Musicians are no strangers to covers, and the music industry is no stranger to Miley Cyrus, but the singer who found fame on the Disney Channel playing the titular character in Hannah Montana, has been heading in a new direction these last few months—namely, rock n roll cover songs.

Just in the past month alone, Miley has performed and uploaded covers of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass”, Pearl Jam’s, “Just Breathe”, the Cranberries’ “Zombie”, the Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry”, Britney Spears’ “Gimme More”, Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”, and Billie Eilish’s “My Future”, giving any song on the list that wasn’t already a rock n roll song a distinct rock vibe.

That’s not to mention that one of Miley’s older covers is currently finding new life, going viral on Tik Tok. We’re talking about the Arctic Monkeys’ “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High”, which she originally sang in 2014.

But wait—that’s not all. On October 21st, Miley also announced that she’ll be recording and releasing an entire Metallica cover album, so anybody who’s been loving this side of Miley is sure to be happy. Rock on, Miley.
