Trading comments back and forth with [livejournal.com profile] channonyarrow yesterday the topic of Marilyn Manson's "awful" cover of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero" came up. While I defended it by saying it was better than Green Day's cover *twitch*, it made me wonder: how many flipping covers of the song DO I have? Apparently a bunch...

As a basis of comparison here is Lennon's original:
John Lennon - Working Class Hero

And now, a mess o' versions by other big names:
Elbow - Working Class Hero
Green Day - Working Class Hero
Manic Street Preachers - Working Class Hero
Marianne Faithfull - Working Class Hero
Marilyn Manson - Working Class Hero
Ozzy Osbourne - Working Class Hero
Richie Havens - Working Class Hero
Screaming Trees - Working Class Hero
Tin Machine - Working Class Hero

If you're curious about the Tin Machine cover, that was the supergroup fronted by David Bowie in the late 80's.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] channonyarrow, here's that version of Megadeth's "A Tout le Monde" with Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia.
