    Tool-No Quarter. Takes some serious mojo to nail a Zep song like that.

    They do a really good job. That's a live version. For mangos to mangos you need to compare to a Zep live version.

    Best Zep cover I've heard is Joe Bonnamassa doing Tea For One.

    Another one that is equal (in my book) is KoRn's cover of The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels.
    It's hard to top the original, but KoRn's version is great in it's own way.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned but I've ALWAYS liked this cover version of this song. Peter Tosh changed up the lyrics to fit JBG as a Jamaican.
