I've read a rumour that Lennon said that this is how the Beatles should have recorded it, but I'm not sure if it's true or not.

Rick Springfield on guitar, Beeb Birtles (later LRB) bass, Darryl Cotton vocals and Rick Brewer drums.

One in reverse. Here's one where I far prefer the original.

If you know 70s music, you will know the cover and who sang it (under an amended title).

The Cowsills' cover of Hair. The song was produced by Bill and Bob Cowsill, who were both around 20 at the time. The kids played all the instruments, the drummer (John Cowsill) was only 12 or so. And the video clip is something else.

This band is simply the best around at covers, They always sound great and their videos are really unique and entertaining and all different styles. And they have dozens of songs on YouTube.

ACDC's "Thunderstruck"


Pharrell's "Happy"


One Direction's "Drag Me Down"


Adele's "Hello"

Not a cover as such as Springsteen’s in the video but the addition of Morello is f***ing amazing

Really grown to like this a lot over the years. It eschews the obvious heavier riffs in the original but the playing is true to the title of the song courtesy of the intricate solos of Japanese guitarist Michio Kurihara (Ghost, The Stars, White Heaven etc)
