Also, Tool's live version of "No Quarter" kicks serious ass.

It sure does.

To cross-post from a similar thread...

"Cry" by Faith Hill was originally by Angie Aparo (and not a country song).

And now I'll include the YouTubes.

Another cover song (that I didn't realize at the time was a cover) that I loved was Nirvana's unplugged cover of Bowie's "Man Who Sold the World".
I didn't either.  I also didn't know that The Wallflowers' cover of Heroes for the Godzilla soundtrack was a David Bowie cover.

That one I did know. They even left out an entire verse of the original.

Here is another really awesome cover, this one of the Cranberries' "Zombie" by Bad Wolves.


RIP Dolores

I don’t think they left out a verse, I think they just rearranged the order.

I knew of these as Bowie songs, but I'm older.  Nirvana's was from an episode of MTV's "Unplugged." Someone once explained to me why Nirvana used electric instruments on what was supposed to be an acoustic television show, but I forget the answer.

I didn't know that The Wallflowers did that cover for a soundtrack.

I really dig Dream Theater's full-album remakes of "Master of Puppets" and "The Number of the Beast."

I may have mentioned this before, but I'm generally a huge fan of cover version tribute albums, whether it's one artist doing a bunch of other artists' songs, or an album with a bunch of songs from one artist performed by different artists. Metallica is one of the best in the business at doing that. Tesla has a double-CD tribute set that I'm fond of, Chicago finally did a big-band cover album about 22 years ago, Styx has one as well that I've listened to a few times. That's just to name a handful.

It's a shame the movie was such a bomb, because there are some good songs on the soundtrack.  Air by Ben Folds Five is another one.
