Cover Me Do

Without checking any stats, I think it's safe to assume that The Beatles are the most frequently covered band in music history.  And a cursory search of YouTube pretty much confirms this much.  However, my search yielded some very interesting clips.  The Weight wants to know which of these do you think is the most original (cheap attempt at boosting reader participation):

Jack White performing "Mother Nature's Son"

Franz Ferdinand performing "It Won't Be Long"

Soundgarden performing "Come Together"

Stereophonics and Oasis performing "I'm Only Sleeping"

Booker T. & The MGs performing an Abbey Road Medley

Nirvana performing "I Feel Fine" (sort of)

Elvis Presley performing "Yesterday" (brilliant)

And last but not least...a very tired and jaded Beatles covering themselves (this footage is unreal -- make sure to watch entire clip)

There are countless others -- if you find some good ones, let us know.
