I do agree they are all great, even the Focus cover, Hocus Pocus! But Doctor, Doctor is a personal favorite of mine, Blaze owns this song!

Foo Fighters did a decent cover of "Baker Street" many years ago (was a b-side around 1997 I think)

Also worth a mention was Metallica's version of "So What" (Anti Nowhere League)

R.E.M also covered John Lennons #9 Dream for a charity album a few years ago, this was a pretty good cover too!
