What do you get when you cross the low key folk rock of Bon Iver with the arena rock of Bon Jovi? You'd probably get something like Bon Joviver.

This cover is by Miracles of Modern Science who have other covers as well as original material online.

This could have been incredibly stupid. But it wasn't. It was awesome.

Bon Jiver would be preferable, I think.

I knew this day would come, I just didn't think it would come so soon.

That was really really good, for how short it was.

Do they die at the end?

Sort of an obvious one, but they did it very well.
I love how they are sadly staring at candles. With fur hats on.

Interesting stereo effect going on there, since different voices end up in different channels and it ends up sounding less in sync.

But, but, you didn't link to their cover of This Charming Man.

May as well use this time to share Beatallica.

For my money, the gold standard for cover-song mashups is still the Beatnix.

OMG. Can we replace the real Morrissey with a violin, too? That video proves they're basically interchangeable, and violins are way less racist on the whole.

Now do Rebecca Black Eyed P. J. Harvey (D.J.) Dangermoussy Elliott Smiths.

wreckingball, absolutely. That violin was a perfect Morrissey, wasn't it?

The prospect of more of these non-computerized, somewhat understated 'mashups' makes me Bon Jovial

I just listened to Bon Iver's self-titled album for the first time this weekend. It struck me very much as if Supertramp had taken enormous amounts of acid instead of cocaine and white wine.

Which isn't at all a bad thing.
