    Richard hung himself, originally performed by DI. Slayer covered it and did it ten times better than DI. Other than That i think that most song are ruined by the artist that cover them. but im an idiot what do i know.

    I have to agree wit hCracked about All Along the Watchtower.

    Off the top of my head I can really only think of two; Slapstick covering Earth Angel, and this is a tough onehere, DKM covering Gang Green's Alcohol. They're both so fucking good. Also Bouncing Souls coverof Don't You Forget about Me, which sounds basically liek the original but it's cool based on who covered it. DKM Barroom Heros, among many others also are actually covers written by the old Irish, so I guess those all count in my book. Pietasters cover of Drinking and Driving originally by The Business is rad too.

    There's many others but I can think of much right now. I'm going to finish this beer and try and fight off this cold or flu or whatever it is that I've seem to caught on a Friday.
