I thought it might be fun to post up videos of one group covering a hit from another group...

I'll start with KOЯN covering Pink Floyd:

You Don't Know Me - Ray Charles (not originally by him as many think)
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley (Rufus Wainwright from Shrek comes in close)
Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader (the opening hook is much catchier in this cover)
