    I love the Testament version as well, but IMO, it didn't really change genres. Testament played it pretty much straight up to the original albeit speed up a little. The original Aerosmith version is just as heavy IMO.

    Since we're on the subject, here's my preferred cover of that song from '87.

    This cover of Van Halen’s Jump came out only a few months after VH’s but it feels more timeless to me. Huge genre shift. I love the solo that kicks in at 3:30

    I find this has an urgency the original lacks that better matches the lyrical content

    I'm probably reeeeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyy stretching some of these. They retain the same spirit of the original but slight shifts regarding tonal qualities that fit a particular genre...

    Like... more dramatic than the S&G version


    And... more psychedelic and dreamier than the CSN version (one of my ALL TIME favorite covers!)



    Cheating a little bit with this one...



    But probably more like what you are looking for :)
