I've never posted a covers collection before and these are just some ones I liked. Some of these are just fun and some are truly inspired "re-creations" rather then straight ahead remakes.

Looks great. An especially inspired Whiskeytown pick.

How can you not have even one Mr. Bungle song? They do the best covers. Super Mario Bros. theme, Welcome Back Kotter theme, Hit Me Baby One More Time, etc. Yeah, they're all live bootlegs, but they're easy to find with the right p2p.
