  1. Hey GUYS! I think I have a cool idea...

    Lets put a list together of songs that have been remade to today's music styles. Basicly, anything from the past, generaly youll find 60's through 90's songs of course.

    Here are a few off the top of my head... (Im mostly into metal/rock, but post rap, country, rock, WHATEVER!)

    311 - Love Song (Oirigionally The Cure)
    Arch Enemy - Symphony of Destruction (Origionally Megadeth)
    Jay Z - Just Died in Your Arms Tonight" (Origionally Cutting Crew)
    Jimmy Hendrix - All Along the Watch Tower (Origionaly Bob Dylan)
    Korn - One (Origionaly Metallica)
    Korn - Ear Ache my Eye (Origionaly Cheech & Chong)
    Metallica - Turn the Page (Origionally Bob Seger)
    MxPx - Take on me (Origionally A-Ha)
    Nirvana - The Man Who Sold the World (Origionally David Bowie)

    Run DMC - Walk this way (Origionaly Aerosmith)
    Tori Amos - Love Song (Oirigionally The Cure)

  2. even better version is by tori amos.
  3. "Just Died In Your Arm's Tonight" - Jay Z

    "Love Is A Battle Field" - Papoose

    "The Man Who Sold The World" - Nirvana

  4. This is one of my faves, NP did a really good job of keeping the original element of the Collins version and adding their own particular style around the original sound

    edit: while I'm at it:

    Turn the Page: Metallica (Original Bob Seger)

    Walk this Way: Run DMC (Original Aerosmith), had to include this one because of the impact on the waning poplularity

    All Along the Watchtower: Jimi Hendrix (Original Bob Dylan)

    A personal fave....

    Take On Me: MxPx (Original A-ha)

  6. GREAT SCOTT!!! Thats a good list ;) Ill aphabitize and oragnize latere. Kinda need sleep right now.
  7. Hand on your Heart - Jose Gonzalez
  8. Kris Kristofferson was a great songwriter, but he didn't play his own songs very well.
    Me and Bobbie McGee is a good example. I think the definitive version of it is Roger Miller's. Sunday Morning Coming Down by Johnny Cash is also a good Kristofferson rehash.

    Willie Nelson's version of Always on My Mind is good, and more recently Shinedown did a pretty good version of Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
  9. Iron and Wine - Such Great Heights (The Postal Service)
  10. I didnt like Snoop Doggs cover of "Riders Of The Storm" cause Jim Morrison is a lyrical god but it grew on me.. you should download it if you havent heard it yet...its gota good beat.
