I think the thing with Maiden covers is a lot of bands will do them live or do them when they're starting out but they won't put them down on tape. I dunno.

metal-archives said that Slayer was the most covered band in the world.

Yeah right. I'd bet it's either the Beatles or Bob Dylan. I know that the Beatles' "Yesterday" is the most covered pop song ever.

It's fun to take a trip. Put acid in your veins.

Resurrecting another old thread once again.

I'm casting my vote for Metallica. The number of high school bands that have covered One, Enter Sandman, and Fade to Black are simply overwhelming.

...no one said it had to be "known" bands that do the covers.

Well the OP clearly says "what band is covered for officially released albums the most often?" but carry on.

This also marks the third time (if I recall correctly) that I forget to re-read the post before replying to a thread.

I'm still sticking with Metallica (Mastodon, Bullet for My Valentine, Machine Head, Vader, Anthrax, Disturbed, Korn, Trivium, Sum 41, Primus, and if you want to go there, Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, and Snoop Dogg have all covered them), immediately followed by Pantera (not counting Damageplan or any other number of bands who play "Walk" randomly, because at least three are in here already - Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Sylosis, Unearth, Zakk Wylde, 2Cents, Dream Theater, Butcher Babies, Evile, Chimera, Anal Cunt, Five Finger Donkey Punch, and Madonna, among others). I definitely agree with Iron Maiden and Slayer though.

Overall? It's either The Beatles or Richard Berry (Louie Louie).

AC/DC have got to be up there. Not something I've ever thought about too much though, as I'm not much a fan of recorded covers usually.
