    Name That Song

    What 1968 Hard Rock song has been rerecorded by at least 20 other bands and performed live by an additional half dozen or so? This is so easy and yet, maybe not. Clues will follow if you haven't figured it out in a couple of hours.

    Q magazine ranks it in its top 50 guitar tracks of all-time.

    [QUOTE]Hmmm, knee-jerk answer for me would be something from Hendrix, except I can't come up with many covers of his tunes.  Clapton doesn't quite fit either.   Gotta be something by the Beatles or the Stones, and when you say guitar track I'm leaning towards a Stones tune.  Jumpin' Jack Flash?  Lot of covers, not sure about the exact year it came out though.  Need more clues before I'd bet money on my guess.

    Slim,you must be a carpenter,because I think you nailed it with Jumping Jack Flash.

    Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf


    I know there were a few covers of JJF but I think this fits with more,  and it fits the "Heavy Metal Thunder"

    None to all the above, but it started warm. And with each new comment, you seem to move farther away.

    One last clue - it was written as a kind of response to "I Can See For Miles" by the Who.

    Gonna have to go with one of your personal faves then...Helter Skelter?  (If it is I would guess a lot of the bands that covered were heavy metal bands.)

    Good man hfx. Figured someone had to catch on to that considering I started a thread on this song last year. But was cpvered by bands not in the Metal genre:

    Husker Du, U2, Urban Dance Squad, Pat Benetar all released a version of Helter Skelter on live albums.

    i was gonna say that, but i didn't.  so obvious!  i even read that backstory about it being in response to the who in the beatles book i'm reading last night. 

    following a review of the who: "Forget Happy Jack sitting in sand on the Isle of Man, this marathon epic of swearing cymbals and cursing guitars marks the return of the Who as a major freak-out force.  Recorded in America, it's a Pete Townshend composition filled with townshend mystery and menace, and delivered by the emphatic Mr. Roger Daltry."

    Paul says "I thought, 'That's a pity.  I would like to do something like that.'  Then I heard it and it was nothing like it.  It was straight and sophisticated.  So we did this [Helter Skelter].  I like noise."

    I love how that quote ends.  I like noise.  Ain't it the truth?

    I think jkjband's answer 'Born to Be Wild' may also have been correct.  A quick perusal of Wikipedia shows about 20 cover versions.

    Wasn't from 1968, though.   The date was in JE's question.   So, so close, though.  I noticed it when I looked it up.

    Hmmm...looks like it was first recorded in 1967 but first released in 1968.

    Absolutely - if this was not a proto-type of what was to become Metal, then I don't know. it was as heavy as anything Blue Cheer did, IMO.

    The title of this 1966 Bubblegum song, about a girl, sounds like the name of a vegetable.  Name that tune.
