    Good call - I think they're 'Apocolyptica' or something like that.

    Funny that it's always metal bands covering pop tunes hardly ever ther other way around.

    What about Johnny Cash doing NIN's 'Hurt' is awesome

    I think the two groups are different, and from what I hear most people go for Apocalyptica. Not sure though, I onky know a friend bought the String Quartet's Tribute to Incubus and told me they had one for Maiden .

    Yep - Awesome cover - great choirs and atmosphere. Xentrix doing 'Ghostbusters' or Edguy doing Ultrabvox's 'Hymn' are two more of my favourites.

    I prefer when Metal Bands cover non-Metal songs, it's so much better.

    I have a version of 'We Will Rock You' sung as an a capella lullaby by Linda Ronstadt.
    Unusual, but very pretty.

    (Hope all is well with you all in MR land)

    Well there were a couple of americans who did some excellent ... and I mean EXCELLENT lounge versions of some old Dream Theater songs. Portnoy used to have it played over the PA during the breaks. They never released it on CD and I don't have the mp3s anymore - shame :(

    One recent tune which comes to mind is

    Shakira - Back in Black (its on her excellent new live DVD)

    Somehow, I can't imagine this song being covered by an R&B singer. :confused:
