Best Cover Songs by Metallica


The Top Ten

1 Whiskey in the Jar

This was the second metallica song I ever heard, love this song. - dragon13304

It's my fave Metallica tune and it makes me wanna dance!

2 Turn the Page

one of the best cover songs of all time...
definitely good as original

Amazing cover song. Metallica did it very well. - Userguy44

3 Astronomy

Metallica took a really good song and made it different. Its more like a metal song than the original that is always good, as opposed to the mysteriousness that is encoded into the original song. Only Metallica could have done it just right. Its impressive but The original will always be the best.

well done to metallica, its better than the original -

Very awesome cover! I like it more than the original. This is my favorite Metallica cover of all time! Am I Evil and Mercyful Fate should be higher on the list.

This, along with Turn The Page, are my favorite Metallica covers of all-time!

Garage Inc. And Death Magnetic were probably the only good albums after the Black Album.
