Groove Coverage is a German Euro-trance band. The Groove Coverage project consists of Axel Konrad, DJ Novus, Melanie Munch better known as Mell (lead singer), and Verena Rehm (former stage performer, backing singer, occasional lead singer). The band has had hits around the world, especially in Germany, and have had radio play in North America, especially with the song Poison. They have produced popular remixes of several songs, including "Love is an Angel" by Sylver, "Come With Me" by Special D, and "Ass Up!" by Baracuda.

Groove Coverage has published three official albums in Germany, "Covergirl" (2002), "7 Years and 50 Days" (2004) and "21st Century" (2006). They have also published a "Best Of" album (2005), and a special Canadian SPG Music release entitled "Groove Coverage", which includes their greatest hits in Canada. In the United States, they have an album called "Groove Coverage: Greatest Hits".

Several of the band's songs have been cover versions, or reimagined conversions of other songs. Groove Coverage released a cover version of Mike Oldfield's "Moonlight Shadow", as well as a dance cover of Alice Cooper's "Poison". In their most recent album, "21st Century", they released a version of Bad Religion's 21st Century Digital Boy, titled "21st Century Digital Girl". This used the same basic format of the previous version, but changed the lyrics to reflect the difference in the eponymous subject of the song (referring to things like breast implants and Botox injections).

The group released three singles prior to their most recent album "21st Century":
* "Holy Virgin", an English cover-version of the song "Fata Morgana", originally performed by the Austrian Group Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung in 1986
* "On The Radio", a cover of "Mann im Mond" by Die Prinzen
* "21st Century Digital Girl", a replica to Bad Religion's "21st Century Digital Boy".

Before the release of the first single, another Groove Coverage-track named "On the Radio" was leaked to internet file sharing platforms in several different versions. This song was not the track of the same name from the album. This was an attempt to hinder file sharing of the actual single by "poisoning" the networks with a different song of the same name. The decoy track appears on the album under the title of "Let it Be".

On the 14th of August 2007, the group announced on their website that a new single and album will be released soon. Also, the music video for the new single will be shot on the 3rd of October and on the 6th.

The group are currently working on their next album which is due to be released in 2009. The new single was due to be released in autumn 2008 but has been postponed to winter.
