* Music/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.

* Music/MarilynManson's first real mainstream hit was a cover of the Music/{{Eurythmics}}' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)".
** See also: Music/MarilynManson's covers of "Personal Jesus" and "Tainted Love".
** People tend to forget that the most popular version of "Tainted Love", by Soft Cell, is ''itself'' a cover, of a 1960s song by Gloria Jones. In fact, Soft Cell recorded their version of the song back-to-back with ''another'' 1960s cover -- "Where Did Our Love Go?", originally recorded by the Supremes.

* "Tainted Love" is a song with a history. People tend to forget that it was originally a 1960s {{soul}} song by Gloria Jones, because the most popular version was by Music/SoftCell. (In fact, Soft Cell recorded their version of the song back-to-back with ''another'' 1960s cover -- "Where Did Our Love Go?", originally recorded by the Supremes.) It has also been given a hard rock treatment by Music/MarilynManson and a {{rockabilly}} treatment by Music/ImeldaMay, among other covers -- some of which seem to be covers of the Soft Cell version rather than the original.

** 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.
