Metal's facination with Dance

What's up with metal bands coming up with covers of dance songs for greatest hits albums?

First Korn came out with it's cover of Cameo's "Word Up", which sounds like it will be a huge crossover hit when Top 40 radio gets over the fact that it is Korn. It wouldn't sound out of place at all.

Then Marilyn Manson came out with his cover of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" for his greatest hits album. It also sounds like it could crossover, but much less likely because the image of Marylin Manson is much "worse" than Korn's. Marylin Manson didn't have his songs in Addias commercials after all.

What's next? Metallica covering "You Can't Touch This"? Considering how poor their albums have been recently, it might be a good change.
