Ed Sheeran covers Limp Bizkit and heavy metal for Jimmy Fallon

Posted on


Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” has never sounded quite as romantic and soulful as when Ed Sheeran gets his vocals and acoustic guitar behind the track.

The musician did exactly that on The Tonight Show, promoting a fake album you’ll wish were real after watching his performance. The heavy metal cover album (sadly, not actually sold at deathsheeran.com), also includes covers of Iron Maiden, Hand of God, and a bonus album full of hardcore rap hits.

Sheeran—who recently answered 36 questions for EW—makes even the harshest of lyrics sound family friendly. Hopefully, now he’s got plenty of new cover ideas for his concerts.
