When covering a song, it can go two ways. They can absolutely kill it or they can destroy it.

So what are some of your favourite covers of songs by other artists?

Here are some of mine...

Power of Love - Gabrielle Aplin (Originally by Frankie goes to Hollywood) [link]
Replay - Close to Home (Originally by Iyaz) [link]
Violet Hill - Pendulum (Originally by Coldplay) [link]
Last Friday Night - Woe, Is Me (Originally by Katy Perry) [link]
P.Y.T. - Alex Goot (Originally by Michael Jackson) [link]

Has another band ever captured bitter and funny at the same time so perfectly?

My Generation (Green Day, originally by The Who)
Killboy Powerhead (The Offspring, originally by the Digits)

I can't really think of any more covers I like, there's some more obscure ones like Teenage Bottlerocket's version of Green Day's 'Having a Blast' but usually I find most artists these days find it difficult to produce a quality cover.

I like Tome Jones's cover of Burning Down the House, on his 1999 album featuring the Cardigans. I actually like it better than the original.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Moonsorrow [link]

Originally by Metallica [link]

The only problem I have with the cover is the disappointing lack of the sexy guitar riff in the intro... and the only problem I have with the original is that it ends too quickly! So they both sort of balance each other out.

None. The original is far more preferable. Except for probably Tia Carrere's version of Ballroom Blitz.
