I’m not a really big Killswitch Engage, or Dio fan but this cover of Holy Diver is REALLY good, I like the original but I think the cover is so much better, and the video for the song is pretty cool too.See the Full Post with Videos!
While originally a 1953 song by The Four Lads, most people remember this as a They Might Be Giants song, and this remix is of that version. It’s a really well done dance/techno mix of an old swing style song. Definitely one that can be listened to multiple times.See the Full Post with Videos!
Helmet and House of Pain made this song for the Judgement Night Soundtrack, This entire album is just collaborations, between rap groups and rock groups, it is probably in the top 20 best albums ever, every single song on it is great, and a perfect pairing.

Faith No More is usually the band doing the covers, but this time they are being covered.

This song is a cover of the Eurythmics song. Marilyn Manson added some extra lines to the lyrics that are not present in the Eurythmics version: “I wanna use you and abuse you/I wanna know what’s inside you” along with “I’m gonna use you and abuse you/I gotta know what’s inside you. The video for Manson’s cover contains several clips of Manson and bandmates in what appears to be an abandoned building. In between the clips…See the Full Post with Videos!
This Sublime song is a cover from a song on the Saturday Morning Cartoons’ Greatest Hits, which is a great compilation of bands doing cover songs from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s cartoons. The original song was the sung by Scatman Crothers, who played Dick Halloran in the Shining.See the Full Post with Videos!
