    Another awesome Counting Crows cover was from Blind Melon Jefferson.

    Jumpy, it was a David Bowie song that Nirvana did a cover of on their Unplugged album. Their version was much better then Bowie's.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Sold_the_World

    In the wake of this cover, Bowie bemoaned the fact that when he performed the number himself he would encounter "kids that come up afterwards and say, 'It's cool you're doing a Nirvana song.' And I think, 'Fuck you, you little tosser!'"

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    This is the definitive cover of DM's "Personal Jesus". ANYONE who tells you Marilyn Manson's cover was better should be slapped, have their black eye-liner and nailpolish taken away and be sentenced to listen to Avril Lavigne. (Note to Philly -- yes, this is part of why me and Mr. Salt Lake City are no more.)

    One of the favorite covers. I don't even know who sang the original, but I've heard it and it's a completely unremarkable song when done by the original band, IMHO.

    ON EDIT: I didn't actually watch this particular YouTube video before linking, and there's definitely some NSFW content, so fair warning.

    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Yeah, the original was just horrible. Metallica really improved this one.

    I love Axl in his GNR days, but his voice was not the right one for Bohemian Rhapsody-he's more a Tie Your Mother Down type. They should have gotten Geoff Tate from Queensryche to do it, his voice is almost as good as Freddie's was. Adam Lambert did a good cover of it once, with the Queen band. But nobody today has a voice like Freddie did.

    At the time of the concert for Freddie, Axl was working with Elton a lot on his piano skills.

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
