    Favorite Cover Songs

    Advertisement



    OK.. since music seems to be a recurring theme here and I tend to like modern, rock-ier (is that a word) covers of older songs I figured I'd start a thread for your favorite cover songs...

    Here's some of mine...

    Sympathy For The Devil - Rolling Stones > Guns N' Roses
    Psycho Killer - Talking Heads > Velvet Revolver
    Turn the Page - Bob Segar > Metallica
    In My Life - Beatles > Ozzy Osbourne
    Jersey Girl - Tom Waits > Bruce Springsteen
    The Boys of Summer - Don Henley > The Ataris
    Shameless - Billy Joel > Garth Brooks
    I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor > Cake
    Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers > DMX

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    Sleep Now In The Fire - Rage Against The Machine > Audioslave
    Curtains - Elton John > Jeff Buckley
    Thousand Fold - Elton John > Jeff Buckley
    Fairwell Angelina - Bob Dylan > Jeff Buckley (IMHO everything he covered turned out better than the original.)
    Billie Jean - Michael Jackson > Chris Cornell
    About A Girl - Nirvana > Cibo Matto
    White Room - Cream >Demons & Wizards
    How I Could Just Kill A Man - Cypress Hill > Rage Against The Machine
    Girl You Want - Devo > Soundgarden

    Oddly enough, my current ringtone is Ain't No Sunshine (original Bill Withers version).

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Life is a Highway- Joe Cocker > rascal flatts

    You Really Got Me - (not certain of original) > Van Halen

    All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan > Jimi Hendrix

    Planet Caravan - Black Sabbath > Pantera

    Gin and Juice - Snoop Doggy Dogg > String Cheese Incident (or Blues Traveler, depending on who is doing it at the time...various differing opinions exist as to whose idea it was and who was recorded. At any rate, it's a bluegrass rendition of stellar quality and enormous musical and humorous value.)

    They performed for the Live In Cuba concert. I like it better than the Rage version .

    How's about this one:

    I Want To Know What Love Is - Foreigner > Clay Aiken

    You might like Iron Horse's "tribute" to Metallica titled Fade To Bluegrass. It's good listenings and a fun way to piss your friends off when they want to hear heavy music. (It's bluegrass renditions of stellar quality and enormous musical and humorous value.)

    Maybe. But I'll see your VI cover and raise you The Used's cover of Under Pressure. And I think Queen did the original, with Bowie on backing vocals, IIRC.
