Best Cover Versions of Deep Purple Songs

I prefer covers by metal bands because they are the best. Also modern metal goes with Deep Purple songs.
But non-metal covers are OK, too, if they are good.


The Top Ten

1 Perfect Strangers - Jorn Lande

It's not only the best Deep Purple cover, it's one of the best covers of all time. - Metal_Treasure

2 Mistreated - Rainbow

Vox by Dio - Dio did a great job on this one. There's only a live version but it's great (from the live album On Stage, 1977). - Metal_Treasure

Just a great song

3 Burn - Jorn Lande

Jorn Lande is amazing again. - Metal_Treasure

4 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple, Queen, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Yes, Rush

Watch the video on youtube - Kerrang called it "the greatest array of hard rock talent ever assembled".
In 1989, artists from Pink Floyd, Queen, Rush, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Yes, Iron Maiden and others joined forces to raise funds for people affected by the Armenian earthquake.
Guitars - David Gilmour, Brian May, Tony Iommi, Ritchie Blackmore, Alex Lifeson, Chris Squire
Vox - Ian Gillan, Bruce Dickinson, Paul Rogers, Bryan Adams
Keyboards - Keith Emerson, Geoff Downes
Drums - Roger Taylor - Metal_Treasure

5 Speed King - Venom

The best cover of this song by far. Awesome! - Metal_Treasure

6 Perfect Strangers - Dream Theater
7 Stormbringer - Jorn Lande
8 Space Truckin' - Overkill

One of the best Deep Purple covers on this list. - Metal_Treasure

9 Highway Star - Chickenfoot

A great cover, moreover it's a live version. - Metal_Treasure

10 Speedking - Primal Fear

This speed metal band did a great job on Speedking. The singer screams not worse than Ian Gillan and their sick drummer put some extras. - Metal_Treasure

The Newcomers

? Highway Star - Buckcherry
? Highway Star - Alter Bridge

The Contenders

11 Highway Star - Metal Church

Thanks to whoever added this - I completely forgot about this version. - Metal_Treasure

12 Black Night - Monument

Monument is a new metal band from The UK, formed circa 2010.

I love Black Night and I'm glad Monument did this awesome cover. - Metal_Treasure

13 Mistreated - Yngwie Malmsteen

Vox: Jeff Scott Soto - Metal_Treasure

15 Hallelujah - Blind Guardian
16 When a Blind Man Cries - Metallica

This is a very extreme cover as you can guess. - Metal_Treasure
