This edition of Cover Wars features a song that came out in 2010, and is still highly covered today. The song is: ‘Pumped Up Kicks‘ by Foster the People.
This song was one of the most popular songs of 2011, and is STILL heard all over the radio and TV today. Last night I was at a concert, and a band called Electric Touch covered it and the crowd went wild! I think the strength of this song was that it was never overplayed too much. It may not be your go to song on your iPod, but whenever it comes on you’ll enjoy singing along.
Below are the top 5 covers of ‘Pumped Up Kicks‘ that we have found. Vote below for the one you like best. If you have any suggestions for a cover of this song that you love and we have missed, please leave it in the comments below. Who knows, we may even add it :)
