Everything Johnny Cash covers is good...

Some of my favourite covers from others though...

Pearl Jam doing Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's Hawaii '78

Rammstein's cover of Depeche Mode's Stripped

Celtic Thunder covering Mountains of Mourne (popularized by Don McLean)

(I couldn't find an official version on youtube)

Hurt's a good second, but in my mind no cover ever done better than Stevie Ray Vaughn's cover of Jimmy Hendrix's Little Wing.

No one in my opinion could make a guitar sing/cry nearly as well as SRV.

The Clash doing "I Fought The Law" made famous by the Bobby Fuller Four

Sacrilege to cover the Beatles but Aerosmith made this version of "I'm Down" their own.

Figured I'd throw in the worst cover of all time as well. Celine Dion and Anastacia (ummm who???) butchering AC/DC's classic "You Shook Me All Night Long".

Caution I am not responsible for cleaning up any vomit resulting from listening to this.

I would have said Turn The Page, but since that's already linked I'll go with Whiskey In The Jar

To me The Blue album is one of many albums that covers are so hard to so successfully because you are use to the sound of a song delivered one way. It's hard to hear it and like it any other way. Here is my all time favourite Weezer song done acoustic and instrumental. They do it justice.

Dont know really how to post YouTube vids but Godsmack's cover of Led Zeppelin's Good times Bad times is excellent.
