Reminds me... Our/THE REAL Disturbed covered BOC's Tattood Vampire, in live sets, but they also covered the mighty Celtic Frost when John Swett played guitar in the band, evidence...
Not known World wide, but someday, since I am dedicated to spreading the name of Earl Root in his honor, keep the man and band's legacy alive.
One of the Root of All Evil traditions was a special metal radio show of ALL COVERS and since he passed away, Tim H who co-hosted for many a year, continues it annually in a show aptly titled Cover Your Ears It covers all covers we can muster in a 5 hour span of music, with NO commercial air play! Unprecedented!
In the rock genre again... TESLA, a band out of Sacramento California, you may have heard of, struck sonic gold with Little Suzi. A song that is again, a cover, an obscure Simon Philips band called Ph.D! It took forever for me to find this info.
Black Crowes cover of John Lennon's Jealous Guy is one of the all-time best, if you ask me. TRULY, because I did hear their version first, but I went back and got a Lennon Best of and then found his melancholy version at slower tempo felt like the Unplugged one, it was again genius

There are so many good covers I know of that I'm not sure where I should begin. I'll post this one for now and add more when/if I remember to do so.
I love Pink Floyd with an immense passion and they are by far the greatest influence in my life but this cover can't even be compared to the original. They are both so unique and have such an individual feeling that, in essence, they are no longer the same song at all. I adore both versions hugely and respect the covering artists for treating the song so delicately. Enjoy.
