Easy and quick topic. Favorite cover songs.
I have a new favorite and I wanted to make a topic in celebration
Which is weird because I'm honestly not a huge fan of Metallica. ( Blasphemy I know ) And yet I have quite a few covers of their music on my itunes. Mostly Apocalyptica, this cover however is my new fav mostly because I had no idea it existed. I found it by accident thanks to the youtube "related videos" bar. The song starts at around fifty seven seconds in.
I followed that link thinking, "Please don't be Metallica's cover of 'Loverman.'"
I think my favorite is still Nomeansno's a capella cover of Dead Kennedys' "Forward to Death."
Love covers. Especialy Metallica covers. Thanks for that.
Some of my faves:
1. Plays Metallica By Four Cellos - Apocalyptica
2. Rock and Roll (Led Zep IV) - Jerry Lee Lewis
3. Immigrant Song - Trent Reznor, Karen O
4. Bad Moon Rising - Rasputina
5. Stone cold Crazy (by Queen) - Metallica
87 Human Rogue
5. Therion - Summer Night City (ABBA cover)
4. Van Canto - Rebellion (Grave Digger cover)
3. Rhapsody - Power of thy Swrd (Manowar cover)
2. Leave's Eyes - To France (Mike Oldfield) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-lyEEa3_08
1. Nightwish - Phantom of the Opera (I prefer it over the original sountrack)
the Puppini Sisters do "retro" style covers of modern songs
i also enjoy nearly all of Al Yankovic's parody songs

No Hands by Danny Vola.
There's something about a white dude doing an acoustic version of a terrible rap song thats just hilarious. It actually sounds good too.

New fav. I didn't see it on the youtube account. ( Stupid weak eyes )
Now this song sounds like the perfect song to get "pity drunk" to. Just to get hammered and hug people. Sometimes we all want that.
( Also it's cute how the singer says Creep and Weirdo. Sneaky accent. )
Devo - EZ Listening Disc (and yes, the whole thing)
Heartbreak Hotel - Stan Freberg
The Great Pretender - Stan Freberg
Ring of Fire - Frank Zappa
Robot Chicken: Star Wars Theme
Hurdy Gurdy Man - Butthole Surfers
What I can think of at the moment.

EASILY. it's how you properly do a cover. Enough of the original vibe to keep some familiarity, enough of the new to make it feel different, but awesome all around and does the song justice.

POD did a cover of the song Eyes of a Stranger by the Canadian band, The Payolas. Worth checking out:
Mudvayne cover of King of Pain by The Police:

My all time favorite cover is Johnny Cash's version of the Nine Inch Nail's song 'Hurt"
Persia White covering Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit which was an anti-slavery song.
