    Ben Folds’ “Bitches Ain’t S**t” is at the top of mine, but damn, love this one.  We need to get a re-cover, where Snoop covers their cover with his own voice in sweet, delicious melody.

    Love the Gourds! Snoop Lion approved, even:

    Didn’t really like this one. My personal favorite is still Jonathan Coulton’s Baby Got Back cover.

    Which reminds me to ask – how many Wicket Men are there on a 43-man Squamish team?

    The Cover of Gin and Juice by The Gourds is the win.    Country…

    How can Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine be ignored in a conversation about old school rap covers?
    Gin and Juice (which I’ll forever think of as a Snoop Dogg cover, not a Snoop Lion cover…)
    Baby Got Back
    Brass Monkey
    Fight for your right

    Also don’t forget that the very talented Cheese doesn’t stop at hip-hop covers.

    Gourds is one of the best I’ve ever heard.  I literally have to hear that play song every few weeks just to get my fix.  They pretty much owned that one.

    I’m actually kind of a connoisseur of strange cross-genre covers generally.  And there’s no denying The Gourds “” cover is indeed pretty hard to top for sheer infectiousness.  But a close second in terms of being unexpectedly and kind of jarringly beautiful is Nina Gordon’s (from Veruca Salt) cover of “Straight Outta Compton”.  This is tha smoove s–t!!!

  11. Vitamin Lounge does some great Eminem covers. Oh, and Grenouilles have a fun Low (Flo Rida) cover.
