Johnny Cash- Hurt
Jimmy Hendrix- All Along the Watchtower
Bill Murray- More Than This
Neil Hannon- Life on Mars

No idea, I usually think the originals are better.

I love PWN3NG NintendoLife members on Tatsunoko :-)


Richie Havens -- Here Comes the Sun
REM -- Superman
David Bowie -- Knock on Wood
Phish -- Boogie On, Reggae Woman
They Might Be Giants -- Istanbul

Those are just the first few awesome covers to pop into my mind, rather than a top 5. That would require a lot more consideration on my end. So maybe I'll pop back in with 5 others I love.

Top 3 for me, 'cause I'm drawing a blank for the awesomness of these three.

3: Genesis's Land of Confusion, by Disturbed
2: Depeche Mode's Everything Counts, by Meat Beat Manifesto
