Every once in a while, I fantasize about what it would be like if certain bands did covers of certain songs, no matter how unlikely such a thing would be. Johnny Cash did some unusual covers, for example, and he did a wonderful job with them. Yet something tells me he wouldn't have done a cover of Tool's "Stinkfist." But I think I would have really liked it if he DID do that.
Here's a list of others that I've been thinking about:
--Andrew WK doing "Take It Off" by the Donnas
--The Dixie Chicks doing "Cop Killer" by Body Count
--Lostprophets doing GWAR's "Baby Raper"
--Bruce Willis doing anything off of Steven Seagal's MOJO PRIEST
--Five Finger Death Punch doing "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel
--Billy Idol doing "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak
--Cradle of Filth doing "The Revenge of Vera Gemini" by Blue Oyster Cult
--James doing "Sex Type Thing" by Stone Temple Pilots (or maybe even STP doing "Laid" by James)
--Tantric doing "Die Born" by Days of the New (heh, just kidding)
--Rammstein doing "Me and a Gun" by Tori Amos
--Monster Magnet doing "Godzilla" by Blue Oyster Cult
--Seether doing "Seether" by Veruca Salt
--Tom Waits doing "Stagger Lee" by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
--Howling Willie Cunt doing Metallica's version of "So What?"
--Tom Lehrer doing "One More Minute" by Weird Al Yankovic
--Depeche Mode doing "The Bad Touch" by the Bloodhound Gang
--Jerry Cantrell doing "To Be Treated Rite" by Terry Reid
--Dead Kennedys doing "Floyd the Barber" by Nirvana
--The Chicago Bears Shufflin' Crew doing "Ninja Rap" by Vanilla Ice
I could do this all day. (And, in fact, I've been compiling this list for the last three hours.) Do you have any ideas? Make sure to list them in the comments below.
