    I like this version of Black Sabbath's Fairies Wear Boots by miRthkon that's on their new album and they played at RIO

    From one of Les Claypool's side projects, the Fearless Flying Frog Brigade. Live Frogs Set 2 is a performance of the entire Animals album.

    I think anything from Claypool/Primus qualifies as unusual, and they've done lots of off-the-wall covers. Primus has covered everyone from Peter Gabriel to the Residents to Metallica. Live Frogs Set 1 includes "Thela Hun Ginjeet" and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond."

    Thanks for the Oak Ridge Boys cover I really dug it. Here are a couple of my favorite Sabbath covers. I have this entire rare CD and it is amazing.

    Michael Hedges had great unusual cover songs that were usually re inventions of the originals such as:

    All along the watchtower - Hendrix version
    Emminance front - The Who
    Buffalo Stance - Neena Cherry
    She drives me crazy - Fine young Cannabals
    Like a rolling stone - Dylan
    Lucky star - Madonna
    I don't live today - Hendrix
    Gimmie shelter - The Stones
    and freebird as read by spock to captain kirk (really)

    all on acoustic guitar and voice, simply amazing.

    This was almost the greatest thing in history but it was marred by their failure to include "Oh Lord Yeah!"

    I think the "most unusual" in the thread title is redundant and/or unnecessary. As many of these covers are not that unusual at all. And a cover should really be that band's interpretation of the song so will be unsusual when comparing it to the orignal version anyway.
