281Mr. Freeze - Slayer (Dr. Know)
282Guilty of Being White - Slayer (Minor Threat)V1 Comment
283Creep - Richard Cheese (Radiohead)

Try the Northern Kings version - doom metal style. They made this sad song sound extremely dark. - Metal_Treasure

The Northern Kings' version makes me hide in anticipation of the stalker.

284Anarchy In the U.K.- Megadeth (Sex Pistols)

One of the best covers in history

285Band On the Run - Foo Fighters (Paul McCartney & Wings)
286If Only Tonight We Could Sleep - Deftones (The Cure)

When you look at you tube MTV Icons The Cure you will know. So bombastic and well played. I think it's better than the original. The whole entourage is matching with the performance

287Heart Full of Soul - Rush (Yardbirds)
288This Flight Tonight - Nazareth (Joni Mitchell)

As with their version of 'Love Hurts', Nazareth have got a real knack to bring life and soul into other artists' songs.

289Love Will Tear Us Apart - The Parsonage (Joy Division)
290Right Now - Death Harmonic (Korn)
291The Sound of Silence - Disturbed (Simon & Garfunkel)

Damn this is good. There is sadly a trace of vocal modification but the overall result is good.

It's a great twist on a popular song. You don't expect a heavy metal bad to remix a folk rock song

Pretty good version from their brand new album.

Can't belive this is so low down on the list

292Shadowplay - The Killers (Joy Division)
293Sympathy for the Devil - Laibach (The Rolling Stones)
294Running Up That Hill - Placebo (Kate Bush)
295Footloose - Blake Shelton (Kenny Loggins)
296Alone - Adam Gontier (Heart)

In my opinion, the original is okay, but this is definitely one of my favourite cover songs! (Even though I have a lot)

297Hope - Sublime (Descendents)
298Hazy Shade of Winter - The Bangles (Simon and Garfunkel)
299Everybody's Talkin' - Harry Nilsson (Fred Neil)
300Sit Down, I Think I Love You - The Mojo Men (Buffalo Springfield)
