Not sure if I've posted this before, but here's a link to a fantastic, suprising range of cover versions. The AV Club website invited the public to nominate songs for bands to cover, then a load of bands were invited into the studio to choose which one they wanted to cover. Each time a song was performed it was crossed off the list. The project is now in its fourth season and all the covers are free to view and listen to.

Some of the covers are brilliantly done and some are just bobbins, but they are all interesting. See what you think... here's 2012's tunes:

The ultimate cover version: Taking a legendary Jimmy Cliff song and transforming it into something so completely different. Brilliant stuff by a truly great band.

Anne Nightingale used to play that every week on her Sunday night show about 1984.

If you can be arsed, there is also some excellent footage of their lead singer facing the PMRC panel and absolutely tearing their arguments to pieces. Dee Snyder v PMRC or similar.

I was aware of its existence.

 

Nothing had prepared me for its magnificence.

Not a cover version (as far as I know) but just wait 'til you experience Leonard Nimoy singing 'The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins'. YouTube is your friend....
