The Detroit Cobras and Girl in a Coma

There's something about Michigan that will forever capture my imagination: Motown, Alice Cooper, early punk rock, even its techno scene—all under the gritty backdrop of its blue-collar skyline. The Detroit Cobras (from you guessed it) are all about it, too—and they might be the best cover band around. For almost two decades, the Cobras' core members—Rachel Nagy and Mary Ramirez—have made a career out of interpreting, reinventing, and rocking the fuck out of obscure tunes found on dusty old 45s. While they pay homage to artists of all shapes and sizes from all over the globe (including Kingston's the Melodians), they keep it in the spirit of their namesake. So what if the Detroit Cobras are a cover band? They are more genuine than the thousands of other bands playing covers and passing them off as originals. MARK LORE
