    Toadies do an awesome version of heart of glass. Seen them play it 2-3 times. They added their own unique musical twist to it. It really is awesome. I do like the original by Blondie as well.

    I am a big fan of Nirvana, and they do some AWESOME covers (Lovebuzz), but when i heard CHARLES BRADLEY & THE MENAHAN STREET BAND cover "Stay Away".... Well, give it a chance:


    Escape is never the safest bet..

    Living End does Tainted Love... So much better than the original.

    If I exclude PJ cover songs, my fav would be Spiderbait's Black Betty.

    I love this cover!!! Don't necessarily think it's better than the original, but it is definitely one of my favorite Santana collaborations...

    Black Keys have produced the best Junior Kimbrough covers IMO.

    Maybe not better, but just as good Disturbed- Sound of Silence Simon & Garfunkel- Sound of Silence
    Ugh! My wife plays the Disturbed version all the time and it drives me crazy. I can't believe I actually used to like these guys back in the day, now hearing his voice makes me cringe. But that's just me.
