Post Which pop songs would you like to metal-ify?

I sometimes hear a song on the radio and think: that's just dying to be given a death-metal reinterpretation. For example, The Bangles Walk Like an Egyptian would sound awesome if covered by (because who else?) Nile. I would also enjoy hearing a Cannibal Corpse rendition of My Sharona.
So my question is, which pop song do you think desperately needs covering, and by whom?

I can see how that would work!

Would probably sound something like Stuck Mojo or Biohazard

Post Re: Which pop songs would you like to metal-ify?

On the subject, this song should sound properly "metallified" (or rather rock-y-fied, I guess):


To me it totally sounds like a rock song played with synthesisers, so making rock/metal version of it would be almost like "making it right" (and by "right" meaning "traditional", something like that).

P.S. Actually I already see guitar version in related vids on youtube. Well, that was expected I guess.

Not really pop, but I'd like to hear metal remakes of shoegaze and post-punk songs.

First and foremost, I could see Lethian Dreams doing a good cover of 'Altogether' by Slowdive.
I could also imagine Paradise Lost or Tiamat doing a suitable remake of 'Into the Light' by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Would Biohazard be a reasonable alternative...?

New wave/Post-punk for me - pretty much anything by Blondie could stand for a Deep Purple-style treatment, maybe from one of the contemporary Italian bands like I Compagni di Baal, or Midryasi.

I was hoping for a much heaver version and slow male vocals that have an almost Gothic sound to them.

Yeah, fair enough - I can see how that'd work!

You know, in LC's early days, I totally could have seen them pulling that off. I would like to see Katatonia or Anathema do a cover of The Cure's Lovesong; an unusually upbeat track for such a downer band, remade by heavier downer bands.
