Favorite Cover Song Ever Heard at a Concert

Last night the Stones' DEAD FLOWERS came on the radio, and as always it brought back my favorite cover song at a concert memory: Grandpaboy (a/k/a/ Paul Westerberg) taking the lead on that one with Golden Smog behind him, at the Rock for Karl show at the Quest in downtown Minneapolis a few years back. That place had to be less than a degree or two from going up in flames given the scorching performance of that song going on up on stage. Anyone else have some good cover song memories?

Crowded House: Throw Your Arms Around Me

One of my favorite covers of all time.

Crowes - a whole ton of songs... Oh Sister, Hot Burrito, Fearless, Long Black Veil, etc.
Alejandro Escovedo - Wish I Was Your Mother
Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings + The Old Crow Medicine Show playing (in succession): The Weight, Going To Acapulco, Odds & Ends

And many others...

At an actual gig, it would probably be Paul Weller doing a version of Gil Scott Heron's The Bottle.

That I've actually seen? Hmmm - Black Crowes always have a few. Really enjoyed their Girl From The North Country and their version of Neil Young's Big Time. Once saw Aerosmith do Train Kept A-Rollin' with Jimmy Page on guitar too which was pretty cool.

The Black Crowes covering The Band's "Up On Cripple Creek" at the 8/4/06 Indianapolis show. I remember sitting front row with my Dad and thinking to myself, how cool is this, sharing this moment with the person who introduced me to the beautiful music of The Band, something I am very thankful for.

That's the only time I've seen Westerberg. Got to the show too late to see his full set.

Gosh, a friend who was "old enough" in the 1960's and is no longer with us going apeshit when Drivin' And Cryin' started their encore with a 60's medly.
Seeing that old fella going nuts to "Pushin' Too Hard" has to be one of my favorite moments.
A close second: enduring the sonic fury of Bob Mould totally deconstructing/reconstructing the wall of sound of "Eight Miles High" in concert at Goofy's Upper Deck. Me, son of a bricklayer (add your own Hüsker Dü aside here), was wondering if such sonics could loosen bricks in a building.
A sentiment revisited when I witnessed/endured MÖTÖRHEAD destroying a thousand ears at First Avenue...
Büt I digress...

Hmm, don't know if it's my favorite cover, but it was really good. Last week I saw the Bottlerockets play in Neenah, WI, and they closed with a cover of Lynnard Synnard's Free Bird. Of course, many bands do this as a joke or what not, but the bottlerockets tore this song up. They actually did the full song, including the extended solo at the end. It really made for a great end to a great show.

oh, I also forgot about this one.... I saw the THIS is american music concert (the drams, grand champeen, two cow garage and glossary) play in milwaukee a while back. At the end of the show most everyone was on stage and played a killer version of Tom Petty's American Girl. I got a video of it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvyCN14_h7M

I saw Pearl Jam cover this song and they bought Marc Seymour up on stage with them. That was seriously awesome.
Also saw Bob Evans and his band cover this while we were in Freemantle a few weeks back, absolutely cracked the place up.

It's Not Fair
