LoL, you are cheating left, right and center. You yourself must have listed 20-25 tracks.
Maybe you can ask mods to move this to Forums --> Source Material --> Music
And maybe change the Title to something like "List your favorite Rock/Metal tracks"
Cheers,
Raghu
:D I said cheating allowed on subsequent posts. 1st post is the top 5 only.

Nice pointer... and then there is Heart singing Stairway to heaven
Sometimes it is fun to hear your favorite band's music played/sung by someone else in a (completely) different way.
Makes the brain think, rethink and connect the dots. I call it "How to Avoid Alzheimer's Training"

For Floyd junkies, here are a couple that gives me kicks and grins every so often.
Music of Pink Floyd, Orchestral Maneuvers - David Palmer & The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The London Philharmonic Orchestra - Plays the music of Pink Floyd

Cheers,
Raghu

I agree. have you heard Sound of silence by Disturbed ? it has so many more layers and a kind of suppressed angst in it

Oh yes. David Draiman took the S&G melody to another planet.

Another great cover is Chris Cornell singing "Nothing Compares 2 U" at Sirius XM
A Prince track that he gave away to Sinead O'Connor, and revitalized by Chris Cornell.

Here is Chris Cornell and Santana covering Zepp's Whole Lotta Love
This one is just plain raw and visceral

Cheers,
Raghu

YouTube channel 'Frog leap Studio's has some high quality recording cover songs.
A guy from Norway, Leo Moracchioli who does all by himself (vocals, drums, guitar...n then stitch everything together) does cover of popular songs and give a metal flavor to it.
Highly recommend for auditioning metal songs.

Metallica - Sad but true (for level of details, timing and punch)
Jesu - Lifeline (for tonal character and harmonics)
My Dying Bride - The Cry of Mankind (can it really handle drums played loud)
Entombed - Couple of tracks from wolverine blues (how does it play rock n rolla)
White Zombie - Electric head pt 2 (the whole dynamics and energy)

will end the session with NIN - the fragile

Lovely metal twist to the classic. My metal days are long gone but loved it!

I have been mulling on starting a "covers" thread for a while now.
Been gathering links to interesting versions.
Maybe in a week or two I should have enough meat for a thread starter post.
Stay tuned ...
Cheers,
Raghu

Yeah Hotel California is great for auditioning, preferably the live one from Hell Freezes Over. The starting strings, the crowd cheering and the drums, just great. The drums played in it is just the material to check the bass.
