John Conwell: aka Turbo Research in the visual exploration of data

So I've recently been looking for fun rock / metal covers of songs from the 60's / 70's / 80's. 

My top 3 favorites are:

1. Deadsy's cover of Rush's “Tom Sawyer“
2. Korn's cover of Pink Floyd's “Another Brink in the Wall
3. Metalica's cover of Bob Seger's “Turn the Page“

What are your favorites?
