What is the best cover of a David Bowie song?

I know the Nirvana unplugged song is probably the best known, ( and I just heard John Cougar's version which is pretty good too), but any that come to mind. I know there there are few tribute albums that came out over the years.

Update:

I was going to post the cover of The Man Who Sold The world song done by Johnny Cougar, but I found this video of 7 different versions of the song.

    There are no good covers of David Bowie songs because there are no good David Bowie songs.

      Thanks, I have never heard this cover before. It is very good and the piano sounds very much like the original.
