The Muffs "Kids In America" Kim Shattuck is my favorite female vocalist. When she screams, it just makes me smile. Check out The Muffs if you don't know them. Rock and roll, baby!
I thought about it a minute... and it came to me. You can't have a thread about covers without Kids In America.
Metallica "The Prince" Cover of Diamond Head. I love this song so much. I love the original, also. This is a relentless, in your face, perfect song.
Motorhead "Hoochie Coochie Man" A b-side to the "Another Perfect Day" album. I listened to this the day I went skydiving with the girl I just broke up with. Haha! But I discovered this album when I did a radio show at Valpo. This is really great!
Waco Brothers "White Lightning" I've seen these guys around 20 times. Never fail to make me happy to be alive. It's a George Jones song.
Many, many more are in my brain, but I guess that's all for now. Listen to the Waco Brothers! Johnny Cash's "Big River" plays after "White Lightning". Both live staples.

Dolly Parton's vocals were a little too "casual" for this one. Jack actually sings it in a way that give the lyrics the appropriate vocals. Seriously though, Dolly Parton doesn't get near the credit she deserves as a songwriter. Whitney Houston died and they just overplayed a song Dolly wrote without even crediting her.

I like most of BADBADNOTGOOD's covers, but this cover of Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" is probably my favorite.
