Let's start with a cover of Iron Maiden's Fear Of The Dark, played on harps by a couple of blonde hotties. What's not to like ?

You should hear Richie's cover of Blueberry Hill. It's to die for.

I think The Donnas are just one of the best "cover bands" out there now, though they have a ton of originals.  They just seem to pick the right songs, and always amazed that they pick two-guitar songs and manage them pretty well with only one guitar player.  I included the live versions so you don't see any studio magic in that regard, but look up the studio versions too.

 

Here's "Round and Round"

 

 

And "Strutter" ff to 1 minute

A friend of mine years ago came up with his version of Folsom  Prison Blues.  Here's him (playing guitar and singing) from about 4 years ago with his old band doing a local gig.

Brandeis students from a bit over a  decade ago cover Rush.  A cappella.

 

 

And Peter Frampton covers Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden (yep).

Still one of my favorite covers of any song by any band.  Great energy.

I love this version of an old Genesis song.

 

 

Hell ya, me three.  I remember when I first heard it thinking "THAT's how they [Genesis] really wanted to perform it (but couldn't because of the lame '80s)"...
