    Adding to some of those already shared
    Toy Dolls - Final Countdown

    You probably know this band either from their rendition of Nellie the Elephant (calling it valid as it is a "cover" in some senses of an old nursery rhyme) or their contribution to the Tony Hawk 4 soundtrack. On cover versions they usually have a great version most albums but this thread is already getting a bit unwieldy so I will leave it there for now other than to say they might look silly, and have some silly songs but most of those are good and they have loads of good songs in general too (not to mention Olga is an amazing guitarist if you stop and listen). Well worth checking them out.

    In some ways this is more of a take/reimagining than a cover but still my favourite version of it all
    Dead Kennedys - I fought the law

    Always wondered why that song sounded different than the rest of the album.
    I saw that same tour in Palm Springs. They did it the same way. Very cool, and hot-there was real big balls of flaming fire.

    When I used to drink (I quit days before we went to The Big 4), I’d sing easy at karaoke.

    After The Clash split up we were left with Mick Jones starting Big Audio Dynamite and Joe Strummer forming The Latino Rockabilly War.

    Avicii - Wake Me Up

    Apparently it is super mega popular. Not entirely sure why though. Seems like a standard electronic/dance song.

    Russkaja - "Wake me up"

    Song I actually enjoy.

    other songs that make a nice introduction to the band, though if you want to go full album (and I would) then is where I would start.

    I am drawn to wonder how many people know that as a cover version


    Anyway more covers
    Una Paloma Blanca is technically the original

    I however far more enjoy cider drinker by the Wurzels and I imagine it is what more people know it as. That said there are plenty of various other takes on the original.

    and covered also by Bad Manners

    and Alestorm


    The Wurzels also have a lot of covers (several albums of them), I will skip the originals as anybody that glimpsed as a radio about 10 years ago probably had their fill of them and this is already going to be another browser killer page (also I don't much care for them)

    Primus

    An ok Beatles song turned into something amazing by Siouxsie Sioux's awesomeness. Paul McCartney has even said it is better than the original and the best cover of a Beatles song by anyone.
