Disturbed's Sound of Silence
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)
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
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
ZZ Top's fantastic cover of Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas".
David Lee Roth's fantastic cover of The Beach Boys "California Girls"
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.
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.
this has gotta' be one of the most underrated covers of all time.
spirit of the original but spun into a whole new genre.
Strangely good tribute band.
Original: Irish Folksong, thought to originate as far back as the 17th century.
Damn I was sooooo posting that Metallica cover!
Let's go with these guys then!
Think I'll throw some Quiet Riot into the mix as well.
Daughter cover of Daft Punk - Get Lucky
And here's Shadowchild's VIP of that:
Cause I really like it... So.. whatever.
DJ Majestic + MC Codebreaker == Batman & Robin of Drum and Bass. (Skip to 7:14)
Can't go wrong with a bit of CCR.
Pink Floyd cover
