Unrecognizable Cover Versions

Was listening to the Johnny Thunders version of Marc Bolans' "The Wizard"(bonus track on the 'So Alone' CD) which is really just the coda to "Ride A White Swan" with Johnny mumbling "he was a wizard and he was my friend" over and over-nothing like the original at all! Nikki Sudden is also notorious for this-his versions of Neil Young's "Captain Kennedy" and Bolan's "Cat Black" bear scant resemblance to the originals. What are some of your favourite reinterpretations/re-jiggings/manglings?
