    This is one off the best covers evermade.
    But I do like the Bob Dylan version to, but Jimi version is better.

    Continuing with the German theme we seem to have fallen into. 99 red balloons/99 luft ballon

    Something of a pop hit in the 80s (see the video, though it is rather hard to find these days https://www.facebook.com/music101reborn/videos/nena-99-luftballons/311317119460905/ has it)


    As nobody is likely to listen to a song in German at that point in time then there is also an English version that is possibly more well known outside it, even if it is probably a weaker effort


    She came back in 2009 to do another version, and has played it for years otherwise (you can find any number of live versions, think there was another in 2002 as well if a search is anything to go by)
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4kw91b
    She is also the better part of 50 in that video which is quite impressive.

    Also to save people a search here is the Scrubs scene


    Covered by Goldfinger (they were popular for a while during the ska fad in the 90s but today most around here probably know them from their contribution to the Tony Hawk soundtrack).


    They also appeared to join the list of bands showing their personal jam session spaces during the little stay at home bit


    Cover by Leo Moracchioli, mainly as if nobody has gone and heard their various cover versions of things I suggest it

    Possibly stretching the limits a bit, however I do like piss take songs and parodies so I am counting it

    Will the Circle Be Unbroken? An early 1900s hymn

    Jello Biafra (singer for the Dead Kennedys, I noted their cover of "I fought the law" earlier in the thread) · Mojo Nixon (Mojo Nixon, or an example that US country and western music is occasionally prepared to take the piss rather than be smarmy boring nonsense or awful party songs)


    Technically they did actually do some actual covers on that album (Prairie Home Invasion) but that is my favourite song from it.

    Going another
    Motörhead – Iron Fist

    Slightly better quality


    Korpiklaani - Iron Fist

    Kinda surprised seeing a thread about cover songs and (unless I missed it) not one mention of Marilyn Manson, because he has done a lot of them over the years. Most of his covers I much prefer over the originals. Just to give a couple of examples:

    I should listen to more Faith No More. Did various things at points but ask me to name a song other than Epic and I will start to sweat.
    Rossini: William Tell Overture: Final

    Though you can have the whole thing if you want

    The Rezillos - The William Mysterious Overture

    Seems the band above changed name to POP Etc and thus we have


    If we are doing covers of Nirvana songs then
    Musik For The Kitchen with Lithium

    and while they are a German band then better do a Kiss cover as well for alexander1970
    I Was Made for Lovin’ You


    The band is seemingly primarily a swing/jazz/similar covers band and has some quite amusing takes actually.
