Rock Meets the Middle Ages.

Cover songs are a fascinating subject. Some bands try to stay as true to the original source material as a tribute to their musical heroes. Others take a popular song and put their own unique twist on it. One such band to do the later is Stary Olsa, a Russian Renaissance music band.

According to Aletia, Stary Olsa takes “pop-rock music hits of the 20th century become troubadour-like songs that might well have suited the ears of a 13th-century audience”. The result is really cool. Take a listen for yourself.
