We used to do Velvet Revolver - Slither in my old cover band, great drum track. I also loved playing Rod Stewart - Stay With Me, nice tight groove and room for a little solo at the end :-)

Radar Love covered by White Lion.
Whiskey In The Jar Covered by Metallicia. That song is like from the 1700's
Ring of Fire done by Johnny Cash but covered by Social Distortion. It is hard for me to pick which is better. Another one RamJam cover of Hudie "Lead Belly" Ledbettor's Black Betty.
The Ramones cover of What A Wonderful World done by the great Louie Armstrong.
Mafred Mann's cover of Blinded By The Light by Bruce Springsteen.
Ten Thousand Maniacs cover of "because The Night" by John Mellancamp.
