This is a thread to discuss anything about cover songs. Covers can often be rehash or worthless in the face of the original song, but other times, bands play good tributes or put a really interesting spin on their subject.
Anyways, what are your favorite covers? What are some interesting covers you found? What do you think about covers? Are you sick of seeing the word covers, yet? Discuss.
Recently, I've been loving the hell out of Ghoul's cover of "What a Wonderful World." It's the cover that prompted me to make this thread. It's pretty much a metal/punk parody of the original, but there's something about it beyond the humor that puts a grin on my face. The upbeat punky riffing over goofily sung lyrics about reveling in a post-apocalyptic wasteland make me so happy, the way the original intended to do. It's weird, since it is a joke on the Louis Armstrong song, but at the same time it feels true to the spirit, but in a way that a sarcastic metal numbskull like myself can digest.
