    Good Cover Songs

    Now a days alot of bands have resorted to covering older songs.
    What are some that stand out in your opinion?

    I like:
    Life of Agony: Don't you forget about me
    The Ataris: Boys of summer
    P.O.T. USA: Video Killed The Radio Star
    GNR: Live and Let Die
    Primus: Have a Cigar

    This is the first song I thought of. I love this cover.

    Metallica: Am I Evil?

    ...I'm drawing a blank now. argh.
    "No one helped me so why should I help you?" - College professor circa 1999

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I'm in love with the women of Univision.

    I also like Pearl Jams master of War cover from the Bob Dylan tribute. STP also did a good cover of Zepplin's Dancin' Days.

    I like when Metallica covered Seger's Turn The Page

    Camper Van Beethoven - Pictures of Matchstick Men is one of the best covers of all time. Absolutely crushes Ozzy's version. They also do a mean version of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk.

    Tori Amos did a great version of Smells like teen Spirit on the Crucify single. Also a good version of Zeppelin's Thank You there.

    Phish did an incredible job of covering the Beatles ENTIRE White Album on Halloween in 1994.

    Jane's Addiction's cover of the Dead's Ripple on Deadication is awesome as well.

    On the other hand, IMO, one of the all-time WORST covers would have to be Metallica's take on Whiskey in the Jar. Poor selection that just sounds terrible and eerily out of place.

    RHCP - higher ground
    Cake - i will survive
    Ike & Tina Turner - proud mary
    Shonen Knife - top of the world

    Metallica does lots of covers, i prefer stone cold crazy.

    Metallica's version of Stone Cold Crazy is great.
    David Lee Roth's "California Girls"
    Robert Plant sang "Crazy little thing called love" on the Wayne's World 2 soundtrack.
    Jimi Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower" is my vote for the best cover ever. Even Bob Dylan said it was better than his version.
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    True, I forget that it is a Dylan song. Hendrix ruled that one. A real funny cover is Mr. Bungles Hit me baby One more Time. I never laughed so hard.
