This just popped up on my random and reminded me how energy and enthusiasm can make even ELO catchy and fun

definitely a better Bad Romance cover than the original.

Caro Emerald does a wonderful jazz version of that song. Here's her singing it live (with her band) in a studio

Not sure if this was posted earlier, I stumbled upon it the other night.

Linkin Park - Rolling in the Deep

Even though it's overplayed, it really is a very good song.

The new Godsmack album has a buncha covers. I haven't listened to every track yet, but this one is decent, imo.

Godsmack - Rocky Mountain Way

Dugh out Leatherface's cover on youtube...and I cannot agree.

I personally feel Machinehead did an amazing cover of Message in a Bottle however:

Very much agree. Especially with LA Times.

As blasphemous as it is to say a remake of any Hank Williams song is better, this one is AMAZING. None other than Seasick Steve.

Bumping this up for two songs I heard on the radio this morning. The first I had no idea was a remake until I realized I knew every line, it was a cross I'd never expected to hear:

Jamey Johnson doing Meat Loaf 2 out of 3 ain't bad:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HTuwqZDww0

The second is another Jamey Johnson (this time with Kris Kristofferson), and it wasn't a huge jump of genre--just him covering one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs, Sunday Morning Coming Down, but I can't find a video of it. So if anyone has one, post it up!

EDIT: Here is one, but of mediocre quality. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJSm3IyVPd4

Respectfully disagree wholeheartedly. The whole unplugged album sucked, in my opinion. What gives Clapton's songs life is the electric guitar work. Glad that Springsteen didn't go for the "unplugged" bs. Just felt like Eagles-esque soft rock. Which I don't care for.
