    Default Favourite Cover Version

    Whats your favourite cover version of a song?

    I have to say I love Metallica's version of Whisky in the Jar and Turn the Page is no bad either.

    others would be

    Ben Taylor - Time of the Season
    Ataris - Boys of the Summer.
    I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore

    Favourite at the moment has to be The Who's - I Can See For Miles by Incubus.

    I quite liked River City People cover of Caifornia Dreamin', anyone remember that one?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.
