Honourable mention to Marseilles, it was one of their better covers, and one of the few that they played in the 80's and 2000's (they played it at the last 2014 show).

I absolutely LOOOOVE their cover of Black Leather. Really heavy, good mix of metal and punk. Might be my favorite off of TSI

Not a bad cover that nuerotic outsiders did with steve jones and slash thats on youtube, circa 95.

I’m part of the 5 people who liked BHS. The problem with the live version was they were inconsistent. Sometimes it sounded really solid, and sometimes it just was disastrous. And yeah, probably could’ve been pulled after 2018 or sooner.

I always hated the studio version of KOHD and really only liked the live versions from the club days.

'Whole Lotta Rose' from the Marquee 1987 is spectacularly good, by some considerable mile their greatest cover.

Yes!

I Feel Good and Wichita Lineman were both highlights of the show when I saw them in 2017. Top 5 songs of the night were probably Nightrain, Catcher, Wichita Lineman, I Feel Good, and My Michelle.

 

I never got the hate for Wichita Lineman... the band has almost always sounded good on stripped down acoustic songs, and it's in Axl's natural range and he still sounds really good on it. It made me wish they'd bring back the acoustic sets in the middle of the shows.

I had the exact same feeling about Wichita Lineman. I loved how polished the band sounded. Frank sounded great, loved hearing Fortus with his short solo, and Slash killed the ending/breakdown. I'd love to hear more songs in Axls natural range like that

Best (No Order)

Jumpin Jack Flash (Acoustic) might be my favorite
Knockin On Heavens Door (classic lineup live versions)
Mama Kin
Nice Boys
Whole Lotta Rosie (Marquee)
Down On The Farm
Ain't It Fun
Look at Your Game Girl

Salt Of The Earth and Free Falling are amazing but they aren't really covers. It is just a member or two guesting with the actual bands. 

Worst
NITL KOHD
Black Hole Sun
Wish You Were Here
Sympathy For The Devil

I’ve always maintained that some of Axls best vocals ever are on TSI. Human Being is a perfect example.... if only they’d released an album of originals around 94-96. No doubt in my mind it could have outdone AFD

Damn so true! Tsi and sympathy for the devil vocal is beyond amazing. If only they could work with some of the snakepit tunes.
