Hungry Like the Wolf by Reel Big Fish, it's on a Duran Duran tribute album, but I still like it.

If you came from the NoFX era of punk, I think you get your card revoked if you don't cover "Take On Me".

no - it was a real song - real cover - i think they even released it - snoop gave them full permission - it's funny cause they use all the same cusses and terms and words that snoop used - just done in a country twang and the beat is country-fied a bit - it's really well done... but i hear what you are a saying eh...

Shit Dino, the entire Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine anthology is amazing.
But I'll give you one from their list that stands above the best:
"Rape Me" (cover of Nirvana)
(the start of the song begoins "Here's one for the ladies...")

Allow me to be the first person to mention Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt"..

On a less high brow note, I love Debbie Harry's cover of "The Tide is High", and Roberta Flack's version of "Hey, that's no way to say goodbye" is one of the few songs that can make me blub....

On the idea of cover songs...I pose this question that I have often debated with my friends:

Can a cover song be better than the original? or is the fact that its a "cover" make it inherently inferior to the original.

i think Cash's Hurt was better than the NiN original - was just infused with more feeling and pain... it was brilliant...

Double post, Tainted Love by Softcell is far superior to the original. Their are covers where they just duplicate the song, and covers where they put their spin on a song. Depending on which band is better, the 'spin' cover can be just as good.

Weezer covered a Britney Spears song at a concert and it was almost an enjoyable experience.

While I enjoy the Cash version immensly (I mean you can totally feel his pain about the loss of his wife) I must say that I would hesistate to say that its better than the original because Trent Reznor wrote the lyrics himself, he obviously felt that pain and emotion to write that. I don't know its a debate that has no clear right or wrong. It is fun to argue though.

The Cardigans - There She Goes (cover of The La's, originally a song about heroin, but when the Cardigans do it, somehow I don't think "heroin.")

There is another cover of Tainted Love which I consider to be the best of all.

It's by Dave Phillips and the Hot Rod Gang - don't bother checking it out if you don't have a soft spot for rockabilly though....

I quite enjoyed The Foo Fighters' "Baker Street", and I dunno if Liam Prodigy's version of Love Bug counts, but that was pretty cool too......

Hendrix's version of Dylan's 'All Along The Watchtower'. The guitar God made that song his own.

Yes, Cash's cover of 'Hurt' is tear-jerking stuff. And the video to it, just how great is that as well.......the finest rock/pop video ever made.

Speaking of covers, has anyone heard the songs from that new X-box game Stubbs the Zombie?

It is all these pop-punk groups doing old 50's songs. I was just wondering if they sound any good.

I remember really liking Placebo's 20th Century Boy, but it's been a couple years since I last listened to it so it might not be so good if I heard it again.

Speaking of The Clash, their take on Junior Murvin's Police and Thieves wasn't just a different song, it invented a whole bloody new sub-genre (2-Tone).

I don't know if anybody's mentioned The Beatles' Twist and Shout yet, or The Stones' Not Fade Away, great songs.

My personal all-time favourite cover of...err all time is Bo Diddley's You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover. Damn they stole that song right from underneath Willie Dixon's feet.

Also Led Zeppelin's whole back-catalogue was pretty much one big cover song...
