One group that to my ear has more hits than misses in this translation is Postmodern Jukebox in selection of songs that will work and selection. Nevertheless, the ones that work certainly do.
This is a very interesting take on "Black Hole Sun" by Postmodern Jukebox.
And "Seven Nation Army"
Also, "Blurred Lines."
And "Clint Eastwood" - with the spoken refrains sung.
