Default Songs Your Band Covers

List the top 10 songs (with artist names) your band covers that are either a crowd favorite, or ones your band enjoys playing and does so well (sounding good overall trumps accuracy).

Our band's top 10 (in order - best 1st):

1) The Ocean Breathes Salty: Modest Mouse
2) Tiny Dancer: Elton John
3) Flake: Jack Johnson
4) Folsom Prison Blues: Johnny Cash
5) You Turn The Screws: Cake
6) Doin' Time: Sublime
7) Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1: The Flaming Lips
8) I Will Survive: Cake + Gloria Gaynor (we mix both sounds)
9) Get Up Stand Up: Bob Marley (we do a rock-like version)
10) Pawn Shop: Sublime

We don't really do any covers, but in the past we've done:

Slayer - ...Something off "Live Undead", I forget which one
Dissection - Where Dead Angels Lie

You know, I think that's all we've done.

Default Re: Songs Your Band Covers

My band stopped doing covers once we had enough songs of our own but we played

Hate To Say I Told You So - The Hives
Tangy Zizzle - Kyuss
Earache My Eye - Cheech and Chong/Korn
Tourettes - Nirvana
Four Kicks - Kings of Leon

What we do these days is learn like 30 secs of a good song and plant them in the middle of our own songs. That works well and its good fun!
