    Default best club days cover versions?

    VH did tons of covers pre first album, which they never seemed to do again once they got big. most of them kicked ass, anyone got any particular faves?

    top 3 for me would be

    Bad Company - Live For The Music




    Aerosmith - Last Child

    [Cannot find on youtube]


    the one I like best is Cactus's I Wanna Swim In Your Ocean. rocktastic even though it's mainly used to frame al's drum solo

    no doubt, they covered beer drinkers and hellraisers and 'tush' too. (maybe others?)

    Good call. It also obviously inspired this one ...

    Hots on for Nowhere

    Strange choice for a Zep song but considering they covered it in 76' it was probably on the radio at the time.

    I have a boot where they're playing this with Sammy, 1988, just before going into Zep's Rock and roll.
