There are far too many great covers to narrow this down! Here are the first that spring to mind.

The Breeders-Happiness Is A Warm Gun (the Beatles)
Red House Painters-Shock Me (kiss)
The Pixies-I've Been Waiting For You (Neil)
US Maple-Lay Lady Lay (Dylan)
Bedhead-Disorder (Joy Division)
Enon-White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane)
Archers of Loaf-Funnelhead (Tree People)
Silkworm-Ooh La La (The Faces)
Nirvana-Man Who Sold The World(bowie)
Dinosaur Jr-Just Like Heaven (cure)
John Cale-Hallelujah
Jawbox-Cornflake Girl (Tori Amos)
Codeine-Atmosphere
Greg Dulli-If Only I Had A Heart (Wizard of Oz Soundtrack)

Sox, we have incredibly similar taste in music. It is actually scary. I am almost thinking that someone is playing a prank on me.

Enon-White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane)

Whoa what.
Also, I've never really thought much of that "Just Like Heaven" cover. It's different enough to be its own thing, but inevitably I stop part way through the song and play the original.

1: Joan Baez - "Let It Be" (originally by The Beatles, durrr)
2: Anberlin - "Love Song" (originally by The Cure)
3: Shinedown - "Simple Man" (originally by Lynard Skynard; usually I hate both of these bands, but dudefromShinedown's wail is so delicious.)
4: Nirvana - "The Man Who Sold The World" (originally by David Bowie)
5: Placebo - "Running Up That Hill" (originally by Kate Bush. Oh, God, this song is... hlblhlblhlblhlblhblhb. His voice is a little irritating, but the beat is so pulsing and haunting.)

I love covers of really bad songs that make me think things I never thought would enter my mind, like "I really want to listen to Barbie Girl right now." Hence the top 3:

1.Tsunami Bomb - "Barbie Girl" (orignally by Aqua)
2. 30 Seconds to Mars - "Stronger" ("originally" by Kanye West)
3. Bouncing Souls - "I Know What Boys Like" (Originally by Waitresses...i think)
4. Les Claypool's Frog Brigade - "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" (Pink Floyd)
5. Lacuna Coil - "Enjoy the Silence" (Depeche Mode)

Name a song done by Manfred Mann's Earth Band.


There you go. Thread over.


Of course, Tom Jones' cover of Ring of Fire should count.
Also, Project Chaos.


Oh, and some guy did a recitation of Like a Rolling Stone. It might have been Willie Rushton but I'm not sure as I never did get to see to whom it was credited.

Dude, Tom Jones’ best cover is when he did Portishead.  :laugh:

Top five, aphabetical by artist:

Babyland – “Burning Up” (Madonna)
Cibo Matto – “The Candy Man” (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory)
Coil – “Tainted Love” (Gloria Jones)
The Fire Show – “You Are My Sunshine” (traditional)
The Slits – “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” (Gladys Knight & the Pips / Marvin Gaye)

Honorable mentions:
¨The Dandy Warhols – “Ohio” (Neil Young)
Ministry – “Smothered Hope” (Skinny Puppy)
Revolting Cocks – “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” (Rod Stewart)
¨Soft Cell – “Tainted Love” (Gloria Jones)
Super Furry Animals ¨– “Calimero” (tv theme song)

For a while, I seriously thought it was impossible to screw up a cover of “Tainted Love.”  Then Marilyn Manson covered it.

*edit* Shit, I forgot that Slits cover is fucking awesome.

I don't usually approve of John Mayer, but I cannot deny the greatness of his version of Kid A.  Maybe I just like it because I never really thought about Kid A as being played on accoustic guitar. :/

No order to these:

No Quarter - Tool (Led Zep original)
When the Levee Breaks - A Perfect Circle (cover of the Led Zep version, first written by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie)
Imagine - A Perfect Circle (John Lennon original)
All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix (Bob Dylan original)
Planet Caravan - Pantera (Black Sabbath original)

Also there was a good shout for "Enjoy the Silence - Lacuna Coil (Depeche Mode original)" better than the original imo.

Gliss - Rhinceros (the Smashing Pumpkins)

Cat Power - I Found A Reason (Velvet Underground)

Iron & Wine - Such Great Heights (The Postal Service)

the Doors - Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) (Brecht/Weill)

New Order - Ceremony (Joy Division) ...you may argue this distinction.

....and of course this needs to be seen by everybody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WWuZRd-O3c

In no particular order

Fear Factory - Cars (Gary Numan)

Destruction - Whiplash (Metallica) - ok, this one technically isnt a "new take" as its a thrash band covering a thrash band, but Destruction actually SPED THE SONG UP.

Tiamat - Sympathy for the Devil (Rolling Stones)

Type O Negative - Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young)

Stahlhammer - Der Mann Mit Dem Koks (Falco)

I'll never understand why they didn't put it on Lunafied, but it was on Days of Our Nights and an otherwise quite awful compilation called.... "Sleepytime Songs" or some shit.  You can probably find it online.

Joshua Radin's excellent cover of Only You by Yazoo.

Michael Bublé's cover of Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love (I cannot emphasise enough just how awesome this is).

HIM's cover of Chris Issack's Wicked Game

Coldplay's live cover (i think at glastonbury) or Kylie's Can't Get You Out OF my Head.  Pure brilliance, on a stick.
