A lot of people hate this cover, but I kind of like it myself (mainly because of Cassadee Pope):

Vonnegutt - When I Come Around



And I'm also huge on Dia Frampton now. This cover of Mumford & Sons is one of my favorites by her:

Dia Frampton - The Cave

I don't know if it's been mentioned in this thread yet, but I really enjoyed Lady Danville - Kids (cover of the MGMT song). I prefer the cover as it is really melancholic and laid back, but I also do like the original song as well.

That Anberlin cover of Enjoy The Silence is good but the best version of that song ever recorded (including the original) is by Failure:

Heard the Blues Traveler cover of "What I Got" I thought it was really well done.

And here's a cover of the theme song to JEM! by Freezepop:

Metal piano covers are pretty interesting, especially to people who might not be a fan of that type of music. You could play them the piano version and then the actual version and their reaction is pretty interesting. I always hope it helps those people see how beautiful a lot of metal really is at it's roots.

Anyway, I know most people probably aren't big fans, but I love this entire album, and this is the standout track on Cruelty and the Beast... And the piano version is particularly haunting/pretty.

Easy, my favorite cover of all-time involves my favorite band of the 1990s (the criminally unknown Bedhead) paying homage to my favorite band of the 1970s (Joy Division), with this gloriously ramshackle reworking of "Disorder", recorded to one mic in a single take on a one-off session at a small TX church.

Yes, they certainly are and it truly is beautiful music at it's roots. I've never been a huge Cradle fan but that was a nice rendition of the song. :applause:

What other metal albums or bands have you found with piano covers?

I love the way they do that song. Have you ever heard Patton's Italian record? It's absurd but super cool at the same time.

It's a great tribute to the 60s cinema sounds coming out of Italy. He kills this tune. What Patton has going for him, that a lot of Patton fans don't realize, is that the tune was pretty good to begin with (Morricone composed it).

Patton's the kind of person who you just hope keeps working and working. Even though I don't care for some of the experimental stuff he puts out, I admire the effort. I hope something like what Kickstarter has done for classic/indie game producers would come along for similar figures in music.
