The Misfits gets a little incomprehensible in this live version of Mommy can I go out and kill tonight, but they ain't got shit on these dudes:
This topic is locked from further discussion.
@Mirado: Best one yet!Partly because the song is awesome in its own right.
Partly because of the way they sing 'biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'.
Partly because of the sick kazoo part.
Partly because it reminds me of Wing.
edit: after listening to Wing's version of Beat It, I want to publicly apologize to the people of Japan for the comments I made earlier.
My favorite "odd" cover song.
I'll recycle an answer from another thread to cover (ha!) the rest...
The Gourds cover of "Gin and Juice" is my personal favorite since it's so different from the original but still entertaining.
I listed a bunch more on these older threads (I'm on page two of each).

Other cover song threads:
@DudeOlav: I keep thinking they're adding an extra word or they sing a different line every time I hear them go "Biiiii!!!!" ("Letter be, Lady bee, let it be free, oh let it be meeeeee"), which only adds to the charm.
I made a mix for a friend of mine that just contained all sorts of hilarious/awesome foreign covers:
Dead or Alive's "You Spin me Right Round (Like a Record)".......in Icelandic:
Aqua's "Barbie Girl" in Russian....and after inhaling a massive amount of helium. (Actually, this one is kinda accurate, oddly enough)
And finally, "Another One Bites the Dust" in Tagalog. I really love this one, the singer's unflinching resolve to make his language "work" rather then "fit" is admirable. (I think part of that comes from the fact that he is a comedian, but you should have seen the look on my friend's face when I sprung this one on him.)
I got one or two more winners around here somewhere, let me see if I can dig them up.
