Triumph - Rockey Mountain Way - Joe Walsh should be proud.

Van Halen - Pretty Woman - Tough to top Roy, but the guys may have done it here.

Van Halen - Dancing in the streets

Scorpions - I Can't Explain - I just like the song.

I liked the Version of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" that was in the movie Across the Universe. I checked Amazon - it credits it to T.V. Carpio.

One more - since I never see any Country on here....well, maybe the Johnny Cash references....

"My Maria" by Brookes and Dunn

Mentioning "Across the Universe" reminds me that I like the song of the same name by Fiona Apple.

Johnny Cash's Hurt and Pearl Jam's Crazy Mary are two really good cover. I found one that I really like that was not mentioned in previous post:

Little Wing - Stevie Ray Vaughan (Jimi Hendrix)

Enjoying "War Pigs" by Faith No More at the moment. Not sure if it is "better" than the original or Cake versions, but I like it and the production seems nice.

Loc: It's all about the location.
KD Lang's version of Roy Orbison's "Crying" as well as Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" are both brilliant, imo.

I do like Metallica's version of Turn the Page, as well as their cover of Astronomy by Blue Oyster Cult. Of course, I like the original of that one quite a bit, too.

For some reason, I can't stand Beatles covers. The Beatles did such a good job on them first time around...
