The Cover Songs

The following is a list (possibly incomplete) of cover songs that Widespread Panic plays or has played in the past, with, where applicable, a listing of recorded versions of the song in question. I hope that everyone will find this to be a useful resource in exploring the roots of Widespread Panic. I will try to be more complete as time progresses...
