I'll start with a couple of slightly humorous ones. First is Carnival in Coal doing Baker Street, originally by Gerry Rafferty. http://youtu.be/-ijAqN6LB5I
Children of Bodom doing a better job than Britney. Still not a great song but funny. http://youtu.be/K84j7CJIUKU
Being a big Nine Inch Nails and Johnny Cash fan, this is great. http://youtu.be/l95D7leeU3w
Let's see what pops up.
Another children of bosom one I dug was bed of nails by I believe Alice cooper they did it some justice I think.
Love metallica's versions of turn the page, stone cold crazy and the merciful fate medley they did on garage inc.
matisyahu did a cool version of message in a bottle.
I'm not a korn fan but I dug their take on brick in the wall parts 1-3
Alien ant farms version of smooth criminal is a guilty pleasure I'm sad to say.
Amon Amarth did a funny version of Ariel's by system of a down as the last track of surder rising.
I believe still remains did a cover of war ensemble for a video game sound track that was awesome.
Between the buried and me's take on blackened by Metallica is better than the original haha.
Johnny cash personal Jesus.
There's a ton more but I think I've put a few too many already.
