    Kawehi is legendary. Her cover of NIN is amazing.

    ohh, fun topic... three of my favorites from least to most obscure....

    Most folks figure this is the original...


    Love Kawehi's version but prefer this one....


    Deftones covering Duran Duran?... why not?....

    This one is my worst ever because it sounds exactly like what you would expect Duran Duran covering Public Enemy to sound like.
    (and I really like Duran Duran).

    Bit of a guilty pleasure, but I really like the Beautiful South's version of 'Reaper...


    Gorgeous voice...


    No words necessary (um, except these)...


    One of many fun covers of this song...

    Beautiful South should never be a guilty pleasure, even when doing covers.. They were so sharp, it's a wonder that they didn't cut themselves.

    Here's one that really is a bit of a guilty pleasure, mostly for that giant Mickey Finn bassline:



    (..ok, so I might actually be a recovering junglist, having survived the steaming jungles of the 90s south London.. )

    Edit: Youtube whackamole, here's a new copy:

    Wonderful, I nearly posted Tori's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". I wish I could find my copy of the live performance where she segues from "American Pie" into it. Gives me chills.

    This is probably the most horrible cover that I have heard:



    Why "hilarious" one trick pony budget Beegees soundalikes took it upon themselves to murder, sorry, cover one of the most famously epic bits of rock music ever is.. well, it's simply beyond me.

    It is possible to cover Pink Floyd without ruining it...



    ..and while we're at it:



    ..and because some might be wondering how they handled this one:




    (Sorry, that was an epic post, I will let this thread settle down a bit now!)

    Maybe my favorite cover song: David Bowie - Cactus (cover of the Pixies' song)

    Oh, I thought of a cover possibly even more reprehensible than the Scissor Sisters murdering of "Comfortably Numb". The Coldplay version of "Fight For Your Right To Party":

    WARNING: CONTAINS COLDPLAY



    I shan't go off on a huge rant about all the ways in which this is bad and wrong; this post says it all for me.

    How is this possible? This is beyond terrible.

    Time for a good cover that makes you rock out. Too much Coldplay gives you a cold. "Gimme Shelter"...
