This is probably my favorite cover too. I love me some Disturbed.

@Sick_J0ke: I agree with you on that. Great cover

I like Framing Hanley's cover of Lollipop.

Metallica really killed it, the cover is infinitely better than the original.

Stone Cold Crazy, Turn the Page, and Tuesdays Gone are all cover songs that Metallica knocked out of the park.

#25 Edited by Demodocus (284 posts) -

I doubt anyone will agree with me but......


Its a cover of Black Sabbath's Snowblind
#26 Posted by PufferFiz (1470 posts) -

Pretty Much every song on this CD but I have to say that this song is one of my favorites


#27 Posted by Bruce (6238 posts) -

Vanished by Crystal Castles for those who don't know is a heavily sampled remix of Van She's Sex City


As for straight up covers, here are some of my favorites.

1. The Clash - I Fought the Law/Brand New Cadillac/Police on my Block
The Clash owned every fucking cover they ever did.
2. Roxy Music - Jealous Guy
Better than the John Lennon version IMO
3. Arcade Fire - Keep the Car Running
Springsteen must have wrote this one ^_-

There's a ton more, but I don't have time for all of them.
#28 Posted by Peloquin (33 posts) -

Awesome songs all, cheers :) haven't heard a lot of these.

Had to put up one more...Placebo

Best cover ever, for sure!
#30 Posted by Sick_J0ke (192 posts) -
@Peloquin: Glad you liked the video. Are you from the UK btw? Cuz I hear alot of people from there say "cheers" so I've been coming to the assumption that it's a UK thing. Either that or it originated from there.

I've never heard that cover before, pretty good.

Here's another great Pixies cover, from Weezer this time.

#33 Posted by TheGreatGuero (8882 posts) -

All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix is easily my favorite.

#34 Posted by Nick (789 posts) -

Another Good one, Foo FIghters covering the song Baker Street.

#35 Posted by Peloquin (33 posts) -
@Sick_J0ke: Am Irish living in Australia at the moment :) ...you're right "Cheers" is totally an English thing though....but well adopted but other places at this stage.

This is one of mine.
#37 Posted by MB (14423 posts) -

Tool's cover of Led Zeppelin's No Quarter.

#38 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4941 posts) -
#39 Edited by BiffMcBlumpkin (3808 posts) -

Zeppelin's is better.

Not a big Pantera fan but their Planet Caravan is OK I guess. Not half as good as Sabbath's though.

#46 Posted by Karmum (11515 posts) -

I thought Gary Jules' cover of Mad World was pretty solid. I don't listen to many cover songs, though.

Nirvana - The man who sold world,  The Ramones -  Have you ever seen the rain

OK, seriously, cover versions are never as good as the original. I can't think of one that I like.
#49 Posted by Einherjan (607 posts) -

Jeff Buckley's version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

#50 Edited by Suicrat (3829 posts) -
Anyone who denies that this is the best cover of any song in the history of mankind can go fuck themselves as far as I'm concerned.
