I agree that Metallica's cover of Astronomy was pretty awesome.  So were the kids doing Tool.  I'd also like to throw out Sebastian Bach's cover of Godzilla was amazing. 

One of my alltime favorites ... Steel Panther's cover of Whole Lotta Rosie:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woX3LuDItgU

Who's the more foolish - the fool, or the fool who follows him?

Geoff Tate seems to have a "vested" interest in being in Queensryche.

The Deftones' cover of Duran Duran's tune The Chauffeur is pretty great.

EDIT: Damn, so is the Sneaker Pimps version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNEsJI-5wZs
That Man/Machine Imperfection guy didn't post too much, but he was pretty much always right.

Since they weren't mentioned. The Krokus and Devil's Train versions of American Woman by The Guess Who are definitely worthy of mention here.

Tough one to improve upon, but that is a nice rocked up version of it. Like that one.

This is probably the only cover version of an Alex Harvey Band song that I can recall. The Cult doing Faith Healer.
