Ugh - I hate that song with passion. It just comes on during the album and totally ruins the flow for me.

I like covers of The Rolling Stone's Paint It Black. Type-O Negative, The Agony Scene and Judas Priest did good covers of it. Any others?

another good family of covers is all the trillions of Girl from (or Garota de) Ipanema covers. There are even some "Boy from Ipanema"s.

Deadsy did a cover of Paint It Black on their latest album. I don't like, but I dunno if it's the cover that's or just the original song that I don't like.

I'd have to agree that it is very misplaced in that album, but on it's own, it's a very good song.

Sonata Arctica - Die With Your Boots On

Forgot that one. It is actually way superior to the original IMHO.

I'm trying to forget that cover even exists. That is probably the WORST cover I've heard.

On the other hand, Children Of Bodom's cover of "Somebody' Watching Me" is fucking amazing ;D.



And I like Metallica's covers of "Blitzkrieg". "Breadfan", "Astronomy", & "Turn The Page".

...don't judge me! :P

Black Ingvars made cover of "Oops I did it again" at past. They had some video with guys in school girl uniforms and guys with axes in their head. It was... Funny.

I like the Disturbed cover of Tears for Fear's "Shout" and Shadows Fall's cover of Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine."

Disturbed - Land of confusion

I was waiting for someone to mention that one ;) Fav!

Guano Apes - Big in Japan
Scooter - Ramp (The logical Song)
Don't know that many more covers except some trance remakes.
