Thread rip off time So what are your favorite covers out there?

Uli Jon Roth - "White Room" There is something about his voice and the sound of his guitar that makes this seem really awesome.

Prince - "Best of You" (From last years Super bowl concert) Another really enjoyable one, and it was really out of left field for Prince. I would love to hear him do a studio version even if it will never happen.

Guns N Roses - "Knockin on Heavens Door" As much as I like to poke fun at this one, its excellent imo. Slash's guitar work is amazing. To hell with anyone who says he can't play slow and with feeling.

Judas Priest - "Diamonds and Rust" They totally made this into their own thing. The guitar licks that fill out the song help to complete the feel of it.

Orgy - "Blue Monday" Another case of taking a song and making it there own. But in a different way. It still heavily resembles the original, but is played on "conventional" instruments.
Any cover Van Halen did.
Paul Gilberts Dancing Queen and Two Become One.
Yngwie Malmsteen's rising force's Gimme Gimme Gimme.
SRV and Steve Vai's little wing.
David Lee Roths california girls and just a gigolo/I aint got nobody.
Children of Bodom's Rebel Yell
Nirvana's The Man who sold the World
Trivium's Master of Puppets
Machine head's Battery (in fact that whole kerrang cover album is pretty damn good)

the G3 foxey lady with Vai Satch and Petrucci, i like whyskey in the jar by metallica, paranoid by megadeth, hole in the sky by pantera and any van halen cover

van halen - you really got me (kinks)

Guns'n'Roses - knocking on heavans door (bob dylan?? lol am i wrong ?)
I like Korn's cover of Another Brick in the Wall I-III. Everyone hates it, but covers arent about doing the song perfectly. They really flipped the song into a heavy, driving song. And it doesnt hurt that Munkey did the solo perfectly.
Mastodons cover of Orion. Havent listened to it a whole lot, but i like it.
HIMs cover of Solitary Man. Sounds good for a Neil Diamond song (NOT a Cash original).

Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt" is great. Clapton's version of J.J. Cale's "Cocaine" is a great cover too.
