As Wrecking Ball still rules the charts, it seems like other artists are trying to rake in the spoils -- with exceptional covers of the heart-break hit -- while they can.

Enstars rounded up five of the best covers -- featuring indie-rock to country -- that are receiving a lot of love from the Internet community right now.

1. Haim

The LA based band has a great career going for itself and just came out with an impressive debut album, Days Are Gone.

The trio service the track for the indie masses, it's delivered with crisp guitar riffs and some pretty neat vocal delivery. The band subtly inverts the song's rhythm structure, giving it more of a pulse on the verse and -- unlike Cyrus -- mellowing down the chorus, which is gradually built up to a cathartic pitch.

The trio did this cover of Cyrus' Wrecking Ball for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.


2. Rumer Willis

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore should have moonlit as singers when they were starting out as actors, maybe they'd be pop stars. Their daughter Rumer Willis has got some pretty impressive vocal pipes. Rumer performed this cover in a slightly dark and mystic style, with a saxophone assisting her on the chorus.


3. James Arthur

Former X-Factor winner James Arthur performed a rather stripped-down version of Wrecking Ball, with an extra dose of schmaltz. He stresses every vocal inflection and the verse is punctuated by a lot of mini-croons. If Cyrus' version didn't set the tears streaming down your face and you wished James Blunt had written this song instead, this one might just do it for you.

Arthur performed this for Radio Hamburg's Live Lounge:


4. Megan Nicole

You can rely on Megan Nicole to deliver a fairly good cover of just about any pop song on YouTube. Nicole's delicate voice sweetens the number, without the slightest trace of angst, she focuses on giving a pitch-perfect delivery. This rendition seems to be the most popular cover on YouTube right now, with over a million hits.


 

5. The Gregory Brothers

Alright, the country folks have also stepped into the game. The Gregory Brothers put an uppity spin on the song -- with a banjo and a whole lot of vocal harmonies.
