I know I may be joining a bandwagon, but this is, currently, far more potent and powerful on me than the Children of Bodom/Turisas/Offspring covers that usually bounce around my head.

I think I should have linked WOTE's version of Payphone instead of Trouble.  Way better.  They get points for rewriting the terrible rap bridge, too.

Is it just me, or is "take terrible songs and make them awesome" WOTE's, like, thing?
Oh man, this is fantastic. And we're talking about Maroon 5 here.

If you haven't seen this series of covers, I urge you to check it out, this crazy Dutch guy is amazing! All completely live looped, full of whacky miscellaneous instruments. He also manages to sound a little like Thom Yorke...

Her cover of Enter Sandman is also really good.

A "buttload" is an actual measurement, next time someone tells you that they need a buttload of something, tell them 126 gallons might be a bit too much.

Hmm… Does it fully count as a cover if it's done in collaboration with the original artist?

Honestly, I don't know whose idea it was to make an acoustic instrumental version of the main Sonic 06 theme and put it in the game as the bonus screen music, but he's a goddamn genius. I'd argue that had I been unlucky enough to purchase that game at full price, this and the options menu music alone are easily worth the 60 bucks.

(In case you're wondering, the title of the song is This World, and I'm not entirely sure if it's by Zebrahead, Crush40 or Zebrahead ft. Jun Senoue)

I stumbled upon this one listening to an old John Peel Festive 50 (the yearly event that he rather loathed), and now have it stuck in my head:

Covers that surpass the originals:

Yes - "America" (Simon & Garfunkel)

Iron Maiden - "Cross-Eyed Mary" (Jethro Tull)

Johnny Cash - "Rusty Cage" (Soundgarden)

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - "Blinded by the Light" (Bruce Springsteen)

Any Bob Dylan song performed by anybody who isn't Bob Dylan.

+1 on this.

And I'll add a few of my favourites as well:
Doro "Breaking the Law"
Judas Priest "Green Manalishi (with the two pronged Crown)" & "Diamonds and Rust"

Covers that surpass the originals:
How could I forget this? Deerhoof's awesome cover of "Pour Some Sugar On Me"
They played it live when I saw them in Portland a couple years back (the video here is not from that show.)
