    What's your favorite cover song? Here's some of my favorites, and if you can't tell, I love acoustic type stuff:

    Brett Scallions (lead singer for Fuel) - Daniel (Elton John)

    Pretty much anything by Boyce Avenue. Check out their acoustic covers on YouTube they're amazing, and they cover pop songs you wouldn't think your like. Some of my favorites are Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift and Beautiful Day by Michael Buble.

    This may be the best cover of all time. So good.

    Also, credit to Whiskey in the Jar.

    Ryan Adams is an amazing talent. Thanks for sharing this.

    I'm a fan of him doing "Black Sheets of Rain" from Bob Mould.

    This, or pretty much any other cover by Aaron Lewis. Guy is pretty talented. Puts Rascal Flats ****** version to shame.
