I'm fond of the more quirky cover versions, as mentioned this reduces many people to apoplexy, but you can have all sorts of fun with a good off the wall cover version.
John Ottway's version of the House of the Rising Sun is now legendary on the pub rock circuit and the audience participation has reached manic levels. Money by the Flying Lizards is one that I'm fond of and The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain do many covers, but for me it has to be their version of the Dambusters!
Johnnie Allan's version of Chuck Berrie's Promised land, complete with crazy Cajun accordion is hard to beat
Point of order didn't Dandy Nichols write A Message to you Rudy which was then covered by Judge Dread, the Specials and Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
My Favourite however has to be Union Avenues version of The Ace of Spades I'm beginning to lose count of the gullible souls I've convinced that this was really written by Johnny Cash. !

This one's not quite a "cover" in the conventional sense, but musically it's good.

Did someone say quirky? I don't believe DEVO's "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" has been mentioned yet.

And for filing under 'artists covering themselves', the bluegrass version of The Raconteurs "Old Enough" (with a little help from their friends ;-)

Mad World - Gary Jules
^This one for sure, if you hadn't said I would have.^

There are some really good covers in here... the Reggae Pink Floyd is better than I would have imagined. So is Red Neck AC/DC

Okay, here's some additions to the list.

Bangles - Hazy Shade of Winter.



Power Station - Bang a Gong.



Rufus Wainwright - Hallelujah.



Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love.



Marilyn Manson - Sweet Dreams



Marilyn Manson - Personal Jesus.



Some unusual sources for ones that I like...

Bear McCreary - All Along the Watchtower.



Foxes - Don't Stop Me Now.

Ah The Bangles !!!! Quite apart from their music (which I really do like even as a rock fan), was there ever a better looking band. Drop-dead gorgeous.

A few more Led Zeppelin covers by Heart:


Battle of Evermore
The Song Remains the Same
The Rain Song

It seems they have a thing for Zep as there a few versions on Youtube, esp Stairway.

Geordie Expat

I completely agree with your assessment of the Bangles.

However, there's always Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue - Locomtion.



And...

Bananarama - I'm your Venus.
