A tie in between this and Sweet Dreams by Mrailyn Manson and was originally by The Eurythmics. It's so dark, broody and most of all disturbing! 'Tis groit!

Wow. Clearly here just to promote your YouTube channel..?

Yeah, adbots are making me paranoid.

EDIT: On further study, every post you've made has resulted in you posting that YouTube channel. It has 2 videos on it, what the hell is the point?

No, the guitar was built to play metal. Not pussy ass cowboy chords. They won't work on that guitar. Get a Gibson Hummingbird for that bullshit. .

Coltrane's version of "My Favorite Things" deserves some mention, as does Johnny Smith's version of pretty much most of his repertoire.
#24
Whiskey in the Jar- Thin Lizzy
originally an Irish folk song.
Seasons in the Sun by Nirvana is also a great cover though. tough decision...

Hurt is ****ing awesome too. as is All along the watchtower
I smoke like Rasta, got hair like pasta
I be sippin' on them shots then bustin' rhymes like Busta


Load up the bong, crank up the song, let the informa call 911

My personal fav is Watchtower but I think RHCP's cover of "Brandy" is awesome, too.

EDIT: And their cover of the Sly Family Stone song "If you want me to stay"

I've always thought the Holy Diver cover by KSE was amazing.

Also Any way you want it covered by Rise Against.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nvpqOL4ojc

I don't see what's so great about Cash's Hurt. It's quite generic, while the original has a unique, disturbing, dissonant feel to it and is a perfect ending to the album.

I can't help but feel people love the Cash version just because he died.

and Imagine by A Perfect Circle.



I've never cared much for KSE but that was a good cover for sure.


I think my the some of the best covers IMO are

Machine Head - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden)
Machine Head - Battery (Metallica)
Machine Head - The Sentinel (Judas Priest)
Death - Painkiller (Judas Priest)
Megadeth - No More Mr. Nice Guy
Megadeth - Paranoid
Metallica - Turn the Page (Bob Seger)
Metallica - Astronomy (Blue Oyster Cult)
Metallica - Tuesday's Gone (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
Korn - Kidnap The Sandy Claws (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Amy Lee - Sally's Song (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Obscura - Concerto (Cacophony)
Obscura - God Of Emptiness (Morbid Angel)
Opeth - Bridge of Sighs (Robin Trower)
Slayer - Aggressive Perfector (Judas Priest)
Slayer - Dissident Aggressor (Judas Priest)
Static-X - Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment (Ramones)
Strapping Young Lad - Exciter (Judas Priest)

Yes, most of them are metal covers but that is my main choice of music.
