Alien Ant Farm's version of "Smooth Criminal" would probably qualify seeing as AAF didn't exactly have much of a career after "Smooth Criminal" because people (me included) realised that they weren't very good.

Can you list remarkable songs in unremarkable eras of good bands as well?

Sure, why not?

Fallujah strike me as yet another very unremarkable tech death band but this song is actually really fucking good

Children of Bodom - Kissing the Shadows

I've always liked this song and the solos at the end are killer. Not a fan of any of their other work though.

I've always love the song Handlebars by the Flobots though I can't stand the rest of their music but damn is that song incredible.

Der Letze Triumph by Forest Of Fog. I don't think they're unremarkable as such, they're quite enjoyable, but this song is a masterpiece. I remember the first time I heard it I got about two minutes in, paused it and bought the album on the spot.

Damn, that was a good song! Basically exactly what I've been in the mood for lately. Thanks for posting that!

The Night - Disturbed

Very melodic song. Great vocals and a killer guitar solo.

I would suspect a large number of non-metal bands in this thread. I just recently got hooked on Head Up by Deftones, although the rest of their catalog is pretty boring to me.

I do not like Cheap Trick, but this song fucking kicks ass. This song makes me want to stomp some heads, and I love the negative hateful lyrics concerning the protagonists hometown, how much he hates it, and how cool he is for building a girl up then not fucking her, because he's so damn fucking cool and full of rock power.
