for any massive attack fans; mark lanegan and greg dulli do a great cover of "live with me".

dream theater's version of "Achilles Last Stand" is great.

"hey joe" was mentioned, but "hush" from deep purple was also a cover, both were very solid.

johnny cash's version of "hurt" also has to be mentioned.

a few others:

"blue monday"(new order) covered by orgy.
"dead souls"(joy division) covered by NIN.
"ceremony"(joy division) covered by galaxie 500.

Dream Theater has an album with a few nice covers. They're also live, but the quality is perfect, and all the members are at the top of their game, especially James LaBrie the singer.

Dream Theater - Perfect Strangers (Deep Purple)
Dream Theater - Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding (Elton John)


Edit: The poster above me mentioned Achilles' Last Stand/The Rover as well, from the same album. They're just amazing musicians, so songs like these don't even phase them, and they like to add their little touch without changing the fundamentals of the songs.

Nothing Compares To U is actually decent when it's covered by The Stereophonics

You Belong To Me by Lifehouse

Good call on the Gob cover

Under My Thumb by Streetheart

Creep by U2 is decent

What a Wonderful World by The Ramones

I liked TV Carpio for I want to Hold Your Hand

Maggie's Farm by Rage

"Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails covered by Johnny Cash is pretty good. Btw, Carey is saying in an interview that it's the first song he's learning on his guitar.

Stereophonics are gold at covering songs. Great band, I love them since they opened for Our Lady Peace in 2001.

Their version of Neil Young's Heart of Gold:


Foo Fighters "Best of You"


Prince/Sinead O'connor "Nothing Compares"


Rolling Stones "Angie"


Beatles "Don't Let Me Down"

they've actually covered whole albums; deep purple's made in japan, and pink floyd's dark side of the moon being another. there were more, but i can't remember the rest.

Ooh, good topic. I've got a shedload of covers at home, can't remember most of them now though. I'll go through them later and post what I can find.

The original version by the Leaves was folk music style. IMO Body Count is the best cover, though Jimmy's bass riff is superb.
The Offspring also did a cover of Hey Joe. It's on the Nitro Records (Dexter's label) compilation 'Go Ahead Punk, Make My Day'.

Metallica deserve 2nd place for this then. 3rd place goes to Spinefarm Records for this. Some awesome covers on that last one, the TOC version of Smoke on the Water is one of my favourite covers. It's Smoke on the Water, but played at about 10 times the speed It also has Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Children of Bodom, Ensiferum, Warmen and Tarot on there. Double

Great cover by a great band. Have you heard their other covers? The ones I can recall are: Fade to Black, Wind Beneath My Wings, Two Minds One Soul, Out in the Fields, World In My Eyes, Die With Your Boots On, I Want Out. Not sure if there are any more.

Honestly, heavier/faster cover versions are just too easy, no?

Isn't it better when the cover artist really changes the feel of song?

Ray Charles (Beatles)- Elenor Rigby
Stevie Wonder (Beatles)- We Can Work It Out
Sister's of Mercy (The Stones)- Gimme Shelter
Smashing Pumpkins (Depeche Mode)- Never Let Me Down Again
311 (the Cure)- Lovesong

I love a good cover too.

I think I am going to buy some Sterophonics.... I only have the "Don't Let me Down" cover so far.

Keep 'em coming.

The Beatles covering Please Mr. Postman is the greatest cover of all time. Period!

Neil Young covering Four Strong Winds is second.

Sonic Youth covering Within You Without You by the Beatles is third.

EDIT: Crap, totally forgot, If Not For You by George Harrison actually may be the best cover ever.

I was wondering, about the song Woodstock played by Crosby Stills nash & Young and Matthews Southern Comfort, which one of these band covered the other?

I like the Matthews Southern Comfort version better tho.

Jose Gonzalez, a Sweedish/Argentinian singer/song-writer has made a bit of a name for himself lately as a cover artist. He has a knack for picking really random songs and putting his own distinct spin on them. I'll just steal this from wikipedia:

"Heartbeats" by The Knife, "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division, "Born in the U.S.A." by Bruce Springsteen, and "The Ghost of Tom Joad" by Bob Dylan, "Hand on Your Heart" by Kylie Minogue, "Smalltown Boy" by Bronski Beat, "Teardrop" by Massive Attack and "Last Snowstorm of the Year" by Low.

Anyone who can cover Joy Division, Dylan, Springsteen, Kylie Minogue and Massive Attack and have it all come out sounding like him is doing something right, imo. I particularly enjoyed his covers of Love Will Tear Us Apart and Teardrop. Teardrop made it on one of his albums, LWTUA is only on his Australian Tour EP, as far as I know.

Another cover I really like is "Oh My God" by Mark Ronson and Lilly Allen. The original is a Kaiser Chiefs (great band btw) track, which has a real indie-rock vibe. Lilly's version is more of a soulful, female vocalist sort of vibe.

Yeah I have no problems with cover bands like Led Zepplica or Australian Pink Floyd that play the original tracks. What I hate are bands that remake old popular songs into some techno bullsh!t. You just CAN'T do that.

Has anyone heard the Strapping Young Lad cover of What's New *****cat? Devin was talking about it on the bonus DVD that came with the Alien album, but I don't know if it ever saw the light of day.

Also, if anyone wants to check out one of the weirder covers I can think of, check out Earthlings cover of Johnny B Goode. Be warned though, if you do give it a listen, be prepared to ask 'Why?'

Right, here are a few metal/punk covers for those interested:

After Forever - Who Wants To Live Forever
Arthemis - I Wanna Rock
Avantasia - Lay All Your Love On Me
Children Of Bodom - Aces High, Rebel Yell, She Is Beautiful, The Trooper, Lookin Out My Back Door
Clawfinger - Vienna
Dream Evil - My Number One
Ensiferum - Battery
Fear Factory - Cars
Fu Manchu - Jailbreak, Six Pack
Guns N Roses - Live And Let Die
Machine Head - Negative Creep
Pantera - Electric Funeral
Racer X - Children Of The Grave
Rhapsody - Guardians
Rush - Summertime Blues
Sinergy - Hanging On The Telephone, Rock You Like A Hurricane, The Number of the Beast
Static x - Behind the Wall Of Sleep, Burning Inside
System of a Down - Snowblind, The Metro
Warmen - Alone, Somebody's Watching Me

A - Owner of A Lonely Heart
AFI - My Michelle
Dropkick Murphy's - Amazing Grace
Jughead's Revenge - Just What I Needed
Less Than Jake - Greased soundtrack
Misfits - Monster Mash
Offspring - Hey Joe, I Wanna Be Sedated, Totalimmortal
Pennywise - Astro Zombies, I Get Around, Surfing USA
The Vandals - Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy, Sheena is a Punk Rocker

Those are some of the best I have, although there are probably plenty more I could find if I dig deep enough into my collection

I agree.

I've seen the Australian Pink Floyd show, it was great, except fot the cheesy 3d animation. There is also this band, eclipse I think, who do an homage show at the Medley, they're pretty good.

And I don't have a youtube link for it, but Primus also do one hell of cover of La Villa Strangiato from RUSH. You can always buy it from their website. There is also a cover of Hello Skinny by The Residents during Too Many Puppies in that show.
