Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 19XW

361Orgasmatron - Sepultura (Motörhead)
362Legs - Nickelback (ZZ Top)
363New Dawn Fades - Moby and New Order (Joy Division)
364Mustang Sally - The Commitments (Wilson Pickett)

Love the Commitments version, gutsier great instrumentation.

365Billie Jean - The Civil Wars (Michael Jackson)

Love MJ's version, but the Civil Wars make it a whole new sound.

366The Great Pretender - Freddie Mercury (The Platters)

Absolutely brilliant cover by the best singer in the world and sounds much more better than the platters version.

367The Seeker - Rush (The Who)
368I Know There's Something Going On - Common Fates (Frida)
369Unchained Melody - Harrison Craig (Righteous Brothers)

Harrison is 18 years old and to be able to sing this song way better than the original is just amazing, plus the fact that he has a stutter is incredible. He won the voice australia 2013 and I can definitely see why, Seal did a fantastic job on coaching him!

The version on the film Ghost (played by The Drifters? ) is the best for me

370Toxic - Local H (Britney Spears)

1000% better than the original.

Oh baby can't you see

371Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow (Guns N Roses)

I know that there's a head better songs in the list than this but this cover song is also nice and pretty cool... Good job Sheryl Crow

372R.A.M.O.N.E.S. - The Ramones (Motörhead)

Motörhead wrote a tribute song for The Ramones, which they later covered.

373Have You Ever Seen the Rain? - The Ramones (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
374Surfin' Bird - The Ramones (The Trashmen)
375California Sun - The Ramones (The Rivieras)

Should be a lot higher on the list!

376Little Bit O' Soul - The Ramones (Music Explosion)
377Disintegration/Free Money - Slayer (Verbal Abuse)
378Ordinary World - Red (Duran Duran)

Absolutely love Michael's voice

379Violent Pacification - Slayer (D.R.I.)
380Abolish Government / Superficial Love - Slayer (T.S.O.L.)
