If you ask me, covers should try to stray away from the original. What's the point otherwise?

Hammet is an awful lead guitarist.

Best Metallica cover

Trivium do a good job playing the same thing, sure. I love covers that do something completely different with the song, though. Hendrix's All Along The Watchtower is an obvious but prime example of this. A recent example is Chromatics' cover of My My Hey Hey by Neil Young. It's the same song but it has such a different vibe now.

Neil Young's


Chromatics'

ewww Trivium

This cover is the best MOP cover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSpu...feature=related

I can understand if you don't like Triviums original stuff, but that is a damn good cover of mop.

Metallica is my answer, not because it is hard to improve on them but because the people who like doing Metallica covers almost always suck.

I beg to differ.

I'm gonna say Black Sabbath. Never heard a good cover of their stuff.

Dark Angel - Creeping Death

Those two are pretty good. Vader also did a pretty respectable 'Fight Fire with Fire', but I don't really like the original song, and the cover doesn't really do much for my impression of it.

You should check that link I posted a few posts up. And that new Chromatics album is really cool. We've got it in rotation and I always play something off of it.

Will do. You usually have good music up your sleeve.

Yeah it's one of my favorite albums of the year so far. It's just so chilled and breathtaking.

^Streetlight's cover of Just was fantastic.

As were most of the covers on that album, but that's just because I'm such a fanboy.

I'll concede those two, I forgot Dark Angel did that cover. Still not nearly as good as their original work though.

Surprisingly the first one somehow fit. Not lyrically, but structure wise.

Wait a minute, hold the phone. Their version is crap. That's not acceptable at all. If it doesn't sound like this, this, this, etc it's just plain wrong. Simple as that.
