Default Favourite cover of a FF song?

So I've spent the evening reminiscing about festivals and gigs past and rewatched Florence & The Machines Times Like These cover from Glastonbury 2015- I was SO gutted that FF (understandably) pulled out but F&TM really stepped up and that cover gave me goosebumps, tears, the works- and still does. It was magical in a way that only Glastonbury can be.

What are some other good covers?

Well the obvious one would be Prince doing Best of You

But I don't actually like it that much and think the Foos did it way better

I've put a playlist of covers together on 8tracks but to be real, that bluegrass cover album goes pretty hard.

I love Florence's cover - she also did an amazing version of The Chain
