    Iron Horse has two whole albums of Metallica covers. Fade to Bluegrass volumes 1 and 2, and they have an album of Modest Mouse covers, and more. Very diverse and talented, all Bluegrass. Tons of fun, IMO.

    The whole Trinity Sessions album by Cowboy Junkies is great.

    Though not a cover, I also love their Murder in the Trailerpark song.

    ^ This.

    We have a "covers that are better than the original" thread rolling around here that pretty much proves this.

    Two examples of improving on greatness:

    I've seen that video a couple times and am always like what the?? What is the situation here? Is that a "school of rock" performance of some sort where these guys are just learning? That was beyond bad.

    Speaking of Metallica covers.
    Die Krupps - A Tribute To Metallica is a synth laden abomination.



    APOCALYPTICA - Plays Metallica by Four Cellos has some crazy moments.

    I think SRV did a pretty awesome version of that.

    During my thrash band years in college, we lived by a rule that there are three bands you just do not cover:

    Metallica - it'd been done to death
    Tool - no one can do it good enough to be listenable
    Pantera - no one can do it good enough to be listenable

    I liked the Cowboy Junkies at the time, it's just that cover I never got the hang of

    Katzenjammer doing Land of Confusion was great, really great. Also shows, imo, another example of the genius that is Phil Collins. Now, continuing on the good covers thing.... I like this one by Cake doing I Will Survive. Some might think it blasphemous...

    Led Zeppelin, back when they were deities, successfully sued to have Little Roger and The Goosebump's blasphemous Gilligan/Stairway mashup removed from stores. (despite that this is robert plant's favorite cover)
