Iowa State in Rolling Stone’s ’10 Best College Marching Band Cover Songs’ list

Rolling Stone put together a video list of the 10 Best College Marching Band Cover Songs and Iowa State University’s version of No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs” made the cut at No. 9. That performance was from a 2009 game. As writer John Gentile pointed out, No Doubt’s ska origins just make sense for a horn-heavy marching band cover.

The page also includes marching band covers of Carly Rae Jepsen, Skrillex, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and others. Considering “Spiderwebs” is nearly 20 years old, it stands out among the more contemporary covers on the list.
