The Lumineers Take On Fleetwood Mac Classic

(Radio.com) 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 Lumineers are the latest group to take a swing at a Mac classic. 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. Artists are able to select tracks that won in the General Field—which includes the Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Best New Artist categories—or recordings inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame, a collection of many of the greatest recordings of all time.

Some other covers in the series include Youngblood Hawke doing Phil Collins' "Another Day In Paradise," Ivan Neville's take on Billy Joel's "Just The Way You Are" and the Brass-A-Holics cover of Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover."
