One could argue that White Lion had bigger hits than "Radar Love", for instance "Wait", "Little Fighter" and "When the Children Cry"

I never knew "Once Bitten Twice Shy" was a cover, I love that song.

Limp Bizkit - "Behind Blue Eyes"

Presidents of the united states of america - "Video Killed the Radio Star"

Alien Ant Farm - "Smooth Criminal"

"Biggest" hit is questionable but,

 

Tesla's Little Suzy.

 

Judas Priests Green Manalishi

Well, I should have put "most popular song" or "song they are known most for".

This is an Australian one hit wonder band from 1987 and that one hit was a cover. I had the 45 of this single and can distinctly remember watching this clip on MTV and buying it. I'm sure the Aussie and British members will recognize the girl in the video. She was in her prime back then. Still on Aussie TV today.

Marilyn Manson - "Personal Jesus", "Tainted Love", "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"

The "Soft Cell" version of "Tainted Love" is also a cover and their biggest hit.

I don't know if these guys had any bigger hits, I don't think they did. Wasn't really a fan. I am however, a big fan of "The Doors". 

"The Lost Boys" soundtrack strikes again!

I love Priest's version of Green Manalishi. The original by Fleetwood Mac is also great and Victory do a great version as well. I don't think it's Priest's biggest or most well known hit though.
