Hello everyone! Sorry if the title is a little misleading, but I'm looking for some covers by Thrash and Speed metal bands of non-metal music!

Some cover song's I've already heard that I really like are Heathen's cover of The Sweet's "Set Me Free", and Realm's cover of the Beatles "Eleanor Rigby":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj6llc4F ... re=related - Heathen "Set me Free" (The Sweet)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH_-RaUNXh8 - Realm "Eleanor Rigby" (The Beatles cover)

Before anyone suggests anything from Megadeth or Metallica, I've already heard it! Also, please don't suggest any death metal, or anything with overly harsh vocals. I'm just not into it at the moment!

Hope to get some awesome suggestions! Thanks in advance!

Slayer made a cover album and Flotsam and Jetsam covered Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting"

Thanks for all the suggestions so far everyone! I'm in classes at the moment, but I will make sure to listen to them as soon as I get the chance!

@ZOMBIE
I already have Slayer's cover album, but it's not necessarily what I'm looking for. Something more along the lines of high energy, higher pitched clean vocals! And I've already heard Flotsam and Jetsam's cover! One of theirs that I really like! Thanks again!

Keep em' coming!

The only thing that comes to mind is Metal Church's cover of Highway Star, although I'm sure you already know that one. Deep Purple isn't entirely Metal and Metal Church really adds a lot of energy to it so I think it's worth reccomending.

Finally got a chance to listen to all of your suggestions!

@childrenofthenight
Kind of interesting, although the vocals aren't exactly what I was looking for. Still though, it's always cool to hear a cover that has ones own twist on it!

@dontlivefastjustdie
Not exactly what I'm looking for, but definitely different then the original, which is always nice! Pretty cool cover!

@Spiner202
Sorry, I can't say I have before, but it's really awesome! Just what I'm looking for! Keep them coming if you know of anymore like this! :D

Thanks again everyone! Another great cover that I've heard is Wrathchild Americas version of Pink Floyd's "Time"!

Sodom did a cover of Bryan Adam's "The Kids Wanna Rock" on The Saw is the Law EP. I don't know if the vocals are too harsh than what you requested, but it's worth a shot.

Vader does a cover of a depeche mode song. you can find it on De Profundis or Future of the Past. It's not a fast song, but it's kinda cool, check it out

I don't know how familiar you are with Anthrax, but just in case:

Fistful of Metal - I'm Eighteen (Alice Cooper)
Persistence of Time - Got the Time (Joe Jackson)
State of Euphoria - Antisocial (Trust)

Some others:

Coroner - I Want You (She's So Heavy) ... The Beatles
Destruction - My Sharona ... The Knack
Exodus - Overdose / Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap ... AC/DC

I'm sure I know of more - I just can't think of them at the moment.

I about to check out the Destruction cover. Sounds hilarious!

Blind Guardian covered Barbara Ann, In a gadda da vidda, Surfin in the USA, and Mr. Sandman

Demons & Wizards covered White Room and Immigrant Song

[Edit] remembered some more

IF you're ok with modern thrash, try Coverkill by Overkill. Their cover of Hymn 43 (Jethro Tull) is really good.

A really well known one is Megadeth's cpver of Anarchy In The UK. Surprised it's not been mentioned yet. And yeah, Slayer and Overkill have done tons of punk covers.

Another one Nuclear Assaults "Happy Days" was an amusing cover. To be honest there are so many it is actual difficult to remember many at one time, this could get to be a long thread!

@MercyfulSatyr
Yes, yes I have haha! I have all their albums, so I've heard all those covers, but thanks again! I'll taken a listen to your other suggestions, even though I can't seem to get into Coroner (It's the vocals), and I've already heard Exodus's cover of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap". Thanks again though!

@HamburgerBoy
I'll take a listen to it, but I wasn't to impressed with the vocals. Thanks for the rec though!

@Slag
Wow, Blind Guardian has done a few! I'll make sure to take a listen to them as soon as I get the chance. I'll also take a listen to the Demon's & Wizards ones!

@Whiskey_Bonbons
Haven't heard it, but I'll make sure to later! Thanks!

@STORMM
As I mentioned earlier, I have the majority of Anthrax's albums, so I have already heard their cover of "Friggin in the Riggin"! Also, I've already heard Sanctuary's cover of "White Rabbit", which is pretty cool! I haven't heard Nuclear Assaults cover of "Happy Days" yet though, and I like quite a bit of their stuff, so I'll check it out! Thanks!

@206
As I stated earlier, I wasn't really impressed with The Accused's vocals, but I'll give that song a listen! Thanks!

Destruction covered The Knack's "My Sharona" on the Cracked Brain album, Gothic Slam did Thin Lizzy's "Thunder & Lightning" on the just a face.. cd, great version. Pain done The Beatles "Elenor Rigby" on their nothing remains... album, Acid Reign covered The Nerves "Hanging On The Telephone" as well as Bad News "Warriors of Ghangis Khan" on their worst of... album. Tankard covered “Try Again” by Geniale Spermbirds on the morning after album. Annihilator covered AC/DC’s “Riff Raff” on the re-released refresh the demon album. Korean thrashers Crash covered Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water” on their endless supply... album, I believe Metalium also covered this song. This release is not speed/thrash but Helloween did a full album of covers on their cd “Metal Jukebox”.

@MercyfulSatyr
Took a listen to Coroner's cover, and still can't seem to get into them due to the vocals. No offense if your a big fan, as I've only heard good things about them, but the vocal's just aren't my style! Destruction's cover of "My Sharona" was pretty cool though! Thanks for the rec!

@HamburgerBoy
Wow, I had already heard that song before, and had no idea it was a cover! Learn something new every day! Thanks again!

@Slag
Barbara Ann and Surfin USA are a little to close to the originals for my tastes, but that cover of Mr. Sandman is effin' awesome, and their cover of "In a Gadda Da Vidda" is pretty good to! Demon & Wizard's cover of "White Room" is wicked awesome (I love the original), and "Immigrant Song" isn't bad either! Nice rec's!

@Whiskey_Bonbons
That was pretty awesome! If only Jethro Tull actually sounded like that, then I could that whole Grammy win years back would have made sense!

@206
As I stated earlier, I wasn't really impressed with The Accused's vocals, but I'll give that song a listen! Thanks!

@STORMM
That's awesome lol! I can always count on Nuclear Assault to put a smile on my face! Thanks for that! :D
Also, I'll get to all those other ones you just suggested!

@Ericfg
That's a pretty cool cover! Thank's for the rec!

First; personal props for personally answering everyone hear. Good on ya mate!

Secondly; a couple posts back of yours - Screaming for Vengence rocks!

Thirdly; yea I agree with you B.A. and S. USA.

-Also Slayer and Jag Panzer did a In a Gadda Da Vidda cover. Both good takes.

-Iron Maiden did I'm a mover by Free as well as Communication Breakdown by Zepplin.

-Grave Digger's album Lost Tunes from the Vault has a bunch of covers

-Running Wild did revolution by The Beatles

-Not a fan of Hammerfall myself but they do have an album of around 20 covers. It is called Masterpieces.

That ought to fill your plate :D

I try my best to reply to everyone's suggestion in hopes that I'll get better results! It seems to be paying off so far! But thanks!

Yes, Iced Earth's cover of "Screaming for Vengeance" rocks! It's something about the bass and drums at the start the does it for me! The bass frequency's might be pumped up on my copy of the song, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

I've already heard Slayer's version of In a Gadda Da Vidda, but I'll definitely take a listen to Jag Panzers! I already like some of their stuff when Chris Broderick was still on guitar, so I can't seem them doing anything bad with it!

I'm sure I've heard of Maiden's covers as I have a copy of their "Best of the B'Sides", but I'll give them another listen!

I'll try and check out those cover's that Grave Digger did, but I have to admit, I'm more into Grim Reaper haha! Also, I'll give Hamerfalls covers a go! And Ericfg posted about Running Wild's cover of "Revolution" a few posts back, but thanks again!

Yea it is a funny cover, they also covered Led Zep's "Good Times..Bad Times..." and Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz", I think you should like these also.
Also check out MOD's stuff, especially "Surfin mod" cd, it features a few covers of the the likes of the Beach boys, Scream, Chicago etc they also have other covers on other albums such as The Fear's "Livin In The City", The Functional Idiots "He's Dead Jim", they even have a funny cover of the Bonanza theme song.

That Communication Breakdown cover is horrible! I love Maiden but Bruce ruins that song!

Their cover of Massacre by Thin Lizzy is pretty godawful too.

To elaborate, both are musically competent but they just can't touch the originals and Bruce's vocals don't fit at all.

A great Maiden cover would be Doctor, Doctor (UFO)

And yeah, this is kinda off topic, my bad!

I believe I've already heard their cover of "Good Times... Bad Times...", but I'll give it a listen just in case I haven't already. I don't think I've heard their cover of "Ballroom Blitz", so I'll definitely give that a listen!

Seeing as how I've never listened to any M.O.D., I'll have to give your rec's a listen! The Chicago cover sounds like it would be quite interesting! Thanks again for the rec's!

@Pippin_Took
It wasn't exactly my favorite cover album either, but I think it's just because I love Maiden's original stuff way more. I guess it's easier to see new bands covering their stuff or something!

Intruder "I'm not your stepping stone" (Monkees cover) and "25 or 6 to 4" (Chicago cover)

Believer Like a Song (U2 Cover)

those covers are great [especially Viking one!!!]

Thanks for the rec! It's a pretty sweet cover!

@Acidchrist
I've already heard "Got the Time", but I'll definitely take another listen! Thanks for reminding me!

@Bloodkrishna
Thank's for the rec's! I have to admit though, they weren't really what I'm looking for! Thanks again though!

@xXxJackpotxXx
