My favorite is "Tiny Dancer" covered by Ben Folds on his Live album. The guy is truly a master of the baby grand.

Where (what album) can I find Ben's cover of "Crosstown Traffic"?

"Tiny Dancer" covered by Ben Folds

Took the fuckin words right out of my mouth. The man is a God.

More recently, "Boys of Summer" by the Ataris. AMAZING.

Faith by Limp bizkit was even not too bad.

"Me First and the Gimme Gimmies" is a band comprised of folks from several punk bands that ONLY do covers, and did a LOT of classic songs like Brown Eyed Girl and so many other. Go download their stuff.
