10 Grunge Rock David Bowie Covers

There is no doubt that David Bowie has shaped generations of artists throughout the world. Having died peacefully from cancer, aged 69, he will be sadly missed. Bowie was possibly one of the most creative musicians that the world has ever seen; he was always redefining sound and art as we knew it.

Having explored just about every style possible, it is no wonder that Bowie has managed to influence almost every genre of music imaginable. This includes the massive influence that he had on rock bands, including grunge bands. Bowie was covered by just about every grunge band in the 90’s and Bowie himself covered a few songs from his favourite grunge bands; for example, ‘Cactus’ by the Pixies. Clearly Bowie was a bit of a grunge fan and, for what it’s worth, we liked him too – the dude totally rocked… and may be Rock In Peace \m/
