Good call on that one, definitely a great cover.

The Beatles of course have done a million great covers.

Van Halen have good covers of You Really Got Me and Oh Pretty Woman.

Cream - Spoonful

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

Shit, that was the only album they put out that I didn't like. It could have been great but it turned out really bad in my opinion.

Wow, really?  They covered classic punk/rock/hip hop songs.  They made them their own, and the paid proper respect.  Rage never put out an album that I didn't like.  What in particular didn't you like?

It just didn't come out right to me, it should have been great but none of the songs seemed to covered very well. They picked good songs to cover, I don't know. Just didn't do it for me.

He did that perfect. I was amazed of how good he made that song sound. Ben Folds is one of the best modern piano players out today.
