    Ozzy's cover of Fire by Arthur Brown is really good. I thought the rest of his covers album was pretty bleh, but that tune was a diamond in the rough.

    Not a covers fan but the Metallica cover of Turn The Page was awesome (originally by Bob Seger) Also Your Mama Don't Dance by Poison (originally by Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina) and their cover of Squeeze Box (originally by The Who) The first live show I ever went to was a local covers band back when I didn't know a lot about music, they played a cover of Every Rose Has It's Thorn and so began my journey into 80s rock/metal.

    That is very tough....... however, two stand out as far as "bigger" songs that were covered........

    Alien Nation - Avalon. This version beats The original, though Chity (the vocalist) is actually doing a Klaus impression of sorts. When I say this beats the original, that says a bunch, because although "poppy" to some, I love this Scorps tune and consider it a top ten by the Scorps.

    Egypt(The Chains Are On) - Doro. I can't say this tops the original, but it is on par, and how many people can say they could sing "on par" with the late great RJD ? I doubt she could keep up with many of Ronnie's other songs, but that was an incredible version she did.
