Almost any Rage Against the Machine cover is great, they really add their own feel/style to the songs they cover. Here is a list of all the songs they have covered/worked on with other groups that are worth mentioning if you wanted to know.

Microphone Fiend by Eric B. & Rakim
Pistol Grip Pump by Volume 10
Kick Out the Jams by MC5
Renegades of Funk by Afrika Bambaataa and Soul Sonic Force
Beautiful World by Devo
I'm Housin' by EPMD
In My Eyes by Minor Threat
How I Could Just Kill A Man by Cypress Hill
The Ghost of Tom Joad by Bruce Springsteen
Down on the Street by The Stooges
Street Fighting Man by The Rolling Stones
Maggie's Farm by Bob Dylan
All of the ones above are from their album Renegades

Intro (Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos) (Live) with Chuck D.
Hadda Be Playing On The Jukebox (Live) originally a poem by Allen Ginsberg
Fuck tha Police (Live) by N.W.A.
Clampdown (Live) by The Clash
The Sound Of Da Police (Live) by KRS-One

And these few I guess you could include if you want to stretch things
Bombs Over Baghdad with Outkast
Wu-Tang Clan Aint Nothing ta Fuck With with Wu-Tang Clan
Snoop Bounce with Snoop Dogg

But yea anyways RATM had some great covers that are worth listening to.

Sometimes, there are covers that are done, that make you want to puke. Like most of Metallica's covers for example. Others, you think are even better than the original song. So, in your opinion, which covers do you think are better than the original songs?
Also, list the shittiest covers if you would like.

edit: Why did this get merged? It was a different subject. This thread is about favorite covers, mine was, what covers are better than their originals. I could be wrong here, but I don't know.

Damn, there's alot of Rock up in this thread! I'll see if I can add some Soul into this to balance it out

Here's a beautiful cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's "Sun Goddess" that I got from a DJ Muro Hawaiian Breaks mixtape, this is some fine 70's jazz-fusion right here, perfect to wake up to on a bright, sunny morning:

Sun Goddess Cover.mp3 - 3.9 Mb (http://usershare.net/kztou84cyaq7)

I like all the covers of The Doors' " Light My Fire" I've heard so far, they've been very soulful listening experiences, from Shirley Bassey, Young Holt Unltd., to Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger Trinity. I can't believe there are 61 covers of that damn song!!!
