Covers. I think it's safe to say that every single musician on the planet has covered a song at least once. What covers have wowed you? They can be from big name bands or they can be from some random unknown you found while browsing youtube. Post all the good covers of songs you find here and share them with us.
Here's my contributions for examples.
First, an unknown.
This guy flawlessly plays Karma by Bump of Chicken. It's honestly one of the best covers I've ever seen.
Now, a big name band.
This was a bonus track on The Offspring's Greatest Hits album. They cover Next to You by The Police. I honestly don't know if I prefer this or the original.
And finally NO FLAMING. If someone posts a band you don't like then skip their post and move on. Feel free to comment about what you like about the covers though. Just make sure you quote so we know which one you're talking about.
