Jenn Fiorentino does a lot of acoustic punk covers on her channel.  Here are a few

At what point does "adding your spin" to the cover of a song become "DEAR GOD STOP YOU'RE RUINING IT"?

Mentioning because I remembered watching some contestant on one of the six hundred singing shows in the States around 2015 or so do a cover of Extreme's More Than Words that absolutely mutilated it by overcomplicating it to the point of parody.

That's because More Than Words is one of those rare songs that should never be covered, because you simply cannot improve perfection. 

As for competition shows, I am sick to death of hearing contestants do Alicia Keys' Girl On Fire. The Voice seems to have at least one contestant do it per season, and once it actually wasn't as their audition.

Indeed. At most, maybe play with the vocals a tiny smidge.

Upon further review I dig all 3 of these but especially that Ha*Ash cover.

Rob Zombies recent cover of "I've Been Everywhere" made me immediately think of this.  (Ok its the L.A. Rats, but Zombie is the singer)

Rob Zombie is great and I won't hear any slander implying otherwise. <_<

But for real, with Rob Zombie I feel the more 'Rob' it gets, the more bad AND good it gets. And LA Rats is just pure self-indulgent insanity.

Well that would explain his Halloween movies...

Do we count mashups as covers?  Because I've always loved this mashup of Fugazi and Destiny's Child

Here's J Balvin's cover of "Wherever I May Roam". 

EDIT: Ooh, here's Jon Pardi's. Not really sure who this guy is but Wikipedia says he's a country singer. I can dig it.

That dropped earlier today, the other cover of "Don't Tread On Me" from The Metallica Blacklist appears to be by Portugal. The Man, ft. Aaron Beam, the bassist and vocalist of the band Red Fang.

Wow...I read "Weezer" and "Enter Sandman" and expected to cringe.  But Rivers higher vocals, as opposed to James more growling, plus the visuals of the video, actually makes the song just a bit more haunting.  Its great

I really like that, hadn't heard it before. Thanks! It's going to go in a playlist now.

Also, I forgot about this;

I've liked these guys since 2005/2006 when my ex-partner got me into them. They just recently signed to Alternative Tentacles, and this is their first single on the label: a cover of "Rawhide", with Jello Biafra on backup vocals. According to JD Wilkes, he hadn't listened to much Dead Kennedys and was actually unaware that Biafra and the DKs had covered this before when he asked him to be on the track.
