Earlier this year during her set at Glastonbury, Miley Cyrus (opens in new tab) covered Nine Inch Nails’ Head Like A Hole and Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters.

Cyrus previously covered Inch Inch Nails’ Pretty Hate Machine classic for hit Netflix show Black Mirrorchanging the lyrics with the blessing of NIN leader Trent Reznor (opens in new tab).

The episode centred around a lonely teenage girl who became obsessed with a robot doll based on her pop idol Ashley O, who was played by Cyrus.

And during her performance at the iHeartRadio festival at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, Cyrus again turned her attention to rock music when she covered Led Zeppelin (opens in new tab)’s Black Dog and Pink Floyd (opens in new tab)’s Comfortably Numb.

Watch her perform the tracks below.

In January, Cyrus covered Chris Cornell’s Two Drink Minimum and Temple Of The Dogs’ Say Hello 2 Heaven at a tribute concert to the late Soundgarden singer – a performance which Metallica (opens in new tab) drummer Lars Ulrich called: “beyond inspiring.”

Other artists playing at the iHeartRadio festival over the weekend included Heart (opens in new tab), Green Day (opens in new tab) and Def Leppard (opens in new tab), with Cyrus also getting the chance to meet Def Leppard backstage at the event.
