This one makes me blush to admit Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!o), but I like Limp Bizkit's remake of George Micheal's "Faith" better than the original. But then again, I'm not too fond on George Micheals in the first place, so the bar wasn't too high; LB just made a shitty song less shitty.
And a mentionable cover, although not great, is Melt Banana's version of "We Will Rock You" by Queen.
**Afterthought:**Actually most of Metallica's covers on the Garage Inc. Cd aren't too bad.

The best covers I've heard are any Dylan covers of Hendrix.
im listening to a cover band as we speak......
Though it is not on this album im listening to, I am reminded that I love Me First and the Gimme Gimme's version of "My Boyfriend's Back". and most of the other versions of songs that they do.
But also, Metallica's Ramones cover on the new tribute album:
53rd and third is very good.
Cradle of Filth - Hallowed Be thy Name (Iron Maiden cover)
Guns n' Roses - Knocking on Heavens' Door (Bob Dylan cover)
Children of Bodom - The Final Countdown (Europe cover)
Children of Bodom - The Trooper (Iron Maiden cover)
How did i forget that one. Yeah that was a good song, i have heard a little bit of the original song but the LB vesion is definetly good. Especially the dj scratching while Fred durst screams "faith"...yup nothing says love better then screaming while a DJ scratches. Also Incubus has some good covers too.
Metro - System of a Down is one cool cover...
Ready or Not - Fugees
They covered "dancing days" by Led Zepplin. I honestly thought there was no way they could do it justice. I thought "no way man, it rocks FAR too hard to be improved upon". Then STP did a remake and goddamnit I hate to admit it but those fuckers kicked it RIGHT IN THE ASS!!!!!!!!!! Damn that is a badass cover song.
I like that "Baker Street" thing by those Foo Fighter characters too. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
(as to why "sadly", for some reason I've always really dug STP's music, while feeling that I have to be ashamed for doing to as they are "kind of mainstream". it's tough to stay hip man)
How is SRV's version? Do you need to ask? OBEY THE GUITAR! You must hear it. SRV was as godlike as Hendrix for real. Both of them absolute virtuosos.
