* Finnish {{Alternative Rock}}ers Music/PoetsOfTheFall have done a few covers, since SurprisinglyGoodEnglish is part of their schtick, but two standouts are their live studio version of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcjZZIRRBNA You Know My Name]]," Music/ChrisCornell and Music/DavidArnold's Film/JamesBond theme from ''{{Film/Casino Royale|2006}}'' for The Voice's ''Livenä Vieraissa'' compilation album, performed while fully decked out in Bond {{Tuxe|doAndMartini}}s, and a live [[UnpluggedVersion acoustic]] cover of Music/{{Adele}}'s BreakupSong "[[https://youtu.be/GBrzryFr-G8 Rolling in the Deep]]" at Radio Nova's Nova Stage.

* Many people are familiar with the [[CarlosSantana Santana]] song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UIojGDIBvI The Game of Love]]'' as sung by Michelle Branch from his 2002 album ''Shaman''. This version, however, is '''not''' the original version: Tina Turner originally sang the song, but it was released only five years later on a compilation album.

* PigDestroyer 's cover of Exhumed To Consume by Music/{{Carcass}} may have completely muffed the vocal patterns and lyrics, but you'd be lying if J.R.'s voice didn't scare you in the chorus.

* A number of BobDylan's early songs became widely known through their covers. Examples include Peter, Paul and Mary's rendition of "Blowin' in the Wind", the Byrds' covers of "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "My Back Pages", the Turtles' version of "It Ain't Me, Babe", and JimiHendrix's cover of "All Along the Watchtower". That last one became so pervasive, Dylan himself incorporated elements of it into his live show.
** Also, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" has had [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knockin%27_On_Heaven%27s_Door#Covers many, many versions]].

*** Amusingly, there are two JimiHendrix songs in ''Guitar Hero: World Tour'' - but due to an agreement with his family, your guitarist in those songs is ''always'' JimiHendrix, and you can't use Hendrix outside of those songs. Apparently they don't want even the ''illusion'' of covers... (But in retrospect, the Kurt Cobain incident in ''Guitar Hero 5'', which caused controversy due to the fact that his character could be used to play .. erm.. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR_8pgk436gless less fitting songs]], sheds some reasoning behind the Hendrix family's restrictions. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Or not]].)

* On the topic of all things holy, a Power/Thras Metal band named Holy Grail covered Fast As A Shark by Music/{{Accept}} and Music/JudasPriest's Exciter. The covers were modified to be even faster, [[ThePowerOfRock lending two already kickass old school songs even MORE kickassery]].

* JimiHendrix took Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" and cranked it UpToEleven, adding two guitar solos.
** He did the same thing to Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," with the result that [[CoveredUp his cover gets more airplay than the original.]]
* Music/EmilieAutumn has recorded a few covers, some songs covered by her are "I Don't Care Much" from Cabert, "I Know It's Over" originally by Music/TheSmiths, "All My Loving" by The Beatles, a harpsicord cover of "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life", and most recently "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper and {{Queen}}'s "Bohemian Rhapsody".

* Probably the most well-received cover in history was Music/JohnnyCash's cover of the Nine Inch Nails song ''Hurt''. Even Trent Reznor agrees that Cash did a far better job. This popularity does not extend to Cash's other covers of 90s songs, however.

* Music/NineInchNails covered Music/SoftCell's club-hit ''Memorabilia'' and stuck it on the Closer single as a b-side.
