Rage Against the Machine's version of Cypress Hill's 'How I Could Just Kill a Man' is tops for me at the moment.

blues standards aside (there's just too many to consider each performance a cover), i'll second SRV's "Little Wing" and add his "Voodoo Chile."

i'm also quite partial to Gn'R's "Live and Let Die" (Wing's original)

Tool cover of Led Zeppelin's "No Quarter"... turned a good song into an amazing song.

Metallica's cover of Bob Seger's "Turn the Page"... so very good.

Last but not least, the cover of Tears For Fears' "Mad World" that was done for Donnie Darko.

Metallica's cover of Thin Lizzie's Whiskey in the Jar ( I think it's better than the original) Not to fond of their Turn the Page though, I think Bob Seger probably puked when he heard it.

Definately Stevie Ray Vaughns cover of Voodoo Child

I used to run the sound board for a local band who did a really great cover of Misty Mountain Hop - turned it into a VERY heavy song.

Although it's shitty quality, I always liked Goat Punishment's (ie: Weezer) live covers of Nirvana songs. There's five of them, if I remember correctly.

Sorry, but Motörhead does a great cover of Enter Sandman.

A few more to add:
  • Ozzy Osboure - Stayin' Alive (just because it's so damned amusing)
  • Megadeth - Paranoid
  • Megadeth - No More Mr. Nice Guy
  • Megadeth - Never Say Die
  • Metallica - Blitzkrieg
  • White Zombie - I'm your Boogieman

I just read this thread, I must say, I agree very strongly with all of these choices

Travis's version of "Hit Me Baby One More Time". At first, it's great simply for the laugh factor, but as you listen to it more and more, you realize what a wonderful song it actually is...especially when not recorded by Britney Spears!

my favorite cover ever is "Dancing in the Moonlight", a Thin Lizzy song covered by the Smashing Pumpkins. it's soooooooo mellow and easy going. it'll bring tears to your eyes if you were ever in love at age 15 or so

also thoroughly love "I'm on Fire" by Bruce Springsteen covered by Heather Nova

"Whiskey in a Jar" an old irish song and Thin Lizzy cover by Metallica

hmm.... Johnny Cash did a killer Danzig cover of "13"

just a few faves up there.

Carp. When I started reading this thread, I had a GREAT song in mind, but it has left me by now.

Oh, wait.

The covers of "Cinnamon Girl" (Neil Young) and "Summer Breeze" (don't remember who originally) that Type O Negative produced brought those songs to an entirely new level. One they sincerely needed to be brought to.
