    No Youtube videos, but an Amazon album link which has some song samples.

    I know that the AC/DC one was actually pretty darn cool once I listened. I might have to check into the other stuff you mention.

    I loved their rendition of 'Big Balls', the double entendre seemed even thicker

    Let's not forget Shatner's Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds rendition. I can't access Youtube at work (blocked), but if anybody feels like searching up the link, I'm sure its in there.

    I don't consider Shatner's Lucy a song. More like a sonic weapon.

    The former Sen. Sam Ervin, who chaired the 'Watergate Commission', covered Simon & Garfunkel's 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters'.

    It's a real hoot, but I don't know where it can be found.

    What do I win...........?

    Years ago, I had a bunch of Phish concerts on tape. On one of those concerts, they did an impersonation of James Brown singing MMMbop.

    I don't care what anyone else comes up with, that'll always top the list in my book.

    Back in the day, when you could see Cake at the Fox & Goose or Old Ironsides for a $2 cover, they'd bring down the house with "I Will Survive."

    Good times.

    Explody Pup covering SaabFan singing "I am Woman" will always top my chart.

    I don't know which was the original and which was the cover, or if they were both covers, but a pretty surrealiatic juxtaposition is the song "Read 'Em and Weep" done by Barry Manilow and then by Meatloaf. Just *slightly* different takes on it.

    Besides Hayseed Dixie, there is also Iron Horse. They have an all Metallica bluegrass album.
