I think Ministry's cover of Lay Lady Lay is much better than the original.

yes!  I'm not a huge fan of Ministry but that's one of their better songs.

Siouxsie and The Banshees - Dear Prudence

Have you heard Through the Looking Glass?  An entire album of the Banshees covering songs.

Quite like this.  Mad Capsule Market's version of Killing Joke's Wardance.

Also;

Leatherface - Message in a Bottle (Police cover)

Deftones - Wax and Wane (Cocteau Twins cover)

But truly speaking this is the greatest ever.

Sonic Youth  Superstar
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y21VecIIdBI

Is the right answer.

Funnily enough I mentioned this at the start of the thread (and I'd imagine in the old thread too(?). Its soooo good.

Sure I've done these before but off the top of my head I always go for 'Superstar' by Sonic Youth

The only more right answer is anything by Johnny Cash.

Mind that Shonen Knife is great too and lead me to their cover of 'Sheena is a Punk Rocker'

https://youtu.be/AP267mFKhJY (gave up trying to find a version with good sound!)

Which curiously lead me 'I'm on Fire' by The Staves (a band I've never heard of if I'm honest but this great.)

https://youtu.be/5LVW95Mxv6k

Which strangely (again) lead me to 'Needle and the damn done' by Jewel (again never heard of but this is great)

https://youtu.be/5LVW95Mxv6k

I then climbed out of the rabbit hole!

The Ramones' version of Tom Waits' "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" is great:
