Is this the best cover of A-ha's "Take On Me" of all time? That depends on how many covers of it you've heard. We're big fans of covers, at least co-founder Alex Roy is, so we've done the heavy lifting for you and found some more of them, ranging from jazzy to metal.

Let's start with the original 80's classic:

Then we've got this fun acoustic version by Seven Handle Circus from New Orleans:

And then you have this which could almost be by Fishbone, but is by another band with "fish" in it, Reel Big Fish:

How about a very 80's-style metal cover by a very Nordic metal band called Northern Kings?

If that soft metal cover wasn't metal enough for you, here's a speed metal version from Triphon. Starts heavier than it ends:

Sadly for the cover bands, it seems that the best cover us actually the acoustic version by the original A-ha for MTV unplugged. Yes, we know it's not really a cover, but it's certainly the loveliest version:
