    Default Great Cover Tunes

    Thought it'd be cool to start a covers thread. List your favourite covers or just ones that you find unique and cool..whether it be by a completely different band from the original or just different singer or whatever..there's no limited genre, it can be any..just don't come in here and flood it with hipster-hop, where some guy is just rapping over an old rock song because that is not a cover.

    If Your Uncle Jack Helped You Off An Elephant, Would You Help Your Uncle Jack Off An Elephant?

    Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
