Let's compile a list of original bands out there that are known for cover songs!

As far as metal goes, I would say the distinction goes to Anthrax. Their three biggest hits were all recorded by other artists. On top of that.....EPs like Attack of the Killer B's and Anthems go heavy on the covers!

This doesn't have to be limited to metal bands! What other original acts are best known for their cover songs?

It depends what you mean by "covers"--just songs written by someone other than the performers, or songs written by someone other than the performer where the song has already been a hit for someone else and is thus familiar on first listen.

Linda Ronstadt
Joe Cocker
Bonnie Raitt
Three Dog Night
Santana
Frank Sinatra
Elvis Presley
Bing Crosby

Remedy was written by the Robinson brothers. A buddy of mine's cousin produced that record. He also discovered The Beastie Boys.
