Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Louie Louie - The Kingsmen (Richard Berry)

The Kingsmen took an R&B song, stripped it down to its essence, and created the greatest party song of all time.

Louie Louie has to be for sure in the top 10. - sUx2Bu

42Wicked Game - HIM (Chris Isaak)

normally I don't like cover songs that much and I always like the original song better. but HIM's wicked game is the only covered version of a song which is better than the original.. so in my opinion HIM has to be the number one!

43Cinnamon Girl - Type O Negative (Neil Young)
44Walk - Avenged Sevenfold (Pantera)

Matt is the only vocalist of a new metal/rock band that still has gritty vocal of the 80's heavy metal

A7x did the best cover song... did you ever listen to Walk...? this should be in the top 5... - skt

13th? are you kidding me?! should be in the top 5 at least! A7X did a great job here!

This is an epic cover

45Bad Company - Five Finger Death Punch (Bad Company)

When I first heard this song it blew my mind and I wondered, "How the hell did I even not hear this version before? " This remake is sick beyond belief (in a great way)! FFDP did the song great justice and Bad Company would be PROUD at this version! It needs to be WAY higher on the list.

I feel like the cover is better than the original, easily one of my favorite songs

One of the best cover songs I have ever heard. Good classic rock song originally, FFDP turned into a hard hitting kick ass war anthem - Nightlock

46I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Regine Velasquez (Aerosmith)

She takes one of Aerosmith's most popular song, makes it her own (without making it something totally different) and does the impossible: makes it better than the first.

listen to her R2K album and you'll see what I mean.

The album was back in 2000 yet she can still sing the song in the exact same tune. - reigne27

47Go West - Pet Shop Boys (Village People)
48I Will Survive - Cake (Gloria Gaynor)
49Under Pressure- My Chemical Romance & The Used (Queen)

mcr are pro. the used arent my style but this is an awesome song - mattbellamyisagod1234

50The Ghost of Tom Joad - Rage Against the Machine (Bruce Springsteen)
51Higher Ground - Red Hot Chili Peppers (Stevie Wonder)

The Song That badly needed a cover to be good.

Sorry but how the hell is Michael Jacksons Come Together on the list.

In fact I believe that Aerosmith did the song better than Michael Jackson but not better then The Beatles.

Also Ooops!... I Did It again is a pop song not a rock song before infact Children of Bodom ruined the song.

Even though I don't mind Stevie Wonders Version too but Red Hot Chili Peppers made it their own song.

Also I should add that it is one of Red Hot Chili Peppers best songs too

My childhood was this song. I can't believe it was a cover all along. Whatever it's still amazing

One of the best bass lines to ever start a red hot chili peppers song. Ever. New album this august vote for this song if your siked
