Rolling Stone just released a list of the 10 most killer cover songs of the past decade and Karen O & Trent Reznor's cover of Immigrant Song made the list.

Bands who try to do straight-ahead covers of the mightiest Led Zeppelin songs usually come out looking like they got squashed by a blimp. Trent Reznor and Karen O's take on Zep's classic ode to Viking warriors – which appeared on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack – is an industrial rock crusher that rivals the original while adding an extra level of art-horror creepiness. Reznor lays down a storming track and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer brings the midnight sun with warrior priestess yowls that sound like she recorded her vocal after a couple weeks out pillaging coastal Europe. She barely sounds human on the opening bellows, which is fitting since Reznor's electronic noise blizzard sonics barely sound like music. The land of the ice and snow never sounded so foreboding.
