Better than the Original?

What is your favorite cover song?

Easy “Whiskey in the Jar – By Metallica”

While I love the Thin Lizzy recording (which I’m not sure is the original but c’est la vie), Metallica put such an awesome spin to it you just can’t help but get into it.

The close second (Blasphemy) “Faith” by The Boy Least likely to [do not miss the chance to listen to it loud].  This is a great cover for the Q Magazine goes to the 80s collection (and a B-Side I think) How often are you going to hear a song you can dance to that has banjos and a song you can sing along with? Inspired!  Faith reminds me of my last few years in grade school and my first years of High School.  These are mostly bitter memories, but there is some sweet there too. I was and still am a giant dork after all.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention “Behind Blue Eyes” by “Limp Bizkit”  I really love that cover.  Damn me.
