A lot of R&B buffs are going to disagree with me, but...

I also like Maynard and crew a lot but I've never been able to get down with their "No Quarter" cover, simply because I actually really, really like the original. It is one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs, period. One of my students was talking to me about the Tool cover the other day though and I vowed to give it another try so we'll see.

You know, it might grow on me. I think originally I heard one of my favorite bands was doing a cover of one of my favorite songs and I immediately created an expectation for what it may sound like, only to have it sound completely different. The effect of him talking through a megaphone kind of threw me off I think.

After giving it another listen, the cover is an alright song to me, but not one of my favorites by Tool. In my own opinion, I prefer the Led Zeppelin original by a fair shot.
Good post, and yes its a matter of opinion. I couldn't care less what those kids think.

Nirvana - The Man Who Sold the World. Much better than David Bowie's and I'm a huge Bowie fan.

- I really liked a lot of the stuff on the I'm Not There Soundtrack. I like Bob Dylan but more for his songwriting than his voice. Sonic Youth - I'm Not There, Jim James and Calexico - Going to Acapulco, and Stephen Malkmus - Ballad of a Thin Man are all awesome. This is one of the best soundtracks ever.

Yo La Tengo - You Can Have it All. Amazing.

I don't really listen to covers though, I prefer the original most of the time. Even though Johnny Cash is the man, I still prefer the NIN nails version of hurt.

Finally, you list a good cover

The rest you listed were absolutely shit, and totally lazy.
