Japanese Covers of popular English songs

I kinda like the cover of Green Day's "Basket Case" redone by Puffy AmiYumi.

Does anyone know of other popular songs in English-speaking countries redone by J-rock or J-pop bands (in English or Japanese)?

The first thing that comes to mind is Hard Gay's cover of Y.M.C.A.

Chihiro Onitsuka once covered Smells Like Teen Spirit and Hikaru Utada has done a few like Take On Me.

Ummm...Utada Hikaru actually sang Take On Me in English, so it doesn't count xD.

Len Park did a Japanese version of You Raise Me Up (Romeo x Juliet OP/ED/Insert).
