As well as:

Black Stone Cherry's cover of Can't You See by Marshall Tucker Band.

They do the song justice, but in pretty heavy fashion.

Two come to mind for me; Blinded by the Light (Manford Mann) and So Fucking What (Metallica)







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

One of my current favories, Janet Devlin, does some really good covers. Her original stuff is damn good too.

+1 on Janet Devlin. I won't post my favorite of hers because it might be considered Rick Rolling, but trust me, it's actually good.

I also like these 2:

Foo Fighters - Baker street

Jane's Addiction - Sympathy for the Devil
