Best version of Whiskey in the Jar


Grateful Dead, Thin Lizzy, or Metallica?

I'm going with Grateful Dead. Their mellowness seems to fit the song the best.

While not it's "purest" by a great margin - I LOVE the Metallica version. Rockin' tune.

I love The Deads version. There is only one I know of. They had never practiced it. One day at rehearsals Jerry just started singing and everyone joined around him. Really cool moment

Pretty sure the 'Dead version is actually from one of Garcia's solo projects, but I could be mistaken. My favorite version, though.
