Your Favorite Cover Songs?

I think some covers can really bring new life into a song. What are your favorite cover songs? I’m looking for ones that mixed it up, not just played the original. Here are my top 3:

Hayley Reinhart and PMJs incredibly powerful rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep”

Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged cover of Lead Belly’s “Where did you sleep last night”. Has quite the crescendo in it.

And last but not least, Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails “Hurt”. Just a masterpiece.

I don’t like Nirvana but the original song from Leadbelly is great (and I have the original vynil record). I don’t like Johnny Cash but the original song from Nine Inch Nails is great.

I like this one :

and I even did a coverception based on this version

Not a fan of that one (and Disturbed in general).
I prefer covers that add something different to the original… A bit like this one :laughing:

One of the best parts of a Metallica concert is when Rob and Kirk do a cover of a local song

That’s a bit like burning the :us_outlying_islands: in the USA :joy:

There are quite a lot of ABBA covers online…

He didn’t change it from the original, but Jaco took Charlie Parker’s Donna Lee and turned it into a bass solo.

What does Britney Slayes do after the show? Go to a karaoke bar and do Queensryche
