    That was amazing, thanks for sharing! Both bands seemed to be having a good time and Marissa's guitar solos both were great.

    (I was in Madison when Butch and Duke's previous band Firetown was still going and I saw the very first Garbage show ever. Shirley said to the crowd, "I'll always remember you because you were my first!" Probably most of the guys in the audience swooned. :cool:)

    I really liked Disturbed's version of this.

    Thanks for this. I had heard it before but could never manage to find who did it.

    IMHO, this is the best cover of a Beatles tune...

    Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" comes to mind.
    The Beatles, and many other British Invasion groups, covered old Motown hits.

    I have a pretty vast collection of Beatles covers, and this album happens to be among my favorites.

    Allison Krauss - It wouldn't have made any difference

    And Todd's "Original" covers of the Beatles LP - Deface the Music
    Who could forget "I Just Wanna Touch You" on Ted Sullivan

    not a cover but a "remaster" Obla di Obla da... off the "Beatles" album (just happens to be white) I can't stand the new version... seems too pro-Paul. and I never heard the line "and if you want some fun, take o bla di bla da" on the remaster. critics say it's a better album than original... BAH!

    I like this one too. She turns it into a cool punk song.

    Paris, north down Montmartre hill
    There was a French project named Nouvelle Vague which has made a few records of Bossa Nova covers of punk & new wave songs.
    Some are really nice, but it ends being a boring formula.
