    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    However, you're wrong about it being the definitive cover:



    The off beat 12-string intro, the way it slowly builds up, and the three distinctly different guitar solos one after the other. Jimi Hendrix so knocked it out of the park with this song that Dylan started doing it this way.

    This is just unrecognisable after the intro:
    I love that song specifically because Warrel Dane just felt like using the Simon and Gurfunkle lyrics over that riff Jeff Loomis had. It was never intended to be a cover.

    Not sure if this counts, but George Michael kicks the shit outta this song:

    My personal fave:



    Also, Matty, you're on crack. That cover of "Africa" is everything that's ever been wrong with "metal" covers of anything. It *subtracts* from the original song.
    You can't mention the Realm cover of Eleanor Rigby and then not mention Reverend's "Fortunate Son" cover. Although as far as thrash goes, Exodus's cover of "Low Rider", Destructions cover of "My Sharona", and Sodom's cover of "Surfing Bird" are all over the top ridiculous too.

    This cover was actually my introduction to Cake, but then I kinda lost track of them. Still love this cover:
