Another music topic, what are some of your favorite covers of great songs? A couple to start:

The Wilson sisters from Heart, Jason Bonham, and a host of others doing Stairway to Heaven at The Kennedy Center Honors.
Have a Cigar - Primus.
Angel from Montgomery - Bonnie Raitt
Jackson - Carolina Chocolate Drops

Johnny Cash - Hurt

Love me some Nine Inch Nails but Cash's version was better.

I'm afraid this could be the Nickleback of covers....but "Tainted Love" and "Sweet Dreams" by Marilyn Manson.

 

Also, check out Two Cellos (back before instrumental covers were all the rage).

Here, here!  Have never understood why this doesn't get airplay on the 70's stations. This version kicked butt.

That was a cover of a cover lol. And pretty good imo. 

Billie Joe's cover of Kids in America was good too.

Not sure why, but you and Zunardo have wonky avatars. I'm going to remove both so you have the standard OC logo avatar. Feel free to add a new one or let me know what you want it changed to and I'll update it for you.
