Recommended Posts

I'm a sucker for a cover song, I have to admit, so lets see what everyone thinks are the best cover songs.

My favorite cover of all time is Metallica's cover of Bob Seger's Turn The Page, I don't know if it gets much better than that. Some others that I like:

Limp Bizkit -- Behind Blue Eyes by The Who

Shinedown -- Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Cake -- Warpigs by Black Sabbath

Nonpoint -- In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins

Frank Zappa - Whippin' Post by the Allman Bros. Band

Gov't Mule - Soulshine by the Allman Bros. Band

Faith No More - War Pigs by Black Sabbath (funny how we both had this one, but with different cover bands)

Since you mentioned Cake, I loved their cover of " I will survive"

In parts it sounded like Christopher Walken.:P

I liked the Ataris version of Skid Row " I remember you"

Johnny Cash' cover of "Won't back down" and "hurt" were both great.

And I love this cover of sweet child O mine both for it's complete goofiness and the singers " axelisms":P

I think the band is Dynamite Boy.

The Skid Row cover I spoke of is NOT the one on this site, BTW.

Faith No More - Easy Like Sunday Morning

Pearl Jam - Masters of War

Built to Spill - Cortez the Killer

Cat Power - I Found a Reason

Cat Power - Troubled Waters

Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane

Feist - Inside and Out

Phish - Crosseyed and Painless

The Faith No more cover was awesome. Nearly note for note.

Jimi Hendrix -- All Along The Watchtower by Bob Dylan

Here's Hendrix owning on another Bob Dylan song:

Hendrix - Like a Rolling Stone

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGy_7qTvjDs

Yeah Hendrix and Dylan were close friends. Dylan called the death of Jimi Hendrix the biggest rain cloud in rock history. Jimi Hendrix also did a cover of Dylan's The Hurricane but I can't find it anywhere.

This is easy for me.

Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson is up there with Tool and Rob Zombie as far as putting on the best live show.

I thought Tool's last show @ the Gwinnett Center was awful. Manson's show before the last one at HiFi Buys was ok, but nothing compared to The Tabernacle.
