Thin Lizzy's "Whiskey in the Jar" has been stuck in my head since yesterday morning. And I, somewhat unfortunately, can't think of Thin Lizzy's cover of said Irish romp without thinking of Metallica's. But since "Whiskey in the Jar" has been covered by everybody and his great-grandmother, who do you think did the best version of it...
Or Thin Fuckin' Lizzy?
Of course, they all rule in their own special way (I hold a special place for Metallica's simply because of time and place), but I prefer Thin Lizzy's above all others.
