Search for a Katy Perry Cover on YouTube and countless results will be flooded your way. From talented kids on pianos, to a mustached man in a purple wig surfing through chatroulette to the tune of “Peacock,” there is no shortage of Perry impersonators.

In possibly the most unexpected cover, Woe, is Me covered “Hot N Cold” at the 2011 Warped Tour. Their hardcore version comes along with some NSFW banter with the crowd.
