THE SONG:We Can’t Stop
THE ORIGINAL: Miley Cyrus twerked her way out of a family-friendly image with the help of french-fry skulls, taxidermied critters, and a house full of L.A. kids dancing with “Miley.”
THE COVER: MTV Artist To Watch Bastille give the mellow-hop banger a soulful, folk-rock repackaging, and even mash up a li’l bit of Billy Ray Cyrus’Achy Breaky Heart” in there, too.
THE HOOK: It’s probably because #British, but wait until you hear how frontman Dan Smith pronounces “can’t.” It’s, like, some “Miley/Molly”-level awesomeness.

+ Watch Bastille cover Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop.”
