Metallica's version of Blue Oyster Cult's "Astronomy" and Pain of Salvation's cover of The Scorpions' "Yellow Raven." I like Opeth's version of Alice in Chains' "Would?" but I don't really think it's better than the original.

Within Temptation
Faith and the Muse
The Lund Clements Churchill Trio (no video at all, unfortunately)

The Birthday Massacre - "I Think We're Alone Now" (Tommy James & The Shondells, although the cover is actually more of Tiffany's version) and "The Neverending Story" from their Imagica days (Limahl)

Metallica - "Die Die My Darling" (The Misfits)

The Last Dance - "Dead Man's Party" (Oingo Boingo), "Deliverance" (The Mission; the TLD version isn't on there, sadly, but there's a snippet in the old listen box on Amazon if you scroll down), "Oops, I Did It Again" (Britney Spears, which there's frankly no need to link to)

*AMV

"Somebody To Love" (Jefferson Airplane):
