    Hey, I thought we could share some nice covers of songs - only rule is that they have to be WAY different than the orginial.

    I'll give a few for starters.

    SOAD - Aerials -

    Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé - Telephone -

    I know Summer Breeze was already mentioned, but how about the Type O Negative version?!?!?
