I heard about this months ago through Q magazine. Kinda mixing MTV Unplugged with Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge, Stripped get artists from every possible genre to strip their music down to basics so the true genius of their workings can be seen/heard. They also pay homage to an inspiring act by doing a cover.

They are adding artists all the time, and have an impressive archive of video and audio of many acts. Some of my picks are below:

Staind

  • It’s Been Awhile
  • Nutshell (Alice In Chains cover)

Chris Cornell

  • Original Fire
  • Like A Stone
  • Blackhole Sun
  • Redemption Song (Bob Marley cover)

Switchfoot

  • God Only Knows (Beach Boys cover)

Fall Out Boy

  • Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)

Kanye West

  • Gold Digger

Nelly Furtado

  • Promiscuous
  • Maneater
  • I’m Like A Bird
  • Crazy (Gnarls Barkley cover)

Other artists featured include James Blunt (and a cover of the Pixies’ Where Is My Mind), Natasha Bedingfield (and a cover of Coldplay’s The Scientist), Hoobastank (and a cover of Guns N’ Roses’ Civil War), John Legend and Ludacris. The Killers are scheduled for 3rd October.
