The Late Movies: Classic Songs, Different Instruments

Mark Arminio

Tonight for the Late Movies we take a look at some classic cover songs, played on a variety of different instruments. If you have any others, leave them in the comments!

"Nothing Else Matters"

Here is Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" played on a dulcimer, which is exactly how Lars intended it.

"We Will Rock You"

If you ever wanted to hear Queen's "We Will Rock You" on bagpipes (and honestly, who hasn't?), this is your lucky day.


I don't know what a Justin Bieber is, but here's a cover of his song "Baby" on a keytar.


This clip features Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" on a Violin.

"What Is Love?"

No list would be complete without Haddaway's "What Is Love?" on accordion.

"Viva La Vida"

Here is a cover of Coldplay's smash hit "Viva La Vida" on the saxophone.


We'll close out the night with two toxic songs. The first is "Toxicity" by System Of A Down as played on piano.


And I saved the best for last. This is the now-defunct bluegrass band Nickel Creek covering "Toxic" by Britney Spears on fiddle, guitar and mandolin.
