David Bowie was easily one of the most influential musicians of all time. Every era of music that has followed the 60’s/70’s classic rock era has featured artists who were influenced by Bowie. In the 80’s you had bands like The Smiths, whose frontman Morrissey definitely carried on Bowie’s sense of style and lyrical phrasing. In the 90’s, artists like late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland cited Bowie as one of their top musical influences, with Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor even reworking “I’m Afraid Of Americans” to help Bowie have his biggest hit in years.

The 2000’s had bands like The Killers who helped revive Bowie’s dark glam rock sound, with Bowie giving one of his final live performances with Arcade Fire. In this article, we are focusing on the greatest Bowie covers performed by 90’s alternative rock artists. Rest in peace David.
