Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 15

281 Right Now - Death Harmonic (Korn)
282 Heart Full of Pride - Gimp Fist (Perkele)

Better than the original!

283 Sympathy for the Devil - Sandie Shaw (Rolling Stones)

One of the most covered songs ever, sadly this version is very little known, considering it's pretty good. Shaw's backing group is quite awesome.

284 Shadowplay - The Killers (Joy Division)
285 Sympathy for the Devil - Laibach (The Rolling Stones)
286 Running Up That Hill - Placebo (Kate Bush)
287 Royals - Bruce Springsteen (Lorde)
288 Footloose - Blake Shelton (Kenny Loggins)
289 Girlfriend - Zebrahead (Avril Lavigne)
290 Alone - Adam Gontier (Heart)

In my opinion, the original is okay, but this is definitely one of my favourite cover songs! (Even though I have a lot)

291 Hope - Sublime (Descendents)
292 ... Baby One More Time - Ahmet & Dweezil Zappa (Britney Spears)

Britney underwent the Zappa treatment, and the result is much better than the original! - Lotuscandy

293 Landslide - Smashing Pumpkins (Fleetwood Mac) Landslide - Smashing Pumpkins (Fleetwood Mac) V 1 Comment
294 Take on Me - Ninja Sex Party (A-Ha)
295 Out of the Woods - For King & Country (Taylor Swift)

Yeah they did a cover of this and it's great! - LarkwingFlight
