The famous version - which I also love

Well I never knew that was a cover!

Tiffany's 'I think We're Alone Now' is a cover too.

Eight miles high is a cool tune, they do a cracking Sheena is a Punk Rocker (Living End) and they also did a cover of Ticket to Ride. Z

Been playing in bands for 20 years but if there's one band I would never attempt to cover it's Tool. So it's impressive/depressing to see a bunch of school kids have done it twice and done a fantastic job of it -

Sober - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctt87B6hU1M

46&2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYKLvYGqaC0

46&2 is impressive because it's a really complex track and they nail it* and Sober is even more impressive I reckon, because they've taken a lot of liberties with the arrangement and made it their own. That's one I can see me actually listening to a great deal to be honest.

*well, they skip the part in the breakdown where the guitar and bass add/drop beats independently to slip out of sync for a few bars at a time, and it takes a few of them to do the percussion that Carey pulls off just on pads, but it's still bloody impressive.

This may have been posted - Its rare I prefer a cover to an original, especially such a great original. But this is just awesome  Metallica Remember Tomorrow

Haha Great!

Indeed - it's my favourite Maiden song and most covers I've heard over the years just try to emulate the original. It's when something different is done - that's when a cover really works.

If it's good metal parodies of pop songs you're after...

This is the one that you want.
