203 Hair Of A Dog - Guns N' Roses (Nazareth)
204 I Love Rock 'n' Roll - Britney Spears (The Arrows)

Britney claims that "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is one of her favoutite songs ever. I think she is right.

205 Somebody Put Something in My Drink - Children Of Bodom (The Ramones)
206 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding (The Rolling Stones)
207 Talk Talk - Alice Cooper (The Music Machine)
208 Cocaine - Eric Clapton (J.J. Cale)

Although Clapton's version is more popular, I like the funky groove that J.J. Cale imparts to the song.

209 Umbrella - Vanilla Sky (Rihanna)
210 Lollipop - Framing Hanley (Lil Wayne)

Simply amazing... never thought Lil Wanye's version could be made better... The best song Framing Hanley's ever done! - JesusOfSuburbia07

How the hell is this song that low I mean it's better then the original needs to be higher - donovanthorn

That was certainly a cover I wasn't expecting. - NuMetalManiak

211 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit (The Who)

For the first time a cover is just as good as the original but in a different style. Both songs are great but I just like the singing solo in the original. Great song anyway.

It actually might be better than the who's version

212 Poker Face - Daughtry (Lady Gaga)

Epic Cover by daughtry, a 100 times better than lady gaga version...

Just the Epic Voice of Chris Daughtry and his acoustic guitar is enough to make a song better than gaga and her music system!

One of the Best Covers of all time... - shouryakhichariya

213 Torn - One Direction (Ednaswap)

Best Cover ever by the best boy band ever

214 Penny Dreadful - Elvenking (Skyclad)
215 Fancy - Reba McEntire (Bobbie Gentry)
216 Crossroads - Cream (Robert Johnson)
217 Boys of Summer - The Ataris (Don Henley)

Don Henley sounds as good as the Ataris when his song's sped up. Love his song.

218 Quinn the Eskimo - Manfred Mann (Bob Dylan)
219 Since I Don't Have You - Guns N Roses (The Skyliners)
220 All By Myself - Celine Dion (Eric Carmen)
