Top 10 Rock and Metal Bands that Make the Best Cover Songschristangrant
The Top Ten
Metallica has made many great cover songs examples Am I Evil? Turn the Page Whiskey in the Jar etc - christangrant
They have about 10 cover songs. My favorite versions are:
Don't Talk to Strangers (Dio), The Wizard (Uriah Heep), Hallelujah (Deep Purple), Beyond the Realms of Death (Judas Priest), In A Gadda the Vida (Iron Butterfly), Dream a Little Dream of Me (Ozzie Nelson).
The most surprising cover was Dream a Little Dream of Me - I knew Hansi had several different voices but the way he successfully mimicked the singing style of the 1930s at the beginning was jaw dropping. I couldn't believe it was him...the same metal singer. - Metal_Treasure
They have many great covers - christangrant
Live and Let Die Knocking on Heavens Door are two great covers - christangrant
Both covers are really great. - Metal_Treasure
While they don't have that many covers their cover of Painkiller by Judas Priest was an absolute Masterpiece - christangrant
They have some pretty good cover songs Example Land of Confusion The Sound Of Silence. - christangrant
Any song that they covered, are much better than original. Plus more skills requiring songs. For example - if they had only released the Babe I'm Gonna Leave You riffs (non-plagiarized), still it would be famous. It was so dam* heavy riff. - zxm
They did make some of the songs way better and also helped make them well known. I know longer care for them as much as I used to because they did similar things to bands like Limp Bizkit cover songs and recieve credit as their own, which annoys me a lot know. - Lucretia
Yes they do good covers although they steal them and claim it's their own - christangrant
Good covers yes, credited covers no. - Skullkid755V 1 Comment
Jorn is the band of Jorn Lande (his solo career). He has many amazing covers, I really mean amazing. Here are some of them:
Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers, Burn, Stormbringer
Rainbow - Kill the King
Dio - Sunset Superman, Don't Talk to Strangers, Egypt (The Chains are On), Night People, Stand Up and Shout
Whitesnake - Fool for Your Loving - Metal_Treasure
A lot of times Anthrax can actually make the cover song better Examples Antisocial and Got the Time. - christangrant
Cat Scratch Fever is my favorite cover by them. - Metal_Treasure
Sunshine of your Love, Hey Joe, Blue Suede Shoes, All Along The Watchtower, Like A Rolling Stone, Hound Dog, Killing Floor, Born Under A Bad Sign, Come On are all fantastic covers. - BrianScott01
All Along the Watchtower enough said - christangrant
A metal band with mindblowing covers of classical pieces - Antonio Vivaldi's Summer, Beethoven 5th Symphony, Flight of the Bumblebee.
And an ABBA cover - S.O.S.
They have over 10 cover songs and I like them all - covers of Deep Purple, Rainbow, to name a few. - Metal_Treasure
They have several great covers but my favorite are: Angel Of Death (Thin Lizzy cover) and the best metal cover of a pop song is theirs, too - It's A Sin (Pet Shop Boys). - Metal_Treasure
They have many covers and they are very good. My favorite is Aces High - the best cover of this song and the best Iron Maiden cover song, in my opinion. Also, I like their funny death metal cover of Britney Spears' Oops I Did It Again!
Their version of Somebody Put Something In My Drink (Ramones) is very interesting - they made it sound kinda brutal (of course). - Metal_Treasure
Metallica's Sad But True, which they performed live, is incredibly good and I'm a Metallica fan, everybody knows it. Also these covers are very good: Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top), We Will Rock You (Queen). - Metal_Treasure
Surpisingly when they make cover songs they are actually pretty good - christangrant
Unique covers of metal classics on flamenco guitars (instrumentals). They released an album called "Heavy Mellow" - Metal Classics on Flamenco Guitars.
Try these: Aces High (Iron Maiden), Gates of Babylon (Rainbow), Sails of Charon (Scorpions), I am a Viking (Yngwie J. Malmsteen). - Metal_Treasure
School Days, Baby Please Don't Go, Fling Thing - BrianScott01
