    Meat Puppets playing the Beach Boys' classic Sloop John B. Actually heard them do this live back in July. This is actually awful, but wonderfully weird. Nobody in the audience even knew what the song was. They must have thought it was just a really bad Meat Puppets song.

    Not a cover of a rock song, but Paul Anka's classic My Way ripped to shreds by the Sex Pistols with Sid Vicious singing lead. IMHO, this would have been better with Rotten singing.

    Great cover of one of my favorites, it took buddy's guitar work to do it justice - but got to give proper credit to original writer/performer = John Hiatt.

    Not a rock classic but the Derailers cover of Raspberry Beret off of Reverb Deluxe is pretty sweet
