It's got naughty words or I'd link to it, it's on Youtube.
You mean Phish right?

springsteen's is actually a cover of the tim hardin original which has been covered by bobby darin and cher among others

zepfan wrote:I checked out the Maiden covers although I hadn't heard of the bands. The Iced Earth cover was awesome and pretty much exactly what I meant about staying true to the original. They nailed it and I hate to admit it but the heavier guitar almost sounded better to me than the original. I actually wish Maiden's rhythm guitar was heavier but I guess you can't ask for everything.
zepfan wrote:The Aces High cover I didn't like as much mostly because I just can't used to that style of singing. It was weird to hear Maiden sung that way.

Dan Lambskin wrote:i thought about starting this thread awhile ago, but didnt. anyway, i'd say some of the best are
Knockin On Heavens Door by GNR
Landslide by Smashing Pumpkins
Man Who Sold the World by Nirvana
here some more obscure ones that i really like and are worth checking out
John Lennon's Imagine by A Perfect Circle
Pink Floyds Run Like Hell by Kitte (Canadian Teen Girl Death Metal band). this one rocks hard
Sabbath's Iron Man by The Cardigans
Sabbaths Planet Caravan by Pantera
the Stones Under My Thumb and Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire by Social Distortion
Dave Grohl (cant remember who he's with) does a decent Have A Cigar
Korn has some nice covers with Ice Cubes Wicked and Floyds Another Brick in the Wall
Dynamite Hack doing NWA's Boyz In Da Hood is pretty funny
probably a few more i am forgetting, but that's plenty. i'll have to check my MP3's when i get home
the Worst have to be Sheryl Crows Sweet Child of Mine and Limp Bizkit covering The Who's Behind Blue Eyes (although their cover of Faith was pretty good). New Found Glory (or some other crappy "punk" band who sounds the same) covered Back That Thang Up and it was terrible
