Billy decided to cover James Brown on one of the Machina II eps. Not sure why. Sounds nothing like the original song.



Paul Oakenfold cover of Dreams
The BT remix because its amazing. Skip to 5mins when the song actually starts.

So many great tunes. A bluegrass group called The Hillbenders covered Tommy by The Who in its entirety as a bluegrass opera. It's pretty great.


Strange covers and no one brings up Frank Zappa covering Stairway to Heaven? Shame.
His version of I am the Walrus is great, too. I'm very happy he recorded most every concert he played.

Foo Fighters semi-recently released a disco album, yeah a disco album, and have some BeeGees covers. Must be great to be that successful that you can just put out shit for fun.

Also, some songs that got covered and as a result, ended up being confused as originals:

The man who sold the world - David Bowie (though many people would later assume it to be an original song by Nirvana)
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft - Klaatu (which would end up becoming more widely heard after being covered by The Carpenters)

And finally, just for laughs:

Carry on my wayward son - Kansas cover by GWAR
A complicated song - Avril Lavigne parody by Weird Al Yankovic
