Default Good cover songs

Well not that a scorpion covered in more scorpions aren't awesome but I thought we could use a lighter topic thread. Good cover songs... you know they exist so let's share.

Ran across this one the other day. I love it. I guess it's considered to be viral right now.

Also two covers which were vast improvements IMHO from the originals

I like Evergreen Terrace's cover of Xero, and Marilyn Manson's cover of Tainted Love... and I like Me First & the Gimme Gimmes' version of "Goodbye Earl" much better than the Dixie Chicks' lol

That kid has some talent. I'm curious to check out his other stuff.

I'm with you on the VH cover, but as much as I like Cash, I don't think he beats out NIN. At least not for me

I don't think Anthrax can improve on Maiden ever Love both, but Maiden is in a different league I think, and I have tickets to see them twice this summer. Pretty happy about that.

Anyway, DMB's remake of All along the watchtower has always been one of my favorites live.

I always the GnR's Knocking on Heaven's Door was pretty good too.

Very nice to see people with actual talent. I've never been able to sing well, the only time i'm good is when the music is up very loud and i swear i sound just like the guys in the band.

I'm not much of an a capella person when I want music to listen to, but that takes some serious talent to do that.

I prefer Motley Crue's version of Helter Skelter to the Beatles' version.

And just to strip my gears by shifting genre's Jimmy Buffett's "Mele Kalikimaka" is better than Bing's

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IdDfI2aLV8

I'm going to disagree with Kat completely on two of hers in the OP. The Van Halen "You Really Got Me" is good, but I prefer The Kinks on that. Also, Joe Cocker's "A Little Help From My Friends" might just be the worst cover ever done. If it comes on the radio, I change the station.
