These days the covers in live show rotation are “Let’s Dance” by the Ramones. “Search & Destroy” by Iggy & the Stooges. “I Ran” by Flock of Seagulls and/or “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult. Oh and Rob does a cover of “Just What I Needed” by the Cars.
Haven’t heard the Passenger enough. I think I’d have to abstain from covering Beck though. I get enough comparisons as it is.
What my dad thought, was the Enter Sandman would make a great Depeche Mode song. I’m sure that if you did that, you would recieve a ton of hate-mail. Not that I’d think that you have very many Metallica fans.
