rocket engines burning fuel so fast
upinto the night sky they blast
through the universe the engines whine
could it be the end of man and time

Ha Ha! Made you look.

Audioslave's acoustic cover of black hole sun

doesn't count because it is one of the worst songs ever and the singer is the same

this space is intentionally blank, other than this note about it being blank.

Joel R Phelps - Guns of Brixton

HOW DARE YOU? lol.

Well, well I been movin' down to Florida.
And I'm gonna bowl me a perfect game.

And I'm gonna dance one-legged off in the rain.

you have heard "we built this city" right?

i agree black hole sun is, by far not the strongest offering from the force that was soundgarden, but NOT the worst song ever.

hehe. Knew that one would pop open a few eyes. I always thought Joel did a good job of making it his own and giving the words new meaning. Probably the hardest thing any musician can do so I gotta give him props.

EDIT:
The easy ones are all by Johnny Cash - Rusty Cage(Soundgarden), Hurt(NIN) and Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode. I like his take on that last one alot and I fucking hate Depeche Mode.

totally not the worst song ever. but brought soundgarden from one of the coolest most kickass bands out there to a footnote pretty damn quick.

i can still remember driving home from working and hearing that on the radio and really wanting to slap chris cornell in the face
