I think I actually like this one much more than the original:

  



Not sure I'd say they're favourites because I can't say I pay much attention to covers but a couple of decent covers worth mentioning here IMO, and the only two I instantly thought of.

a great great cover. It's not metal but i love it. The original is by Marcy playground. maroon five covered sex and candy on their excellent new album v and it sounds just like it could have been written by themselves for their first album Songs About Jane.

Could only think of two songs, 'Kill the King' by Liege Lord(orig. Rainbow), and 'Painkiller' by Death(orig. Judas Priest). Couldn't think of a 3rd, sorry! *Would probably help if I wasn't so inebriated. XD

Shadows Fall - Welcome to the Machine (Pink Floyd cover)
Killswitch Engage - Holy Diver (Dio cover)

Still really like all these covers, but top 3 now would probably be this:

Judas Priest - Diamonds and Rust (Joan Baez cover)
Riot - Born to Be Wild (Steppenwolf cover)
Soundgarden - Smokestack Lightning (Howlin' Wolf cover)

3 Honorable mentions that aren't in that last post:

Metallica - Crash Course in Brain Surgery (Budgie cover)
Anthrax - Phantom Lord (Metallica cover)
Korn - Earache My Eye/Scatterbrain - Earache My Eye (Cheech and Chong cover) Korn's cover actually sounds a bit like Cathedral, particular with the vocals having a very Lee Dorian-esque exuberance to them.

I did not actually know this was a cover at first, because my promo material for the album neglected to include that information. I don't know the original. But this is a killer track and actually my favourite from this album:



I only heard the original of this yesterday in a film, but I always felt this cover really fit into the concept of the main album so well:



I am not a Pink Floyd fan, but I love this cover version (though in fact this is one of the few PF songs I like anyway):



I'm not sure if that's strictly my top 3 of all time, but it is the first 3 that came into my head when I saw this topic.

^Never heard that cover before, but it's one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs so I'll make sure to check it out. I do love their slowed down cover of Paranoid.

Forgot a couple Stones covers that have become favorites recently:

Blue Cheer - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
Lucifer - Dancing With Mr. D

How did I forget Budgie's cover of Baby Please Don't Go, now that's one of my favorites. Has to have one of the best bass tones in classic metal.
