Irish bands like The Pogues, the Young Dubliners and Flogging Molly also do a lot of covers that rock

That cover of tribute is pretty awesome as well, another one to add to the collection
Here are two more, first from HIM

and one from a band that never got well known, even when Marilyn Manson took them under his wing, Jack Off Jill (Kittie before Kittie was Kittie)
I have yet to hear a Slayer song I don't like, but that one may be my new favorite
I have one rule with covers and that is - never try replicating the original version and try put your own spin on things. Otherwise, why do it in the first place? So many artists just give you the same version of a song and it's just pointless.
This is definitely one of my all-time faves.
