So I just picked up Children of Bodom's "Skeletons in the Closet" and after hearing these heavy versions of lighter songs, I'm wondering: Are there any light versions of heavy songs?

Schecter V-1 Hellraiser FR
Epiphone Special Model LP
Ruben Flores Classical
Peavey Vypyr 75

I heard a piano-ey version of Sweet Child of Mine on a John Lewis TV ad earlier today.. it was actually quite cool, buggered if I know who it was by though.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I believe it was Rise Against (correct me if I'm wrong), but someone did an acoustic cover of Blink-182's "Dammit" and it sounded amazing.

I heard some Salsa cover of a Pantera song if I remember rightly.

Trouble is when some pop artist takes a metal song and remakes it, all the metal community goes "OMG WHAT HE BUTCHERED THAT SONG OMG FAIL1!!!!"!$3!·!$%!"

Actually, all of Anberlin's covers are amazing.

Exodus has a hilarious bluegrass version of their song Bonded By Blood.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

Slipknot's Vermilion and Vermilion Pt. 2 are great examples.

Also, to a lesser degree, Killswitch Engage's Guitar Hero version of My Curse has WAY more singing than the album version, and I kinda like it more.

Question is, when do mainstream pop artists cover extreme metal?

It's not that bad. Of course there is more interesting stuff, but don't force too much "interesting stuff" in a song. It will sound unnatural.

Yeah, trying too hard will make you sound like Between the Buried and Me.

Vermillion and Vermillion Pt. 2 by Slipknot. Pt. 2 is the acoustic version, though both are very kickass songs.

well, none of my music tastes are "heavy"

But I do know some cool stripped down versions of full band songs:

Chris Thile - Dead Leaves and the Dirty Gound (originally by The White Stripes)
Sam Bush - Girl of the North Country (originally by Bob Dylan)
Sam Bush and John Cowan - Sailin' Shoes (Originally by Little Feat)
Darrell Scott, John Cowan, and Pat Flynn - You've Got to Hide Your Love Away (Originally by the Beatles)
John Cowan - Going to California (Originally by Led Zeppelin)

Boss N Roses

(or any of the series)

but Bossa N Roses specifically is my favorite.
Bossa Nova style remakes of GNR songs.

or the rest of the series (if you look up Bossa N Roses you'll find the rest) which turn other hits into Bossa Nova songs.

some of my personal favorite.
