This will take some thought, however, if a Judas Priest cover makes it to the list, I am going with Green Manalishi.

I know this is probably blasphemy, but i focking hate Jethro Tull, so as much as i like Maiden, that tune's gotta go.

Metallica did a good job with Turn the Page, but I wouldn't put it in my top 5 metallica covers. Am I Evil is such a metallica staple many people assume they wrote it. for a cover they did from a more popular band, I always liked their version of Queens stone cold crazy.

Classic cover...aerosmith nails come together

You could easily just make a list of 5 Metallica covers. They are the masters.

Metallica - Crash Course in Brain Surgery
Helmet - Custard Pie
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground
Tool - No Quarter
Foo Fighters - Have a Cigar

I can see this thread getting RP retarded in a hurry, so let's be clear that it doesn't mean you think the covers are better than the originals.

Kind of a reversal but Cash doing NIN's "Hurt". IMO probably one of the better covers everister.

He also did Soundgarden's "Rusty Cage" but i dinna ken to it sa much.

Absolutely NO ONE better mention that certain band that remade that certain George Michael song! :leer:

My addition to this list, even though it is not technically a "full" cover:

Bring Tha Noise - Public Enemy & Anthrax
Tell your story walkin'!

Rev 5:5

Yeah I was under the influence when I wrote - big shock right ?

No way I'd put 2 Iron Maiden songs in top 5

Take out Cross Eyed Mary and replace with Areosmith Train kept a rollin (Yardbirds)

Replace Turn the page with (too many Metallica choices) .... Astronomy is a good replacement.

Take out VH and replace with Foo Fighters Darling Nikki/Baker Street/Rock n Roll

HONORABLE mention B.O.C. cover Roadhouse Blues....... :cheers:

Disturbed - Shout was much better

White Zombie - awesome ( might just be Rob Zombie, not sure)

We could just put in Garage Days and leave it at that.

It's good but a little too slow for me. How I Could Just Kill A Man (Cypress Hill) is pretty good...they got a live video of that. They also do a killer remake of Fock The Police (NWA)
