Love the Sid Vicious version of my way. ;-D

Also agree with the Megadeth version of Paranoid. There are two other Megadeth covers that come to mind as well - Anarchy in the UK and No More Mr. Nice Guy. I think Megadeth is one of the better bands for making cover songs as they tend to stay true to the original version while making it a little heavier or a little faster. I don't really like it when artists go overboard with the histrionics to make a barely recognizable version of a song. Sometimes it works but if I know the original I probably won't like the cover in those cases.

Also one of my favourite covers (which I only recently found out was a cover) is Anthrax's Anti-Social which was originally from a French band named Trust. I think the original is in the new Guitar Hero so it'll probably get at least a little exposure. Anyway the Anthrax version is way better but it's good to know that there's at least one French song out there that I like.

News to me that Anti-social is actually a cover too. Whatever the case, I'm sure the Anthrax one is better. ;-D

I also forgot Motorhead's cover of Sex Pistols' God Save the Queen, which isn't bad but I think their version of AC/DC's It's a Long Way to the Top is better and the same for Enter Sandman. IMO, Lemmy's cover of Ozzy Osbourne's Desire is better than the original. ;-D
