The Mars Volta - The Wall or pretty much any pink floyd
Radiohead - Hotel California
Mastodon - Fairies Wear Boots

I heard Iron Maiden are doing a cover of "Hocus Pocus" by Focus. Imagine Bruce Dickinson yodelling .

I'd like to see Killswitch Engage do Dio's "We Rock" because IMO their cover of "Holy Diver" was awesome.

How about mediocre bands should not cover good songs or they are impaled on a tall spike?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Radiohead would completely fail at California rock type stuff.

The more you like them

Napalm Death covering Cliff Richards - Millenium Prayer

On a more serious note, Metallica covering A.I.R. by Anthrax would be pretty cool and Hatebreed doing Sepultura - Slave new world would be awesome!
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

Cannibal Corpse - Barbie Girl.


I have heard a death metal band do covers of pop songs like Britney Spears or that "Sweet Like Chocolate" crap. Can't remember the name of the band though...

I looked up youtube for it, but it isnt rammstein, its some dutch band.

anyway, the worst cover is Rolf Harris doing Stairway to Heaven... oh god...


Ther ereally arent that many bands i want to see doing covers. Foo Fighters doing a cover of Message in a Bottle (The Police) would be interesting.

Excuse me? what?

The Eagles are WAYYY better than Radiohead, and if you think radiohead are better, then why should they play a song that "sucks" instead of writing one themselves which would be "much better"?

And also, every Pink Floyd cover I've heard so far is crap, and nothing comes close to the originals.

have you heard Matisyahu's cover of Message in a Bottle? I typically don't like his music that much, but it's a really good cover.

Radiohead has already written songs that are 'much better'.

The Lawrence Arms should cover Lithium.

no i havent (i havent even heard of Matisyahu) but ive just found a version by Machine Head, which is alright. I think a band like the Foos could do a lot better with the song though. The Police's version is still the best.

Ok, so basically your saying the sole existence for The Eagles is Hotel California? Meanwhile, Radiohead has a number of songs that could rip that song up.

no, the Eagels have a lot of good songs, Hotel California just happens to be one of the best.

Furthermore, this agrument is relatively pointless, because it is based on musical preference. My saying The Eagles are better than Radiohead will not change your opinion that that is false. Nor will your trying to convince me that Radiohead writes better songs convince me that Radiohead is better than The Eagles.
