Since we have a thread about bands who got famous for cover songs, I'd like to present you with some of my favorite cover songs.

This one is good but not quite up to par with the original. Sill pretty cool, though.

Metallica "The Wait" (Killing Joke)
Small | Large


I think this next one supasses the original. Michael Gira's cover is quite good too.

Swans - "Love Will Tear Us Apart" (Joy Division)
Small | Large


Another Swans (under the moniker of Skin) cover, this time it's "I Wanna Be Your Dog" (The Stooges)
Small | Large


Jesu covering Pink Floyd's "Capter 24"
Small | Large


Can't think of anymore at the moment.

Children of Bodom's Aces high is good, if you're a melodeath metal fan (Except Arch Enemy's version, which sucks! Hatred)

And two different versions of Fear of the Dark

As a general rule I detest all cover songs. There are very rare exceptions.

The Cowboy Junkies cover of Sweet Jane is halfway decent. I just like the lazy feel and the spare production.

The Talking Heads cover of Take Me to the River by Al Green and "Teenie" Hodges is outstanding.

Even though I particularly hate it when a band tries to make a punk or metal version of an old song, I actually like the Iron Maiden cover of Jethro Tull's Cross-Eyed Mary better than the original.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
