    Hearing Disturbed doing "Land of Confusion", which fucking rocks by the way, got me to thinking what is everybody's best/favorite cover songs. A few of mine and the bands who did them:

    Bronx Casket Company-"Jump into the Fire"(Metallica)
    Nevermore-"Sounds of Silence"(Simon and Garfunkel)
    Metallica-"Turn the Page"(Bob Seger)
    Ripper Owens-"Flight of Icarus"(Iron Maiden)
    Merceyful Fate-"The Ripper"(Judas Priest)
    White Zombie-"Children of the Grave(Black Sabbath)

    Original line up.
    Helter Skelter was on Shout at the Devil.

    Side note to that. Saw them back in Feb and Vince was managing to hit almost all the notes in every song for a change.

    this is a multiquoting response and i dont feel like picking all the shit out so im just gonna talk into a vacuum.

    the milkmen's rudy, a message is really good, readily availible on limewire and i think its on the now we are 10/20 album.

    the rise above kid dynamite cover is probably my favorite cover of rise above, which is probably the most covered song in punk. but birthdays is more gooder to me.

    and no doubt- come on eileen are you sure youre not thinking of save ferris doing that.
