Best cover song by whom? Just Van Halen or of all time? I've gotta go with You Really Got Me. To me the sign of a good cover is when the band owns the song so completely that the original band sounds like a watered down cover by comparison (and usually has to switch to performing a modified version of the cover such as Prince's renditions of Nothing Compares 2 U or the Eurythmics Sweet Dreams).

I like Metallica's rendition of Diamond Head's of "Am I Evil?"

I like a lot of the covers on the Spaghetti Incident by GNR.

I guess since it's in the VH/DLR forum, it's VH/DLR guys...

Man, I also have to go with "You Really Got Me". They OWNED that tune. A close second would have to be "You're No Good" for me.

Well, non DLR/VH...

Skid Row's copy of C'mon and Love Me


Anthrax's Parasite.


Basically, if a group covers KISS, it can't get worse than the original.

Fav VH cover = You're No Good

Daves screams are some of his best ever

"Face to Face" did a cover of INXS song "Don't Change".

Hard edged punkish band with dynamite musicianship..

Other covers on an album they did called "Standards & Practices" included the Ramones "KKK took my Baby away" and Big Country...

Great shit!!!!!

I agree, this one is hard to beat.
As "You really got me" is.
But I think "You're no good" does it for me too, by a pussy hair, because of the awesome vocals. :cool:

Solo-wise, no hesitation: "Tobacco Road"! :)

What kind of blasphemy is that, saying Bach sings Unchained as good as D-Ro?? HELL NO!!!!!! Nobody sings Unchained like Papa Roth, not Johann Bach, David Lee Ralph, Calderone, or Gaygar...
