Medieval bangers and tavern stompers circa 2020

Medieval bangers and tavern stompers circa 2020

Treat thine ears and eyes to a new genre of music – bardcore!

Perhaps you’re looking for that tavern banger that you enjoyed back in 1365. Or perhaps you want to reminisce on the summer solstice when you gathered with jolly folk at Stonehenge, got wasted on mead and were visited by a strange celestial portent from the gods, telling you to down tools and look for a maiden fair and true?

Somebody that I used to know (Medieval style)

Hips don’t lie – Shakira (Medieval style)

Jolene – Dolly Parton (Medieval cover)

What is Love? – Haddaway (Medieval style)

Nothing else matters – Metallica (Medieval style)

Eye of the Tiger – Survivor (medieval version)

Creep – Radiohead (medieval version)

What is Bardcore?

Bardcore or Taverncore is a manifestation of internet memes which lampoon medieval culture, along with remakes of pop songs from previous decades. This is a bleakly funny meme which became very popular over the COVID lockdown and also grimly satirises both the uncontrolled pandemics of the medieval era – the Black Death, leprosy etc, and the pandemic of 2020. Or at least…that’s how I interpet it!

The comments section under each of these songs is pure comedy gold.

      1. Hehehe yeah, so funny but also actually very nice high quality and soothing music. Ladies…or should I say Fair Maidens we are living in the wrong era clearly hehe


  1. Hehe I hope she likes it. I think it’s fair to say it takes you back to the summer of 1066 in England. A massive field rave with guys wearing suits of armour and speaking French, but no ecstasy, only mead hehehe.
