Ed Sheeran Covers Iron Maiden and Limp Bizkit (Recap)

On Wednesday Ed Sheeran Covers Iron Maiden and Limp Bizkit was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Ed Sheeran performed snippets of the Iron Maiden classic, "Run To The Hills", and a Limp Bizkit hit on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday. The pop singer was featured in a skit promoting "Ed Sheeran Sings Heavy Metal", a new album featuring heavy metal and hardcore rap hits.

"Do you enjoy the morbid and disturbing themes of heavy metal music, but wish that it had a more cheerful, pleasant sound?", said Fallon in character as Steve Joshua. "Well, wish no more."

Billed as collection of 25 "of the darkest, most skull-crushing songs ever written", the mock infomercial saw the UK singer perform the Maiden track alongside Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff", while a second project, "Ed Sheeran Sings Hardcore Rap", delivered a preview of the Ty Dolla $ign track, "Paranoid."

"Run To The Hills" originally appeared on Iron Maiden's 1982 album, "The Number Of The Beast." Watch the skit - here.
