The first one that comes to my mind is Amorphis' cover of "Light My Fire." It's a hidden track (#14) at the end of the re-issue of "Tales from The Thousand Lakes" which includes the "Black Winter Day" EP. It has the expected harsh vocal and chugging guitars; but the organ, of course, is a simulation of the original.

The Swedish, and quite irregular, black metal band Woods of Infinity come to mind. They performed cover versions of Swedish girl group Bubbles' "Rock the World", Mike Oldfield's "Moonlight Shadow", Barry Manilow's "Old Songs", and Harold Blake's "Walking in the Air", from the soundtrack to the "The Snowman" animated film.

I've always found Woods of Infinity's cover versions of pop songs intriguing because they display, in my opinion, an ironic involvement with the bathos which rests at the core of black metal, reflected in the contrived pomposity of pop music (and exaggerated take-offs of it). I would've enjoyed to see them expanding this side of their work, but sadly, they've split up.

Also, this gives me a chance to plug Verglas with their marvelous cover of France Gall's "Poupée de cire, poupée de son": http://youtu.be/H7y7-FsFwQI?t=5m36s

As soon as I read the thread title, I immediately thought of Phantasm. They did a cover of The Yardbirds - For Your Love

Sepultura - Bullet The Blue Sky (U2)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPTObXCGaaA

Anthrax - Exit (U2)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi0XKVPH1nk

Anathema - Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SYVp29Q2BA

Fear Factory - Cars (Gary Numan)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Pa-95S7Hvg

Gamma Ray - It's A Sin (The Pet Shop Boys)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1p5_o30rTBE

At Vance - Money Money Money (ABBA)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDJBXyEZpBE

Entombed - Amazing Grace
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJJrSuDbGJQ

Plus Helloween do loads of good covers.
