    a current "popular" band to release a VH cover song - what would it be and by who?

    I think Velvet Revolver would do an awesome cover of Every Body Wants Some!

    I don't think there's a "popular" band out there today that could really do justice to VH...but let me think about it.

    The Donnas would do a prety good version of unchained Imo

    Godsmack "Unchained"

    Creed (when they were together) "Mean Street"

    AC/DC "Loss of Control"

    Metallica "I'm the One" or "House of Pain" (yeah, like that would happen).

    Aerosmith "Not Enough"

    N*SYNC "Eruption"

    How about my band doing "D.O.A./Down in Flames?" Only reason why I mention this is because the idea hit me just last night.

    Other than that, I'd go for Tool or A Perfect Circle doing "Atomic Punk." That would be so badass.

    Metallica doing Romeo Delight would be cool. Well as long as Kirk Hammet forgets to bring his wah wah.

    I would rather hear Los Lonely Boys cover VH, than hear Audioslave butcher and destroy a great VH tune!

    Wrong...

    The overall way the song flows would be perfect for the "Boys".

    Beside the fact that it is not exactly a difficult song to play.

    Chords alone, it still sounds good.
    Then add the vocal.

    I agree. Henry could pull it off without a hitch. The guy is a great guitar player.
