It's got Marco from Nightwish in and personally I don't like the covers, OH likes them though.

Not sure it really counts as a cover as he appeared on the original, but Seal's version of Killer without Adamski is SO much better!
Sorry, can't get my links to work whenever I try so I don't bother!

Pictures of Lily - David Bowie. One of the best Who covers I've heard (and that includes Limp Bizkit's version of Behind Blue Eyes, which is also awesome).

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are great.

I have two of their albums, love their version of Hello and Country Roads.

Latest cover i'm listening to is a new b side by Beady Eye

A cover of 'sons of the stage', originally done by 'World of twist', an 80's band i had never heard of.

I didnt bother with that single, havent got a record player anyway and didnt want to buy one just to flog on ebay.

They wont be playing any Oasis tunes, they've said that publically. I'm excited but nervous, the first download 'bring the light' i wasnt keen on at first but its a grower, just a bit different to what i'm used to.

Got 6 tickets to see them in London in March so looking forward to it. Nervous about the album, it'll be cool getting some new tunes, i'm not expecting a stunning album but hope theres a few half decent ones. I'm glad there'll be some new songs though. I love noel but if he had his way there wouldnt be any new music for a few years. Cant wait for the concerts though, should be good

Cracker of an Aussie band that seem to have lost their way a bit. Some cover versions which can be a bit hit and miss:

Easybeats "I'll Make You Happy"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Bpk5-5x ... C&index=25

Easybeats "She's So Fine"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQ6LvKjK ... re=related

Clash "London Calling"
