This is a little bit (very) poppy and has nothing on the original, however the video is very enjoyable.

give it a shot.

How is one supposed to dance to this?

Or do you just take a lot of drugs and lay on the ground tripping balls? :D

I bloody loved that song when it was released - just listened again and it's still great. And that Battledragon's cover isn't bad either once it kicks in.

The Sisters of Mercy have a fine track record for making odd cover versions, as I've noted upthread. Reversing that, here's an amazing cover of This Corrosion.

Wow!  That seriously works.  In fact I'd be hard pressed on which is the better version.  The Sisters with their hard core original or this subtle and nuanced take on it.  As an anthem for post industrial America (or even Britain) it seriously works.  Thanks for that.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross just released a surprise cover of John Carpenter's Halloween theme (just that sentence got me quite excited). It's not a dramatic reworking or anything (although it does start to get a bit NIN briefly towards the end) but it's covered in that atmospheric ambience that Reznor and Ross do so well, so it's cracking.

Yeah thats pretty cool. Not sure it can quite match the Jim Steinman glorious ott'ness but it works really well. Reminds me a bit of 'Something Fast' for some reason

That's fantastic, thanks Jim.
