There is a Metal version of Shell Shocked originally by Juicy J. I think it was from the Turtles soundtrack. It is pure fire because it has these Rap elements but also adds some heaviness to it!

That's a tough question!!! It changes every time, but I think right now it's gotta be EDEN's version of Billie Jean:

Here's a cover of Seal's mega-hit Crazy I did on my last album:

And here's a playlist of just covers of Crazy including the original by Seal:

I think this cover of Zedd's song "The Middle" is awesome.

Nice choices, @goldy44 and @hberryfriend! I didn't know some of these existed.

 

And @BradAcord, I think this contends as a rare example where the cover is better than the original, for me. A really nice version of a pop hit; I like the way he changed the whole tone by lowering the dynamics and stripping it of some instruments.

Stand By Me by Florence + The Machine. It was actually their Final Fantasy XV EP that got me into listening to the rest of their music!

My Boyz Beatz's and Darshae's take on Ariana Grande's "One Last Time". Caribbean-influenced and beautiful vocals.
