I think System did a phenomenal job of Black Sabbath's "Snow Blind". They almost make that song there own, then again the best cover songs do imo.

I agree.. I almost thought that they are better than the original.

If you know your 70's glam rock, then this is genius:

Celine Dion did a fair job, Ann Wilson still kicks the most ass as far as singing this song.

There's a local band here in Texas called Triprocket who did a cover of Zepplin's "Immigrant song"...I think they did an awesome job myself...

I really like some of the covers Guns And Roses' did, Sympathy For The Devil, Live and Let Die, Knockin' On Heaven's Door in particular (I really hate Raw Power, but I also think no one can take on Iggy, so...)

that is good. and i am a HUGE Sweet fan, so I can appreciate this.

Love the lyrical changes too. if anyone on here has never heard of Sweet then they should give their stuff a listen.

I actually prefer Derek and The Dominos' cover of Little Wing to Jimi Hendrix's. I think the combination of Eric, Duane and Bobby takes it to a a whole new level. Well, actually, I saw Clapton live last month with Doyle Bramhall II and it still beated Jimi's...

(for the record, I love Jimi)
