    Jaron-Pearl Jam`s version of Crazy Mary sucked,even with Victoria Williams helping along,it does`nt beat hearing Victoria singing it.
    Yet I can mention Victoria`s cover of Spirit`s Nature`s Way with Dave Pirner(blech!) sucked because of Pirner.I know Victoria`s voice is`nt for everyone,but she`s done better team ups like with Giant Sand is way better then Pirner.

    cool points for den buck for mentioning Tarnation.

    i agree with spaceboy on these two!
    other great covers in my opinion are:

    Head On – Pixies (orig JAMC)
    Leaving on a Jet Plane – Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
    Supernaut – 1000 Homo DJs
    Boys of Summer – Codeseven
    Like a Prayer – The Rondelles
    Saturday Night – Ned’s Atomic Dustbin
    Alphabet Street – Jesus and Mary Chain

    and these two crack me up every time:
    Mr Bungle – Baby One More Time
    Bedhead/Macha – Believe (Cher)

    Fiona Apple- Across the Universe (can’t stand John Lennon’s flat, nasaly voice)
    Tori Amos- 97 Bonnie & Clyde
    Marilyn Manson- I Put a Spell on You (not necessarily BETTER than Screamin’ Jay, but definitely measures up)
    Diamanda Galas- I Put a Spell on You (ditto)
    Diamanda Galas- The Thrill is Gone
    Marilyn Manson- Five to One (MM have always reminded me of the Doors anyway; it was cool to hear them cover this song)
    Stevie Ray Vaughan- Voodoo Chile
    Janis Joplin- Me & Bobby McGee
    Reverend Horton Heat- Five-O Ford (it’s a discreet cover of ‘Hot Rod Lincoln’ by Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen; I think there was an even earlier version but I’m not sure who did it)
    Nirvana- Where Did You Sleep Last Night
    Pearl Jam- Last Kiss
    Pearl Jam- Sonic Reducer
    Pearl Jam- Soldier of Love
    LeAnn Rimes- Blue
    Godhead- Eleanor Rigby
    The Animals- I Put a Spell on You
