Your Mama Don't Dance . . .

A number of hard-rock and metal acts have covered tunes from the '60s and '70s -- the era of music that's usually referred to as oldies. Below is a partial list of some instances of this. I've tried to avoid the more obvious ones like Poison's rendition of Loggins & Messina's "Your Mama Don't Dance" and Tesla's version of the Five Man Electrical Band's "Signs."

  • Megadeth's "These Boots" (originally recorded by Nancy Sinatra under the title "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'")
  • House of Lord's "Can't Find My Way Home" (originally recorded by Blind Faith)
  • Sanctuary's "White Rabbit" (originally recorded by Jefferson Airplane)

This looks great, Theo! I especially enjoyed your "enabler" theory and your memories of Vinny!
