We’ve all seen our share of cringe-worthy cover bands that take our favorite songs and run them through a shredder, but there are, in fact, some seriously talented tribute acts out there. We’re talking tribute bands that tour, pack clubs and deliver performances that nearly mirror that of the real thing.

When starting up a tribute act, there truly is a responsibility to pay homage to your musical heroes by capturing the essence of their greatest moments and sharing a small piece of that with like-minded fanatics. The following bands have accepted that challenge, earned their success and in some instances, received blessings from the very bands they pay tribute to.

From Iron Maiden to Metallica to Nirvana and many more, we’ve teamed up with Ultimate Classic Rock to present 10 Tribute Bands Nearly as Good as the Originals. Click below to check out these great tribute acts:
