Yep...Five Finger Death Punch's cover of "Bad Company" kicks major ASS! Nuff said!

I normally say "don't touch Skynyrd"...but Shinedown did an awesome job on their cover "Simple Man". Brent Smith has a soulful voice...he really pulled it off! The "official videos won't play anymore...but I still like this version:

Metallica gave Bob Seger's "Turn The Page" a little more "meat"...really thickened up the sound.

I never took Limp Bizkit seriously...especially Fred Durst (thought he was a punk) until I heard their version of The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes". The "Speak and Spell" voice spellin' out "Discover L...I...M...P" wasn't the best move...but that toy holds a very special meaning for me...so it worked for me outside of the song.

And the WARPED side of me actually gets a kick out of this remake (originally done by the Chordettes) of "Mr. Sandman". Check out Blind Guardian's (German metal band) version...*snicker* ;-p~
