Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails is amazing.

I also love Evile's cover of Pantera's "Cemetery Gates". Both versions are great and I'm not sure which I prefer.

I don't normally like many Beatles covers but this one I really do love. Maybe because it's at the end of one my favorite movies.

Stina Nordenstam can find alien ghosts hidden in the cheesiest songs. Here's her version of I Dream Of Jeannie With The Light Brown Hair.

This motherfucker rules.  This is basically a sound designer's wet dream; this dude doing a bedroom version of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" with all his rad sound equipment, complete with callouts explaining exactly what on-the-fly sound magic he's working at any given time.

Also, he's got a pretty good voice for being such a giant nerd.
