Dubstep Remixes of Rock Classics

Taking your pop's favorite classic rock and dubsteppin' all over it.

Planned on doing this for some time, but never thought I had enough. Well, when I first started compiling I definitely didn’t – but after a lot of research on YouTube, SoundCloud & beyond, I’ve come up with nine solid dubstep remixes of that classic rock we’ve grown up on.

Two rock legends I wanted to find were Jimi Hendrix & ZZ Top, but unfortunately there weren’t any quality ones out there. If you know of any, or any other dubstep remixes I haven’t included here, hit it up in the comments below!

The Alchemist – Money (Pink Floyd Dubstep Remix)
This may not technically be a classic rock dubstep remix, it’s got a few more steps, but it’s well deserving to be included.
+ Plus it was the track that first got me thinking that I needed to put something like this together.

Back in ’03, Easy Star All-Stars created Dub Side of the Moon, one of the greatest tribute albums to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Last year they remixed the album with the help of a handful of dubstep producers to create, Dubber Side of the Moon, puttin the step into this dub classic. Of all the tracks, The Alchemist put together one hell of a “Money” dubstep remix.

Minnesota – California Dreamin’ (The Mamas & The Papas Dubstep Remix)
Who’d of thought someone could pull off a dubstep remix of The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreamin’”, but dubstep madman, Minnesota, has done just that. The key to this, and all dubstep remixes, is sticking to what made the original so good and mastering in some artful dubstep coiling. Basically, make sure to leave your exotic solos for you own originals.

Phoenix Dubstep

ZEDS DEAD – Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones Dubstep Remix)
The intro seems to be lacking a bit – it’s got the whole “calm before the storm” goin’, but something’s missing with Mick Jagger’s infamous lines. Soon after, however, ZEDS DEAD tears the track another asshole, bringing it down to the bowels of dubstep.

4centers – Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles Dubstep Remix)
4centers’ dubstep remix of “Eleanor Rigby” was my first taste of rock gone dubstep. The reason I fell for this was the exact same reason I did for Minnesota’s, if you’re gonna remix a song through dubstep, keep what made the original so good and feed that bass some trippy-ass shit.

Stylust Beats – Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd Dubstep Remix)
Alright, since the “Money” remix wasn’t really of Pink Floyd’s, here’s a dubstep remix of “Comfortably Numb”. There are a few tweaks I’d like to make to this, the vocals at times get drowned out by the massive dubstep, but this is still one fiendish remix by Stylus Beats.
The first drop @1:08 is on point!

Omega – Come Together (The Beatles Dubstep Remix)
Not surprisingly, The Beatles were the easiest to find remixes for, although a lot of them weren’t up to par. One thing that many didn’t have, but were required for this list, were the original vocals! (crucial!)
Takes a while for this one to build up, but it does.

ZEDS DEAD – White Satin (The Mood Blues Dubstep Remix)
Another classic rock dubstep remix by ZEDS DEAD with an even bigger drop than the last.

Break out into DUBSTEP

DJ Parker – Iron Mandem (Black Sabbath Dubstep Remix) (feat. Busta Rhymes)
I almost didn’t include this because of the Busta Busta feature, but it got me goin so much I had to include it, plus a lil’ Busta never hurt.
In case you’re wondering, Parker sampled Busta Rhymes from “It’s a Party.”

Specimen A – Cold As Ice (Foreigner Dubstep Remix)
Wasn’t feelin this at first, but kept it just in case I’d warm up to it. And it’s fair to say I have, the wobbles agree with my ear the more I listen to it + I love Foreigner’s original.

    Saw the Minnesota remix of California Dreamin’ featured on another blog (MusikMigBlidt – Danish blog) about a month ago. We came to the conclusion that it is probably a remix of The Mamas & The Papas original version of California Dreamin’ – which I think is supported by the distinctly female voice that can be heard from time to time. The Beach Boys were never that effeminate :)

  2. This is a solid list! I particularly like the California Dreamin’ Mix, Come Together mix, and of course, the Zeds Dead mix. I could be biased on the Zeds Dead mix due to my Canadian roots, but either way, it is still a killer track. I just remembered that Butch Clancy did a remix of Eleanor Rigby as well a little while back which turned out pretty well. Also, look into Adventure Club who remixed Thrice and various other artists. They’re a Canadian duo (much like Zeds) who also do very great work.

    1. DJ Merk says:

      Interesting takes I’d happily sneak into a peak hour set

  3. Tara Jackson says:

    these are great.. but california dreamin’ is definitely the mamas & the papas’ version.

  4. Yep, you guys are definitely right. I’ll fix it right now. Thanks Martin & Tara

  5. DamirB says:

  18. Jason says:

    nice list. but honestly how could you leave out bassnectar? they have a few but the one that really sticks in my mind (as far as classic rock dubstep remix is concerned) is Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. The track is SICK. I work at a gentlemans club as a DJ and I play that track on a daily basis. haha.

  26. ryan says:

    The Iron Maiden remix is legit, except the rapper was superfluous and distracted me from the really well produced track behind his unecessary vocals.

    1. ViN says:

      i may be wrong but i do believe that Ironmandem is a dub remix of a remake. Busta’s version of Iron Man, “This Means War” was included on N.I.B II: Tribute to Black Sabbath.

      i dig this version but would LOVE to hear the original get dubstepped.

  27. Michelle says:

    Amazing mixes! I’d like to have them on my ipod but is there any option of downloading these at all?
