I think Coldplay could do a great version of Ultraviolet. Imagine Chris Martin singing the chorus. Come to think of it Chris Martin could sing alot of the songs in the encore of ZooTV. He sort of has that Mirrorball Man/MacPhisto feel to his voice.

If you think Radiohead can't handle The Fly then you know very little about Radiohead. The band that did "Fake Plastic Trees" has been dead for a decade. Even when it came out it was not exactly indicitive of their sound...

I always thought Bullet the Blue Sky would be a perfect fit for Rage Against the Machine. It's like that song was written FOR them. Alas, they broke up, but I can dream.

Radiohead's one of my favorite bands, and I think musically they can sure as hell handle The Fly, but do you really think Thom Yorke can sing a credible version?

Talking bout Coldplay, one song it would fit I think , and to be honest I'd like indeed to see them perfoming is Sort of Homecoming ...... Martin has said over and over is his favorite , said he sings a lot for his children ........ And imagine it could actually work , Most of Edge's riff , specially the intro could be done only on the piano , then the band could walk in ......

I wonder specially if Martin would be able to carry all the "Tonites !" or "Just a Scream !" .....

BTW if anyone feels like rejectin this idea of mine , such as I wasn't comfortable with this last discussion ....... , Feel free to do it

Yeah, I think he'd mangle this song at any signs of passion in the song / the "tonight" and "just a scream" parts in particular.

U2girl mentioned Sweetest Thing, it has a piano, and since Chris Martin invented pianos he'd be comfortable with that.

agree on Rage doing a cover of Bullet, that would be SWEET, whenever I listen to BTBS I get the urge to listen to RATM, or visa versa if only...

Thought of a new one...

Audioslave should cover "Love And Peace Or Else"

Cornell's vocals, Morello's guitar... man that would be AWESOME

I think Ministry could do a mean rendition of "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car". Henry Rollins could do a screamo version of "Numb." Try to imagine "Discoteque" being sung by a boy band....

I heard this band called Hawk Nelson (big Christian band) play tonight, and they did a snippet of With or Without You during a song, and it was pretty darn good...they should cover the whole song, it would rock!

Ahh man, that would be awesome. I also love the idea of them taking on UTEOTW. Pearl Jam covering U2 (even with short snippets like "A Sort of Homecoming") =

At a recent concert, a chick-fronted band called Flyleaf did a cover of "Pride" featuring Richard Patrick of Filter doing guest vocals.

They fucking nailed it.
