My #1 is "Policy of Truth" by Depeche Mode.

It has been done by some band, I heard it once but it was poorly done. The band I was in 10 years ago attempted to do it but it never sounded like we wanted it to...

I know, 80's pop....but Depeche Mode is my guilty pleasure and it is a great song.

Agree with the band, but I chose a different song.

Been trying to get Livesay to remake Hold The Line for YEARS.

Didn't Nonpoint make a remake of In the Air Tonight, on their recent cd?

haha, I ALMOST said that one.

I could hear the wimpy Toto version of that three chord riff turned into a bludgeoning riff of destruction!

yea but they aren't really metal.

Not a bad remake though, even though I despise Nonpoint.

Not a fan of Lacuna Coil AT ALL, but I like this version of the song.

How about the famous Barney song. There's nothing better than hearing "I love you" to a heavy metal beat.:lol:

I really like 'Comalies' and most of 'Karmacode'...but don't care for their earlier material at all...btw did you ever check out the band Swallow the Sun, if you get the chance listen to the song 'Hold this Woe' and let me know what you think...it's your typical Gloom/Doom but very good nonetheless...

Ones I'd not only like to see, but would love to actually do and record....

Toto ~ Hold The Line (as mentioned before)
Styx ~ Queen of Spades
The Cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show ~ The Time Warp
Billy Joel ~ The Ballad of Billy the Kid
Elton John ~ The B*tch is Back

Just a few.

The hardcore band Throwdown did a pretty nice cover of this song...I'm sure you could find it somewhere on the net. It's on this compilation CD (http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00005AG3G/702-0724047-6376012?v=glance&n=916514)....
