I am reckoning that Green Day isnt even the best cover of I fought the law. That is plainly The Clash.

 

to which I would add Armagideon Time by Clash and Surfin Bird by The Ramones.

The ramones did some class covers.

 

 

I reckon Zeppelin pulled some mint ones aswell , some of the old rock n' roll covers were class, specailly the Eddie Cochran ones.

Peter Laughner's version of Venus is a) a good cover, and :lol: interesting because he covered it about a year or two before the actual song was ever committed to vinyl.

Was going to say that myself. Rufus Wainwright also does a good version.

 

Bowling For Soup - Baby One More Time

Motorhead - Enter Sandman

Agree with Johnny Cash version of Hurt.

 

Also like Nouvelle Vauge doing Love Will Tear Us Apart.

 

And Paul Anka doing Eye of the Tiger.

I'd say it's funny but not their best. August and September, Fuzzy and Working Class Hero are all better covers.

 

I'll throw in Hold It! by Do Me Bad Things, Go Your Own Way by Seaweed and the obvious Suicide is Painless by The Manics.
