I know, craziness....I got to wondering if anyone has ever done a decent remake of Sweet Home Alabama....they have a bunch of videos/songs! Kind of a Russkie punk band I guess. Too much vodka.

quote=StewartG;1122018]Okay guys, if Johnny Cash is the "King of Covers" lets not forget about the "Crown Prince."

I can't BELIEVE I forgot about this guy!!! If any of you have seen the television show "The Osbournes" you are already familiar with his work. If not, please allow me to introduce you to the unique musical stylings of Mr. Richard Cheese!
that was awesome!

On the "Here Comes the Sun" remakes... Did you notice that EVERY version after the Beatles sounded JUST like their cut? I think sometimes people realize you can't improve much on perfection.

Okay, wait, I can't help myself... If you liked the Richard Cheese covers, here are a few more...



Here is his version of "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails set to the original video to the song! Priceless! (WARNING - EXPLICIT LYRICS!!!)





Same thing - Richard Cheese remake done to original video. "Creep" by Radiohead.





Okay, sorry for this goofy video - its all I could 'tube. "Insane in the Brain"

When I used to be an early UB40 fan I thought this was a cool song


It was only much later that I found out it's origin

I'm thinking I'm going to go with the original on this one!

Remake (obviously)


Original...This is from "How The West Was Won" not what you usually hear on the radio. Listen to Jimi Page about the 3:27-4:25 point and again at the 6:00 min mark.
