CONGRATS! Local Artists on CBC's Best Cover Song List


Sometimes, a cover song can be a unique take on an existing tune and can have a spirit all it's own.

Recently, CBC Music asked it's listeners and readers what the best cover song of all time was. After tallying the results they unveiled a list of the 20 most popular answers.

Not surprisingly, there were a few local musicians in the bunch.

Hamilton Folk Rockers Whitehorse's amazing version of Bruce Springsteen's I'm on Fire made the list.
