    Let's talk about covers, good ones bad ones....from epic to terrible. ....
    I recently heard James Maynards cover of Heart Shaped Box...it's horrendous
    His cover of Imagine was epic.

    Averse Sefira cover of Madonna

    I don't think that there's anything else quite as out there.

    Sigrblot - Commie Scum is a good party sing along.

    Obviously, Metallica doing "Blitzkrieg" and "Am I Evil?" and Judas Priest doing "Diamonds and Rust" are three classic examples of covers done right. If a cover is to be attempted at all, it should, at the very least, outdo the original. Whether it is a completely different take, or more of a tribute, it must accomplish this, or else everyone will see this as a rip-off or a money grab or something.

    Dream Theater - Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding is a good one. I like Metallica's cover of Mercyful Fate songs, and Stone Cold Crazy.

    That Nocternity cover was actually one of the reasons I started listening to Björk.

    What the Hell is this Averse Sefira cover haha, never knew they did this.

    I always forget that's a Björk cover. I'm listening to the original now and I don't mind it. It's not something I could see myself listening to very often though.

    ^ Vader did a lot of covers. They even have a new cd out that's full of covers again.

    Covering classic Slayer is kind of pointless.

    Speaking of Slayer, their cover of Born to Be Wild was just horrendous.

    I fucking love Saint Vitus but honestly I think I prefer this version. It just sounds so beautiful and alien to me.

    I'm not a big fan of Cradle of Filth but they did a pretty decent cover of hollow be thy name
