Seeing as how someone did a worst cover songs post, I might as well do a best cover song post.
My favorites are Cradle Of Filths cover of "Hallowed be thy Name", Dead Kennedys "Viva Las Vegas", AFI's "Demonmania", Marilyn Manson's "I put a spell on you."

DAN HICKS wrote a song and recorded it with DAN HICKS & HIS HOT LICKS "I Scare Myself" (it's on Striking It Rich) which was covered a decade later by THOMAS DOLBY on his second full album, The Flat Earth.  It's a good song, fully realized by HICKS but completely humorous in his hands, and transformed into a forlorn observation with a heartbreakingly subtle late-night arrangement that haunts dreams... THOMAS DOLBY is a very talented songwriter, but a superb interpreter....I love that cover, probably my favorite, can't recommend The Flat Earth enough (it's out of print stateside... )

Doro Pesch's version of Whiter Shade of Pale is a good one for starters.  Then there's Glenn Tipton's cover of Paint it Black.

Metallica did a great cover of Diamond Head's Helpless on the Garage Days EP. They really butchered Thin Lizzy's Whiskey In The Jar, though.

Thin Lizzy's "Whiskey in a Jar" is itself a cover of an old Irish folk song.  I haven't heard their version but my favorite rendition is by a NY bar band called Barleyjuice, who seem to be channeling the Pogues at their peak.

Jazz singer Cassandra Wilson takes the Monkee's poppy "Last Train to Clarksville" and changes it into a sultry, sexy ballad.  Quite an accomplishment.

I like anything written by U2 better as a cover.  Dale Ann Bradley's bluegrass version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," Johnny Cash's "One," and Cassandra Wilson (again) doing "Love is Blindness."

Hard to believe no one mentioned Sid Vicious' "My Way" yet....

And speaking of the Sex Pistols, an honorable mention goes to the version of "Johhny B. Goode" where Rotten forgets the lyrics, segues into "Roadrunner" instead, and ends the cut with "Does anybody know any other f***in' Beatles songs we can do?"

A few come to mind...
"Got to Get You into My Life" by Earth, Wind, and Fire
Michael Buble's recent cover of the Spider-Man theme
Mama Green's "Drift Away"
Nightwish's "Phantom of the Opera"
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes has an entire library of interesting covers.

I can't believe I forgot Testament's cover of "Nobody's Fault" (Aerosmith). Great, great cover.

No one will ever be able to top this version of Gloria Gaynor's disco hit "I Will Survive".
