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

 

 

Original:

Tommy James & The Shondells - Mony Mony

 

 

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

 

Billy Idol - L.A. Woman

 

 

The Doors - L.A. Woman

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.
