I love a good cover song. There is just something about hearing a song you already know and like (or in some cases dislike) being reinterpreted by another band. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. Probably the best example of a cover blowing away the original would be "Hurt" originally by Nine Inch Nails. When Trent Reznor performed the song originally it was a deep emotional song but it never really stood out from the rest of his works. The song was then 'covered' by music legend Johnny Cash just before he died. Arguably the Johnny Cash version is much more moving than the original. Both versions are available on youtube if you want to see what I mean. NIN Version of 'Hurt' vs. Johnny Cash Version of 'Hurt' I know some of the folks here are probably not huge fans of teeny-pop music but I have to say that this 'punk cover' of Miley Cyrus's 'Party in the USA' is quite listen-to-able.

Some other notible cover artists to check out- Me First and the Gimme Gimme's - punk/rock covers of oldies hits. Richard Cheese - "lounge" covers of modern rock and hip-hop.
