
Back in 2011, Cage The Elephant took on one of the pop music's biggest hits - Adele's "Rolling In The Deep." The grittiness of Matt's vocals mixed with Adele's fierce lyrics is right on point.

 

4) Talking Heads - "Psycho Killer"
During a TV show soundcheck the band started jamming out to the Talking Head's classic "Psycho Killer" and cameras started rolling. The impromptu performance of the song turned out pretty good for something that came together on the spot. 

 

5) Nirvana - "All Apologies"
During a visit to iHeartRadio a few years back, Cage The Elephant treated us to an acoustic cover of Nirvana's "All Apologies." If there's one alternative singer that can match Kurt Cobain's vocals, it's Matt.
