There's a lot of great choices in this thread already, but I will try and make a small contribution by linking to a favorite internet radio station of mine on SomaFM called Covers. It's a great little station to hear some very interesting and offbeat cover tunes.

I will defend this to my grave:


(It's from a great little album of cover versions of Disney theme park staples. I'd absolutely sing the praises of the Barenaked Ladies take on Grim Grinning Ghosts, too - although I think it sounds uncannily like They Might Be Giants)

Not as good as the remastered version, but very good


Johnny owns this song


Just a classic clash piece


The best version of this song - fight me Hendrix fans

I saw this on my "Up Next" somewhere randomly in the middle of it... Not gonna lie, I clicked on it to hate on it. My thoughts were: "I bet it's one of those pretentious covers where they over sing the song". It only took 10 seconds into the song to win me over.

Brass Against - The Pot (Tool Cover)

^ This version is so good it gave me a renewed appreciation for the original song. Best case for a song cover.

I don't think this was posted already.

Some great covers in here guys, keep it up.

Not the Weezer / Toto covers, though. They're just bad.

I'm a big fan of cross-genre covers. This is one of my favorites: The Cardigans cover "Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath".


alstrike thanks for that Wolf Like Me cover ... I love it.

This is not a cover in the true sense, but it is my favorite rendition of "words i never said"

Outworld

Faith No More - This Guy's in Love With You

Such an amazing cover, I wish they officially released it. Song made me fall in love, hard.

Marilyn Manson - Sweet Dreams

Jetta - I'd Love to Change the World

Avila - Dream On

Lana Del Rey - Once Upon a Dream

A metal cover of Toto's Africa more interesting than what Weezer snoozed out (Leo Moraccioli ft. Rabea & Hanna):

And, to balance out the chromatic karma, an orchestral ensemble arrangement of aha's Take On Me (Brooklyn Duo & Ensemble Connect)

The Hollies - A Taste of Honey; the first time I hear it by The Beatles, I don't know who's the original writer of the song, but I think The Hollies' version is superb.


Heatwave - All I Am; original song by Lynsey de Paul, Heatwave's version is better in my opinion.

While I like Josh Ritter a lot, the Punch Brothers version of Another New World pretty much made the song theirs.

Studio Version:
Live Version:

It just feels like a much more realized journey compared to Ritter's.
