    Pick three of them.

    Of course, Maiden songs covered from 1993 to 1999 don't count. Most of these covers can be found on YouTube. Feel free to mention those I have forgotten.

    My choice right now (in no particular order):
    "Delilah" - "Wishing Well" - "Burn"

    EDIT Addition:
    "Travelling in Style" (Free) "Elected" (Alice Cooper; there are actually two versions, one with Rowan Atkinson and one without him) and "Freude Schoner Gotterfunken" which seems to be an a capella version of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" with possibly coarse lyrics (I don't understand German).

    Severian Have a good time, all the time!

    I can't believe Bruce would work with a Punk band given how much he seems to hate it almost as much as Steve

    Friends/ idols of his son Austin maybe?

    Does he actually hate punk or was it just the target of one of his rants (which I often take as tongue-in-cheek anyway)?

    The lyrics are not coarse; it's the original lyrics used by Beethoven.

    they opened for Maiden on the Dance of Death tour

    Ranko I'll shoot the gunner first!

    There's also "Beast in the Light" with Tribuzy live. Although that's not a cover, it's just a live version of the song with the original artist. And Bruce in a very "metal" outfit. :p



    Here's Tears of the Dragon from the same live video, just for the sake of completeness.



    By the way, who is this Tribuzy guy? He only released a single album and a live video after that, and nothing more. And yet, he has Bruce and Roy Z live...
