    The "Amazing Cover Songs" Thread

    Pretty self explanatory. Could be covers by professional artists or just people on YouTube. Doesn't matter, just post.

    I'll start with Yuna's AMAZING cover of Come As You Are by Nirvana:

    "When’s the last chicken you heard about come home from work
    and beat the shit out of his hen, huh?
    Doesn’t happen, ’cause chickens are decent people.”

    Rob Zombie ft. Lionel Richie & Trina - Brick House (The Commodores Cover)



    The studio version is better though.

    Nightwish's cover of Gary Moore's Over the Hills and Far Away

    Tarja's voice adds so much energy and zing to the song. Simply amazing!

    Seether - Careless Whisper
    And as we walk out through the cords, into the webs
    Our blood thrashing to a different cask
    We will see a square to hold us all, that carries out all eagerness
    In light and in pastures, in sound and space
    In perspiration and in ache, in coil and blaze
    In respect and in futility, in peace and quality
    Everyone will claim their place, together.
    Eternally.

    And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low?
    Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know
    In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws
    And mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours
    And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that Lord of Castamere
    But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear
    Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall, and not a soul to hear

    Johnny Cash didn't just cover this song, he stole it and made it his.

    The majority of mine will be "youtube artists" covering songs. I'm limiting myself to 2 per post, otherwise this post would be fucking huge.

    Boyce Avenue covering It Will Rain (Bruno Mars)


    Clara C covering I Won't Give Up (Jason Mraz)

    I'm probably the only person that wasn't a fan of the Johnny Cash cover.

    Nope! As much as I love Johnny Cash, I honestly don't really like his cover much.

    Same here. Partly because so many Cash simply forget that T-Rez wrote and originally performed the song
