Came to Neil Young via the double-live 'Weld' album - the overblown sonics suited the grungy late 80's/90's aesthetic... he's been covered a lot in a variety of different ways

Type O Negatives goth-metal cover is probably my fave. The baritone delivery gives it a great vibe even if it lacks the bite of Neil & Sampedros guitar sound -

Neil Youngs 'Weld' version -

I don't think anyone could say that they don't know this song by Smokie .... but did you know it was originally recorded by 'New World' in 1972.

Probably one of the better JD covers out there followed by a few I stumbled across over the years that take things in very different directions. The fact they still work is testimony to the genius of JD.

GvsB - She's Lost Control


Spoek Mathambo


Grace Jones


And theres a Dita Von Tess version on Youtube you can find which is definitely NSFW (and surprisingly not terrible).

The original
