During a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, rapper Post Malone covered a Pearl Jam song, and the internet has (for the most part), really enjoyed it.

When artists from different genres dip their toes into other musical waters, the end result may not be super great (we are looking at you Machine Gun Kelly). However, Post Malone has not only displayed a true passion for rock and heavy metal, but he has also displayed some solid chops when it comes to performing rock music. In the past, he has covered Nirvana‘s music, and Howard Stern was real impressed by his performance.

On The Howard Stern Show, rapper Post Malone covered the Pearl Jam song “Better Man.” Prior to performing the cover, Malone talks about his relationship with the Pearl Jam track.

But Malone’s cover of the song is… well… it is something. You can check out that performance for yourself below.

What are your thoughts on this cover? Do you think Post Malone did pretty well, or not so much?

Speaking of artists outside rock and metal covering heavy songs… why not take a trip down memory lane and revisit when Machine Gun Kelly decided to cover a System of a Down song. Colson (legal first name of Machine Gun Kelly), was also on The Howard Stern show when he performed the band’s song “Aerials.” If you want to check out MGK’s performance, you can follow the link below.
