So, basically the point of this thread is posting a band that you wish would cover another band's song... Meaning, they are covering songs that HAVE NOT BEEN COVER BEFORE by that artist...

What I wish...

Is for Neutral Milk Hotel, sometime soon, when I am still alive to cover The Beatles' "Golden Slumbers", "Carry That Weight" and "The End".

I was thinking Jeff Magnum(The brains behind NMH) could turn in into something like Two-Headed Boy Part 2, something like pouring his heart and soul when he is singing...


Or...


Seeing if Modest Mouse should cover ANYTHING by Neil Young... That would be amazing... Just imagine... Modest Mouse covering "After The Gold Rush" or "Southern Man"...

I would pay anything just to hear what there cover sounds like if they ever did...:o

There are tons of ideas I have for different artist cover different songs... I just wish they would they were real...

    I always had thoughts of AC/DC covering Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meat Loaf.

    I like your ideas, OP. Can't say I would've have expected either of your suggestions. I'm not really sure how well-suited Modest Mouse is for covering Neil Young, though, but I'd probably enjoy it regardless.

    As for myself, I would really like to see The Smiths cover David Bowie's Starman, The Cure cover Bowie's Width of a Circle, and Ozzy-fronted Black Sabbath cover Elvis Presley's version of That's All Right, Mama. The last one would sound pretty awesome, especially if BS did it during their bluesier early days.

    Van Halen cover Life in The Fast Lane by Eagles, AC/DC cover We Will Rock You by Queen, Muse cover Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who, Dream Theater cover Foreplay/Long Time by Boston, Metallica cover Still Alive by GLaDOS and Johnathan Coulton, Queens of The Stone Age cover Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin, and finally, Rage Agaist The Machine cover Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.(As a joke)

    for some reason as soon as i read this i instantly thought that Children of Bodom should do a cover of My Sharona, don't know why, i think it'd be awesome/hilarious though.

    I'd like to see Cat Power and Bob Dylan work together, since she's already covered his tracks before.

    I would like to see My Chemical Romance cover Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin. No joke. I think their singer has the chops to pull it off in the original tuning.

    They covered Desolation Row for the Watchmen soundtrack, I cried.

    They were forced to shorten it and make it crappy, though. If they stuck the original instrumentation and tuning it would sound great.

    Well duh. But they suck, and should not be covering Dylan anyway.

    I was talking about Dazed and Confused, I should've been more detailed. But you're right.

    Honestly, there's too many for me to choose from. I absolutely love covers XD

    I wish every artist that has any kind of success would do a cover album. ...Well, any artist with a distinctive sound, at least. Lord knows Nickelback's cover album would be lulzy.

    Specifically though, I'd like to hear some more covers by System of a Down. I think they did an awesome job with Snowblind.

    That's just a slaughterhouse waiting to happen :D

    I also did want to see Kamelot cover a Megadeth song like Peace Sells, or Aces High by Iron Maiden.

    Ok, heres a weird one... Having the Beatles cover the song "Wake Up" by Arcade Fire... I just loved the original by Arcade Fire... But I just wonder what the Beatle's cover of it would sound like... But, it will never happen... =(

    Also, Slayer covering Blinded By Fear by At The Gates... That would so METAL my head would explode!

    I've always thought it would be amazingly awesome if someone got together a bunch of big-name metal bands to cover well known pop songs. Just try to imagine Judas Priest doing "We Got the Beat". Just try.

    I think that SOAD could do a good cover of Jesus Christ Pose. And just for the record, I think Dave Grohl did a great cover of Who Are You.

    The Jonas Brothers to cover Nirvana's "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter". The irony would be so thick you could cut it with a knife.

    I'd like to hear that, actually. Might be good, although Behind the Wall of Sleep might suit them better.

    No. You don't cover Soundgarden; no one else can pull it off. Why? BECAUSE I BLOODY SAID SO. [/fanboy]
