    Interesting band name, Just like Parkway Drive, Crystal Lake sounds like a softcock band.

    How surprised we can be!

    Not really. Camp Crystal Lake was the name of the place Jason Vorhees did all his slayings in the Friday the 13th movies.

    Being a massive Floyd fan I don't normally like covers of their songs but Hey You by Bobaflex is unreal.

    Not really sure if this has been posted yet as I'm not looking back through 11 pages, but just posting this for posterity. Probably my favourite cover of all time. Mike Patton is fking legendary.

    A blast from the past from the early 70's, Colleen Hewett singing Superstar. The Carpenters had a version of the song out but I think Colleen's version is by far the superior version.

    A more rocking upbeat version than Lipps Inc version of Funky Town but I still love Lipps Inc version.

    Going the other way from a hard rock to softer cover, Bely Besarte's cover of Break Stuff is phenomenal.

    If you really want to get into cover songs, I've just bumped into a website called secondhandsongs.com.

    I did a test on it and The Stooges' "Search and Destroy" has 47 cover versions including ones by Soundgarden, You Am I, Skunk Anansie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Def Leppard.

    I could waste months of my life on this website......

    I didn't read this properly and was expecting some Ed Kuepper. Way off.
