Honestly the Bowie version wasnt that good. But "The Man Who Sold The World" cover by Nirvana was AMAZING. It was only recorded live, but that is still great. If only this had been recorded in studio, then we would have an even better cover than what it already is!
Jackie crawled inside this song and delivered it impeccably! It got a huge amount of hits on You Tube. Sorry I'm not sure of the exact number and don't want to post an error.
Each time I hear (or watch) Jackie perform this I am more impressed by how well she delivers this song. - BobG

Jackie's version of this was beautiful, as was the setting where she performed it.

In no way can any cover be better than the Simon & Garfunkel original! - higgsboson2142V3 Comments
Everything this band does is better than the original.
I respect bands that take songs completely outside of their genre and make it work. This is one of the few times that's happened, and I like it. Seriously, I had no idea I wanted a metal cover of Michael Jackson until I heard this.
