Covering Radiohead’s Karma Police

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Radiohead’s song "Karma Police" captured the generational malaise of the 1990s and is now of the most covered songs on YouTube. Now, a new cover by Israeli artists, a cover that may have begun as a satire, has blossomed into a full blown viral hit.

Tel Aviv-based musician Rotem Shefy sings the song, pronouncing the English words with a distinct Middle Eastern accent. Leat Sabbah accompanies on cello. The track was recorded at Bardo Studios in Tel Aviv by Avi Ein Zur.
