* {{The Black Crowes}} have done many blues and rock standards in their live shows. When they toured with Jimmy Page, he pretty much turned them in a [[Music/LedZeppelin Led Zeppelin]] tribute band. This resulted in the very popular album, "Live at the Greek."

Rosanne Cash covered a Lennon-McCartney ditty called "I Don't Want To Spoil the Party," and took it to No. 1 in 1989, the only cover of a Beatles song to ever top the ''Billboard'' country chart; additionally, country crooner Anne Murray's cover of "You Won't See Me" (another Lennon-McCartney creation) was a top 10 pop hit in the spring of 1974, and was part of a double-sided "A" hit, whose flip was itself a cover (not the Beatles but an old Music/George Jones song) ... "[[TheCoverChangesTheGender He Thinks I Still Care]]."

** Music/TheBeatles themselves recorded their share of covers, especially early in their career -- see "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Too Much Monkey Business", which are just two of their Music/ChuckBerry covers, and "Twist and Shout", originally by the Top Notes (with the second most famous version being by the Isley Brothers).

Another famous cover was "Act Naturally," originally a country hit for Music/BuckOwens; Music/RingoStarr, who sang lead on the Beatles' version, went on to record a duet version with Owens in 1989, and it became a respectable-sized hit.

* Music/GunsNRoses had a full-on CoverAlbum (''The Spaghetti Incident?''), and their debut EP ''Live Like A Suicide'' is borderline (two are covers, two are from Hollywood Rose, the early incarnation of the band). Through their career, they had so many ''{{Greatest Hits|Album}}'' has five (two from ''The Spaghetti Incident'', two from ''Music/UseYourIllusion''- [[Music/BobDylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"]], [[Music/PaulMcCartney "Live and Let Die]]" - and a soundtrack-recorded version of [[Music/TheRollingStones "Sympathy for the Devil"]]). In concerts there were many more, including "Whole Lotta Rosie", which probably helped Axl Rose get a guest singer gig at Music/{{ACDC}}.
