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

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 V 1 Comment
5 Stormbringer - Jorn Lande
6 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

7 Speed King - Venom

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

8 Highway Star - Metal Church

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

9 Mistreated - Yngwie Malmsteen

Vox: Jeff Scott Soto - Metal_Treasure

10 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

The Contenders

11 Perfect Strangers - Dream Theater
12 Hallelujah - Blind Guardian
13 When a Blind Man Cries - Metallica

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

15 Smoke on the Water - Metalium
16 Highway Star - Shining Fury
17 Perfect Strangers - Bruce Dickinson
18 Black Night - Deicide

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