Macy Gray's Radiohead "Creep" cover
I'll take the worst of Metallica, Kanye, Jay z, Journey & U2 over the "best" of Eminem, The Beatles, Nas and Elvis any day. It's simple math, genius at it's worst or trash at it's best.

Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower (a given)
Clash - I Fought the Law
The Who - Summertime Blues (the live version really) (as much as I like Cochran)
The Commitments - Try A Little Tenderness (sheepishly)

Put Your Dukes Up John pretty much the same but Alex Turner's voice suits the song better than Eva Petersen's

William Shatner - Common People

No this isn't a joke. Thanks to Bon Iver this song become something so much more than what Pulp did with the original.

Have you ever heard the live version of APC covering/fusing Ozzy's Diary of a Mad Man with The Cure's Love song?
It's pretty damn epic.

Anyway, I think Puscifer's (MJK again)cover of Elton Johns Rocketman is way way better than the original.
