I'm usually cynical about covers, but there are some good ones out there.

Swans - Love Will Tear Us Apart

Afterhours - Shadowplay

Squarepusher - LWTUA

John Frusciante - New Dawn Fades (live)
Darkman

Marcio Cirne - "Atmosphere"


Human Drama - "Decades"

Squarepusher's LWTUA is just gorgeous, but my favourite is this - June tabor and Oysterband - LWTUA recast as a dark folk ballad.  Utterly beautiful.

Also this - although I have heard AMC doing a much better full band version...still, if IC had been from America, it's not a massive leap to think he might have been Mark Eitzel...

Neurosis know where it's at:

Side story: I saw Neurosis play at the Maryland Deathfest last May in Baltimore.As I was walking back to the hotel after their set,I ran into Dave Edwardson,the bassist for Neurosis,at an intersection.Introduced myself to him and we talked for a good 5 minutes about Day of the Lords and our mutual love for the JD's,haha.He said the band had a hard time deciding what song to cover,and they almost did New Dawn Fades.He's also in a Joy Division cover band that he plays with occasionally in the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives.And his 2 favourite bassists are Hooky and Entwistle.

Nouvelle Vague plays a beautiful cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart.

 

Stanton Mirandas version of Love Will Tear Us Apart was quite good.

 

The Killers version of Shadowplay is pretty smart.

I like how Peter Hook is sat in the crowd grinning as he watches them play.

Some good shouts. Low's version of Transmission is quality.

^ Lmfao...

 

 

This is subjective, but some of these covers are so dreadful. But the Rory Gallagher cover DMXI shared is pure magic.....

Hi this is probably the wrong place to post this but could you guys check out my bands cover of ceremony. Theres no vocals in it because the only person who could sing the vocals was IC. Thank you for giving it a listen if you did!

Minchella you guys did a great job with the cover. I like the fact that you guys played it very true to the original. And you came to the right place. I understand where your coming from with the vocals...it's tough to hear other people try and sing Ian's songs. Keep up the good work.
