I love it when metal bands pull off a cover that works really well! Sure, sometimes you get a stinker but in my experience most of the time, the cover is done really well!

A lot of my personal favorites are:

'Cold Sweat' originally by Thin Lizzy, covered by Sodom, Helloween, Jorn, and The Sword
'Angel of Mercy' originally by Chastain, covered by HammerFall
'Kill the King' originally by Rainbow, covered by Stratovarius, Liege Lord, Jorn, and Metallica
'Roundabout' originally by Yes, covered by Allegaeon
'Painkiller' originally by Judas Priest, covered by Death
'White Rabbit' originally by Jefferson Airplane, covered by Sanctuary
'Godzilla' originally by Blue Oyster Cult, covered by Fu Manchu

There are probably others but I can't remember them atm. Will edit list as I remember them or others remind me.

Off the top of my head (I haven't heard the originals of some, but these are all great tracks from these artists):

Ancient Wisdom - Powerslave (Iron Maiden)
Paradox - A Light in the Black (Rainbow)
Blind Guardian - Mr. Sandman (The Chordettes)
Rebellion - The Clans Are Marching (Grave Digger, but it's ex-members of Grave Digger so...)
Iced Earth - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden)
Nightwish - Walking in the Air (Howard Blake)
Arjen Anthony Lucassen - Veteran of the Psychic Wars (Blue Öyster Cult)
Sanctuary - White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane)
Cruachan and Shane Mac Gowan - Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy) - A very different, non-metal take, was released by Arven, which is also good)
Cruachan - Some Say the Devil is Dead (Wolfe Tones)
Allegaeon - Roundabout (Yes)
Kylesa - Set Your Controls For the Heart of the Sun (Pink Floyd)

I've got shitloads of them. I collect them on Spotify and have a playlist of them. They aren't necessarily metal, but just songs I like." rel="nofollow -

Here's a few favourites:
Sundown - Nine Pound Hammer (originally by Gordon Lightfoot)

Angry Inch - Type O Negative (originally from the musical Hedwig and The Angry Inch)

Blood Makes Noise - Acid Reign (originally by Suzanne Vega - and she's in the video)

Marijuana - Brujeria (parody of Macarena by a couple of old men. Los Del Rios maybe?)

Tear It Loose - Entombed (originally by Twisted Sister)

Lowlife - Napalm Death (originally by Cryptic Slaughter)

There's a good few I really like on Metallica's Garage Inc as well.
