Early Snoop I can live with thanks to some college friends always listening to him and ICP as well as Korn, Slipknot etc but yeah, Snoop covering it
had me cringing and I didn't know Nickelback did it too but theirs is bad also.

That Avril Lavigne cover is horrendous, I don't think there's a single Metallica fan who actually liked her version. I cringe when I even think
Funny, The Metallica dudes enjoyed it. Watch it again.
Once was enough for me lol
Saw it at MTV: ICON back in 2003, hated it and thought "man, the Tallica Boys are really being nice if they're applauding this cheesy, one hit
flavour of the month's crappy rendition of one of their great songs".
Which is ironic because if Avril had bangs, she'd look exactly like one of my best friends in college.
On topic, I like Pantera's covers of "Planet Caravan" (originally by Black Sabbath) and "Cat Scratch Fever" (originally by The Nuge)
I first heard Stiff Little Fingers back in '78 and have been a fan ever since.
They've recorded some truly great original material and some classic covers.
Wailing Covers - Mr Fire Coal Man
SLF - Mr Fire Coal Man
Probably SLF's greatest cover and one of them hair standing on end moments when experienced live.
Bob Marley - Johnny Was
SLF- Johnny Was
Ska, 2-Tone, Punk, Oi, Reggae etc have always influenced each other and the scenes are still very interlinked.
The Specials - Doesn't Make It Alright
SLF - Doesn't Make It Alright
In the early days SLF used to often finish a live set with 'silly encores', a practice that has become relatively common nowadays.
Johnny Preston - Running Bear
SLF - Running Bear / White Christmas
Quite a few more I could have posted as well.
A great band, still recording new material and touring - they are playing live tonight very near to where I live and even though I have seen them
lots of times before I am gutted I'm not going due to a previous committment.
