    I think Sting's "Brand New Day" would be a great cover tune for Rush.

    Anyone have similar cover ideas?
  2. 10cc's 'I'm not in love' done by U-2 or The Cure.

    I'd like to hear Opeth do Genesis' Carpet Crawlers.
  8. I'd like to hear Neurosis do "One More Red Nightmare" by Crimso

    and Clutch do "Singapore" or "Rain Dogs" by Tom Waits.
  9. I'd like to see Ashlee Simpson sing Genesis' "I can't dance" for the sheer novelty of it :)
  10. I'd love to hear Metallica doing "24 hours from Tulsa"....

    Cheers Rody

    Prince, doing any Al Green song. I think he's the only one who could pull off those high parts, plus I think he could make them his own.
  13. I'd be tickled to hear Tenacious D do Queen's Killer Queen. Something magical would be created.
  14. Great thread...

    How about Sarah McLaughlin doing Fell On Black Days by Soundgarden?

    I thought Marcus Miller should do the theme to the pink panther (exchange the sax for slappy bass done marcus style).

    I posted this suggestion on his webpage a couple of years ago and he replied saying he'd have to think about it ... but again that was a couple of years ago. Too bad he didn't jump on it.

    I had long wished that ozzy cover "21st century schizoid man" by king crimson. Then he did... it sucked.
