Don't tell him how to make a record, he was in Nirvana

Has there ever been a major label band in love with the cover as much as the Foo Fighters*? You've probably heard their cover of Band on the Run (with all its bizarre changes, it allows for all sorts of fun.) It doesn't reach the glory of Baker Street, surely one of the world's finest covers.

But that is just the start of the coverdom.I have a special place in my heart for the creeptacular cover of Gary Numan's Down in the Park. And who on Earth has ever covered Ace Frehley? The Foo Fighters, and very well I might add. And why not cover The Arcade Fire?

God bless you Mr. Grohl.

*Well, OK, maybe the Byrds.
