What are your favorite songs that BB covers? Do you have any songs you wish they would cover? I was just listening to Zombie by The Cranberries and I think that would be such an awesome song for them to do. It would be so cool with the heavy guitar they use along with the layered vocals.
I once had a dream where I was at a Breaking Benjamin concert and they played their entire repertoire, but they wanted to keep going after that, so they started playing really random cover songs. Like, stuff by The Offspring and Paramore. Lol.
I love when Breaking Benjamin covers songs. Ben has such a fantastic voice, and they always lend their own flair to the songs while still playing them as truthfully as they can.
Some of my favourite covers are their acoustic All Apologies by Nirvana from when they were promoting WANA; their live You Know You're Right by Nirvana; Who Wants to Live Forever by Queen; Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper; and Stinkfist by Tool (I haven't yet heard their Schism cover, but I imagine it's incredible as well).
Songs I wish they'd cover are basically anything by Crossfade, because I think they'd do an excellent job on those songs; every song they've ever teased live, such as Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2, Bother by Stone Sour, Closure by Chevelle; and... oh wow, I don't even know. Something with a groove to the music, like Rihanna's Only Girl in the World or something. I think they could make an excellent alternative metal version of bascially any pop song. Lol.

Their covers are fantastic. My favorite I've heard in person is Time After Time; that's always been a dream of mine to hear live from them, I didn't I would get to. They played it at their March acoustic shows in PA. They also played Who Wants To Live Forever during that and it was ridiculous. In the best way, of course. I also really love their cover of Prison Sex. They played it on their acoustic tour in October.
The sound quality was stunning at that venue, so it was one of my favorite shows so far.
As for what I'd like to hear, I've always wanted to hear their cover of Enjoy The Silence live. It was one of my favorites from YouTube, and I remember years ago talking with one of my friends on twitter that I met through BB (who is still one of my best friends) about how we'd do anything for a studio version. We were freaking out when we got it on the greatest hits album. If nothing else good came out of that album, that song is a very fond memory. There's also a video of them performing My Own Summer by Deftones with Kevin Matisyn doing guest vocals on it, which is basically my ideal duo and ideal cover. I'd also enjoy hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit live, and just more Tool covers. Their heavier covers like Metallica and Pantera are also kickass.
