I was trying to think of a Depeche Mode cover that improved the Depeche version. There aren't any. Gravity Kills do a decent Personal Jesus
, Rammstein do a cool Stripped
, Deftones do a meaty To Have and to Hold
and In Flames heavily brutalise Everything Counts
, but no one beats the Mode it seems.
Marilyn Manson and Lacuna Coil, of course, ruined their songs.
