The buzz surrounding Miley Cyrus' cover of Led Zeppelin's recording of "Babe I'm Going To Leave You" (which itself is a cover of Anne Bredon's tune recorded by Joan Baez prior to Zeppelin), reminds us that it's easy to get caught up in the hoopla that is Miley Cyrus' persona, and even easier to write her off as an awful product of the pop music factory. But if you step back for a moment and look at some of her cover performances, you might find that it isn't Miley you don't like, it's her songs. We can't guarantee it, but hell, she's not going anywhere, so why not give some of these a listen?

It seems that we even like Miley Cyrus better when she's covering herself ... Miley Cyrus. Check out her a cappella version of "We Can't Stop" featuring Jimmy Fallon and the Roots for proof:
