    another good choice. i had to hunt so hard to find salival in the uk and i could only get the video version. another really good song on that cd is 'you lied' which i believe is a cover of a song by peach (justin chancellor's band before he joined).

    Arctangent, agreed on the 'pistols covers, what a trainwreck, almost as shameless as the originals, and why bother if that's the case???
    And RAMONES by Motorhead, which was a sort of fake cover, that became a real cover, that tune is Awesome (best thing about catscratch fever is how Lemmy changed the lyrics cos he thought they were too crude )

    Oh, Big Sugar's version of Crosstown Traffic (Hendrix) and their cover of "Dear Mr Fantasy" are fun (the Traffic version done with mega feedback and stuff, totally sweet)

    Butthole Surfers "Sweat Loaf", sort of a cover, funny as heck

    Manowar doing "Sting of the Bumblebee", "William's Tale" or their recent cover of Elvis' "An American Trilogy"

    there's more, soooo many in fact
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    Their cover of Nessun Dorma is actually really good as well. Manowar rocks.

    Metallica and the PET SHOP BOYS have improved upon every cover they have ever done.

    Guns 'N Roses cover of SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is unfriggin' unbelievably cool.

    Janes Addictions version is way better.

    Re: Best/Worst remakes or covers?

    Must agree about Jane's Addiction to Sympathy for the Devil....incredible!

    Let's not forget one of the kings of covers......Joe Cocker! I just love when he does a cover!

    I will agree with alot of the best covers...
    GNR "Knockin on Heaven's Door"
    Alien Ant Farm "Smooth Criminal"
    U2 "Helter Skelter"
    etc.

    but let me throw in a few odd ones.....

    Billy Idol "Don't Forget about me" good
    Vanilla Ice "Ice Ice Baby" horrible (I acutually liked this one until I found out it was him doing a cover of himself!!!!!)

    That Jessica Simpson cover of Take My Breath Away is terrible.

    Metallica has not improved upon every cover they've done. Their MF medley is good but nothing could ever top Fate doing those songs . . . if Hetfield would have refrained from trying to sing King's lyrics and just left it as an instrumental, it would be an even better tribute.
    I like their Last Caress cover but I'll take the Misfits version any day.

    joe cockers version of with a little help from my friends is pretty good, better than the beatles original infact imo.

    guns n roses cover of knocking on heavens door just summed up evrything that went wrong with them, however. axl hasn't got the voice to pull it off - clapton's version is way better. someone should have taken axl aside and said 'knocking on heavens door? november rain? just say no to dodgy covers and crap ballads and get on with doing what you're best at'

    and fear factory's cover of nirvana's school from their new album gives it a well deserved of a kick up the arse !

    Re: Best/Worst remakes or covers?

    Met improving on covers, I would like to bring up the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds song, "Loverman." Not really a great cover at all. Though I do understand Hetfield choosing to cover the song, he's a Cave fan and I know that sparked interest in fans to check out Nick Cave. Still not a great cover, though.

    But they did perform as "the Lemmys" for Lemmy's 50th birthday party, so that makes up for the Nick Cave thing. Who cares if it was three years before they covered Loverman, honoring Lemmy makes up for anything.

    Now to eagerly await hearing the cover Motorhead recorded of Whiplash...

    they looked pretty funny all dressed up as lemmy ! i didn't know motörhead had recorded a cover of whiplash - should make interesting listening.

    another of my favourite covers i have just thought of is 1000 homo dj's version of sabbath's 'supernaut'.
