    Mainstream song covers on the radio, that you should have heard at least once are blame-full for their lack of ideas and shabby commercial approach to the music. But fortunately there are some good covers to counter that. And many of them do really hit the spot and give a new twist to the original songs.

    Here I propose you to share some cover versions which deserve to be mentioned.
    I'll start:

    Johnny Cash's Hurt fits that criteria.

    I love the cover done for 'The Sound of Silence' that David Draiman did of Simon and Garfunkle's original folk song work of the song.

    Dead can Dance always have had a quiet bizarre perception of music itself, which was emphasised by use of odd middle-age instruments. Bauhaus cover sounds more solemn to me.

    Deftones did an amazing cover of a Duran Duran song.


    For reference, here is the original:

    I like to think of the NIN version as a "preemptive cover."

    I ended up finding an amazing cover today of This Machine by Julian K done by someone called Groundbreaking. The funny thing is the cover is a year old already almost. Anyone who has ever played Sonic Heroes would definitely appreciate it. The thing is the game was pretty fun, the voice acting was laughably horrible, but the one thing that was amazing as hell was the Soundtrack. Team Dark's theme was one of the musical highlights of the game for sure.
