Best Covers: Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs ‘Hot Stuff’

Pigs x 7’s and Lovely Eggs’ sludgy cover of Donna Summer’s ionic disco track “Hot Stuff” is about as far from the original as you can get while still remaining recognizable. Singers Matthew Baty and Holly Ross shout and scream the lyrics while the remaining band members pound away on the song, alternating between what sounds like The Melvins and what sounds like The Stooges. But the song retains its melody and, uncannily, some of its danceability. There’s an extended coda featuring more shouting just in case you missed the point.
