Fleetwood Mac‘s music has inspired generations of musicians, many of whom have paid lip service to the band via cover versions. In the ’1994, Smashing Pumpkins, had a #3 Modern Rock hit with their take on “Landslide.” Two years later, Hole did a roof-raising “Gold Dust Woman” for the soundtrack to The Crow: City Of Angels. In 2002, the Dixie Chicks had a #2 hit on the Country charts with their take on “Landslide.” And last year, the band was a subject of a tribute album that included a number of current indie acts including Best Coast, the New Pornographers, Karen Elson, Tame Impala, the Kills and MGMT.
The cover is part of the GRAMMYS “ReImagined” series, which sees contemporary artists discussing how they were influenced by past GRAMMY-winning and/or -recognized songs and includes their own reimagined interpretations of the recording.
The Lumineers are the latest group to take a swing at a Mac classic.
