Anyone else a fan?

Have a playlist of around 200+ covers that I like to listen to, always liked different versions of familiar songs.

Here's a couple of examples, feel free to add your own faves.

The Ukranians - Big Mouth Strikes Again (The Smiths)


Killswitch Engage - Holy Diver (Dio)


And this is quite possibly the greatest cover version ever made:

Johnny Cash - Hurt (Nine Inch Nails)

Between the Buried and Me - Bicycle Race

_________________
'Dear Mortal Head of State,
I came here today to explain the true and total consequences of your actions over the last several months. I'm guessing after today that would be unnecessary.
It's not every day that a human finds himself responsible for the death of a god and then on that very same day escapes facing another.
Surely fortune favors you, and the men I spared. Enjoy it.
But before you wash your hands of my father's blood, I would encourage you to reflect on what brought us to this point:
You sacrificed honor for expediency. You traded intent for quick action. You were wrong . . and we all suffered for it.
So do better now mortal man . . for if not I, then surely some god somewhere will someday find you wanting.
It would be a shame to wager your good fortune with folly.

The God of Fear.
Son of War. '

Nina Hagen - Ziggy Stardust
It gets more interesting as it goes on.


David Bowie - I'm waiting for the man
I was expecting something bigger for a Bowie cover of Velvet Underground.


Human Drama - Can't cry hard enough
My favorite version of Can't cry hard enough by my favorite band.


Corcobado - Getsemani
One of the best Getsemani covers I've ever heard.


Fantômas - Rosemary's baby
A cover from the famous lullaby


Orphaned Land - Norra el Norra
The video is cheesy as hell, but I like how they turn this song into metal.


Powerglove - Tetris(themes b and c)
Awesome cover from an awesome song from an awesome game.


Stravaganzza - Hijo de la Luna
A really well crafted cover.
