Best Cover Songs
 
I dont know if it has been done before, but fuck it, do it again :)
What are your favorite, or most well done, cover songs you've heard?
Mine:

In flames-world of promises
Norther-whichever offspring song it was
Estuary of calamity-a mansion in darkness
Cradle of filth-hallowed be thy name, sleeples... (most of their covers)
Graveworm-fear of the dark
Dimmu borgir-metal heart
COB-aces high


naming the band who wrote it isnt necessary, but go ahead if you like.

Vader- Merciless Death (Dark Angel)

WORST Covers
Cannibal Corpse- The Exorcist (Possessed)
Cannibal Corpse- Confessions (Possessed)
Nuclear Assault- Good Times, Bad Times (Led Zeppelin)
Dark Angel- Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin)
Slayer- Dissident Aggressor (Judas Priest)
Emperor- Gypsy (Mercyful Fate)
Exodus- Low Rider (War)

THOUGHTS
People should stop trying to cover Led Zeppelin, as they always fail. People should focus on covering Iron Maiden and Slayer, as they always succeed. Megadeth and Vader can do no wrong with covers. Cannibal Corpse should stop covering Possessed. What few Dark Angel covers there have been were all good.
