What classic rock song would you most like to see covered? Name the song, the band who originally played it and the band you'd like to see cover it.

Personally, I'd like to see Deep Purple's Highway Star covered by Children of Bodom.

I'd like to see the Raconteurs do some Abbey Road-era Beatles. And I wanna see the Hives do something like Pictures of Lily. I also would have loved to see Hendrix cover Dylan's Visions of Johanna, but that's not going to happen. :(

I think Axl Rose would do a lovely impersanation of Small town girl.




Im joking.

That would be pretty good actually. They could do a lot of Steve Miller.

Can't think too clearly of exactly what I want, but right now the idea of Muse doing something by Queen intrigues me.

I think it'd be cool to see Van Halen do some Queen songs.. none in particular.

FOr some reason I think Incubus playing some Pink Floyd would be cool, maybe something off of The Wall.

Edit: The Red Hot Chili Peppers doing Frankenstein by The Edgar Winter Group might sound cool as well.

I would also like to see Springsteen cover Like A Rolling Stone with that huge band from the Seegers Sessions. They were amazing live and I really think they could pull it off.

Wolfmother covering Heartbreaker, or Coheed covering any Rush.

^^I'd rather see Wolfmother cover some Sabbath, but Zeppelin works too.

And Coheed doing Rush..that would be badass.

:haha (I get it)

and I think it should be wolfmother going for helter skelter (only because the singer sounds like the ozzy osbourne/robert plant lovechild)

Edit: The Red Hot Chili Peppers doing Frankenstein by The Edgar Winter Group might sound cool as well. after thinking about it for 10 seconds, that would be very cool indeed.

The Black Crowes do a lot of Classic Rock covers...Street Fighting Man, The Weight, Ten Years Gone, Lucifer Sam, Honkey Tonk Woman and Fearless just to name a few. The Crowes should do Breathe/Breathe Reprise, considering their songs Good Friday and a part in A Conspiracy sound just like it anyway :p: If the Crowes play Honkey Tonk Woman when I see them on July 22nd, then I will have seen the song performed by three different major artists- Aerosmith, The Stones, and (if they play it) The Black Crowes :)

Like a couple of weeks ago there was some news on the main page about rush talking about doing some Who covers. If they do it i would like to hear Wont get fooled again covered.

I would love to see someone try and play "Texas Flood" by Stevie Ray Vaughan, but I can't think of many that can play like Stevie Ray.

I think Queens of the Stone Age ought to cover Cream's "Politician."

I'd like to see someone do a good Rolling Stones cover. No hits, ones that not too many people know about. A good rocker like "Bitch" or "Rocks Off"

I saw Willie Nelson last summer, and he played it. His son sang it and played lead. He was pretty good (not SRV good, but still)

I'd like to see a Jam rock band like Dave Matthews or Dispatch (if they were still together) do a cover of "down on the corner" or some other CCR songs.

DMB trying out some CCR would rock my socks off. I would like to see them try to cover some Tom Petty. I personally think they could totally pull it off.

I think it would be interesting to hear the Zutons cover Stairway to heaven. And I'm with the guy above who said Audioslave play dazed and confused.

Eric Johnson and his band covering Beatles songs.

Yeah, he did a really good job on guitar, but the vocals weren't the best.



I'd love to see Metallica cover Journey's "Lights," that would be the most f***ed up song ever.

I wanna see that. Chris Cornell doing Robert Plant... mm.

...not THAT kind of "doing"!

distilledspirit

That would be a great cover. Audioslave could do any Zep song imo.
