Quite a few Deftones songs from White Pony sound as if they wouldn't work acoustically, but they do.

Nothing is more arousing for girls than a man who claims that he doesn't have worms - and can prove it with conclusive evidence.

Reaching out to me.
Lets me see.

Bon Jovi have also covered a bunch of their own songs on an album called This Left Feels Right. They've reworked them and made them pretty different to the originals.
