Great songs. Great covers.

Some of my faves:

I've never heard anyone but Peter Gabriel do Solsbury Hill before. That version's pretty good!

I don’t know that I would count this as a favorite per se, or even add it to a personal playlist for that matter, but I think it deserves some props for style.

- 10 Second Songs/Metallica - Enter Sandman (David Bowie Style Remix):

And a couple new personal favorites...

- D0VYDAS / Jimi Hendrix - Along the Watchtower:

- D0VYDAS / Jimi Hendrix - Purple Rain:

Help me; I got on YouTube and I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole!

- Heimatdamisch / Guns n Roses - Sweet Child o’ Mine:

I don't know if these fall within the parameters of proper Great Songs, Great Covers, but they are definitely covers and I find myself falling down a "WTF did I just watch/listen to?!" rabbit hole of heavy metal mariachi...

It's not new, but I figured I'd share. I like this one better than the original

Don't tell Tim I said so, but ... there's no getting around it, this is waaaay better

One of my favorite covers, that somehow manages to make a Morrissey song even more depressing...

This is pretty cute:

I've kind of fallen in love with Ska Tune Network.

There's ska covers of songs:

Ska covers of movie soundtracks:

And a lot of ska covers of videogame songs:

NoFX - Straight Edge

nice. I'll add:

so, I'm totally late to the Waxahatchee party, but better late than never:

I know there are, like, a million great covers of this song, and this one is just a short piece from a soundcheck, but that almost makes it more haunting; the girlfriend who took me to the Erasure show from earlier in the thread got to see them sometime in the 90s, and she described it as a giant fishbowl; to me this evokes the beauty and desperation of those barely remembered times:

and just saw this on the Dropkick Murphys' livestream, and aren't covers the best for getting shalalm baskur'ed? most of my posts in this thread say they are! ; D

double edit: forgot this last track was totally NSFW, so best to leave it out.

Oh yeah. Rancid and NOFX did that split LP years ago where they covered each other’s songs. I remember really liking NOFX’s version of The Girl with the Heart of Gold. I use to wonder if the song was a reference to Trillian from the Hitchhiker’s Guide stories. Still not sure.

Just stumbled across this one in my news feed this morning. Big fan of System of a Down to begin with, but this cover sounds like a perfect fit for the next season of The Witcher (which, of course, is AWESOME).

I don't know I went this long without ever knowing about this cover, but I'm in love with it now.
