Swedish occult-rock phenoms Ghost are masters of the cover song, having taken on the Beatles, Depeche Mode, ABBA and others over the years. So it's not so much of a stretch for YouTube's 10 Second Songs — who have gone viral on the regular by covering well-known songs in the style of other musicians — to channel Cardinal Copia and the Nameless Ghouls for their latest video offerings. What is somewhat of a stretch are some of the choices of artists to be covered — pop icons such as Madonna, Notorious B.I.G. and Hozier, though at least the songs selected make sense for their religious themes and/or Papa references. On the flip side, Blue Öyster Cult also made the cut, and that's pretty much like having Ghost cover an older, unmasked, less-Satanic version of itself.
