    don't know if it's already been posted but ben folds' cover of dr. dre's 'bitches ain't shit' is hilarious and fantastic, and i'm not usually a fan. it never gets old hearing ben folds sing 'lick on these nuts and suck the dick'.

    the books (featuring josť gonzalez)' cover of nick drake's 'cello song'. beautiful.

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FwU230utKY[/YOUTUBE]

    and even though i don't really like them, i have to admit bright eyes' cover of daniel johnston's 'devil town' is pretty fucking great. it's basically their best song. not surprising it's not one of their own.

    As much as I love Bright Eyes and Conor Oberst. I think The Killers did a great cover of Four Winds, and made it their own.
