There’s really only one thing better than a good cover song: 60 minutes of really good cover songs.

As 2014 draws to a close, we meticulously poured through (yeah, watching Jagwar Ma videos qualifies as “work”) all of the performances which took place at SiriusXM’s studios or at SiriusXM events this past year, and pulled out our favorite covers. What resulted is a collection that includes a German folk duo covering Miley Cyrus, a pair of takes on popular Bruce Springsteen songs, a mind-blowing cover of the Nine Inch Nails’ Closer and our favorite cover of Magic!’s Rude out there.

(Wondering where Sam Smith, Nicole Scherzinger and 5 Seconds of Summer are? We’ve got a SiriusXM Hits 1 covers playlist, too.)

Watch the videos below, and scroll down to have a look at all 16 videos on the playlist.
