Popular Songs You Won't Believe Are Actually Covers

Popular Songs You Won't Believe Are Actually Covers
There are some cover songs out there that artists perform so well you forget someone did it first. We bet there’s a least a handful of songs on this list you thought weren't covers.

Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin (Jake Holmes)

This song actually has a pretty nasty past. Jimmy Page heard the song performed by Jake Holmes, who was opening for the Yardbirds while Page was a part of the band. The Yardbirds then bought a record of the song and copied it while adding new music for all of their instruments. While mostly reserved for live shows, it was included on a live album – and was the ...

Jani Lane
Jani Lane's close family and friends gathered at a church in Ohio over the weekend to remember the late rocker at a private memorial service.

The body of the former Warrant singer was found at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles on August 11th, prompting an outpouring of tributes from stars including Nikki Sixx and Slash.

A string of old school rock bands, including Great White, Quiet Riot and Enuff Z'nuff, have announced a memorial gig for Lane, to be held at the Key Club in Hollywood later this month.

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

The Evil Dead
In the mid-1980s while American mothers panicked over the influence rock music had on the nation's youth, the mothers of Great Britain panicked over an entirely different matter. Rather than setting their crosshairs on Quiet Riot or Prince, the British went after ultra-violent exploitation films.

Guyliner 2.0

Tokio Hotel
Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately.

Some a...
