Great thread!  I love a great cover of a great song.    

 

Here are some by Billy Idol.  He does some of the best covers out there.

 

Billy Idol's cover of a song that was originally written for him but he originally turned it down (confusing, right?).  So the band Simple Minds was chosen to do the song instead.

 

Billy Idol - Don't You (Forget About Me) 

 

Original:

Simple Minds - Don't You (Forget About Me) 

 

Another fantastic cover by Billy Idol.  This one is originally by Tommy James & The Shondells from back in 1968

 

Billy Idol - Mony Mony

Another fantastic cover by the man himself, a cover from the legendary band The Doors.

 

Billy Idol - L.A. Woman

Pitchshifter's cover of St. Anger. It is immensely better than the Metallica original IMHO.

Van Halen's fantastic cover of "You Really Got Me" by The Kinks.  The DLR era of Van Halen had many fantastic covers. :cool:

Ghost's cover of Eurthymics' "Missionary Man", Metallica's cover of Bob Seger's "Turn the Page", Metallica's cover of Diamond Head's "Am I Evil?" and Motorhead's cover of Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever". I'm sure there's more but I'm having a brain fart at the moment.
