    I.e:

    Wouldnt it rock if Radiphead covered Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here ?Or Thwe Wall?

    In similiar fashion, pick a band that could cover another artist's record and you think would do it well.

    Off the top of my head:

    Icarus Line covering The Stooges' Raw Power.

    Oasis covering The Who's Quadrophenia.

    Mos Def & Talib Kweli covering Public Enemy's It Takes A Nation Of Millions...

    The roots Covering A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory

    Sigur Ros covering GSY!BE's Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heavens

    Of Montreal covering The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour and/or Sgt. Pepper

    Bj?rk covering Radiohead's Kid A

    Prince covering the Jimi Hendrix Experince's Are You Experinced?

    elliot smith covering Nick Drake's Pink Moon ( :sad )

    Ryan Adams covering Jeff Buckely's Grace

    Rayn Adams covering Elliot Smith's Figure 8

    Devin Townsend doing Pink Floyds the Wall (to hear Devy doing Comfortably Numb would probably require to change my shorts more than once)

    Opeth covering Rush' 2112 That would be fucking brilliant.

    Primus covering ANY Johnny Cash.

    I'm of the opinion that it should be illegal to cover the infamous Pink Floyd, though if anyone were to do it, Devin would be the one I'd be the most receptive to.

    I'd like to see Modest Mouse cover Sun Kil Moon. It's only fair to return the favor, and a MM version of Duk Koo Kim would be VERY interesting. XD

    I would pay to see that, so long as Opeth wasn't too growly in that endeavor. :oh

    And that R.E.M. should be loosed on the dept, Less. :wink
