Status Quo version

Other cover versions

In 1994, the Slovenian industrial band Laibach recorded a cover version for their war-themed album NATO.

In 2009, Les Enfoirés covered the song under the title "Ici Les Enfoirés", using the same tune, but changing the lyrics to ones in the French language (about the 25th anniversary of the Restos du Coeur, instead of the original topic).[24]

In September 2010, Status Quo released a new version of the song with the Corps of Army Choir through their label Universal/UMC as a special release. All profits from this updated and lyrically changed version will be donated equally to the British Forces Foundation and Help for Heroes charities. This charted at no. 31 in the UK Singles charts upon its release.

In 2012, power metal band Sabaton covered this song as a bonus track for their album Carolus Rex.

The song was also performed by Russian rock band Lubeh (Любэ).[25]
