This was better than Avenged Sevenfold version - Gh_player
I am surprised at how few people realize that the version of this song they've heard all these years is a cover! Manfred Mann took a decent Bruce Springsteen song and almost completely changed all except the lyrics, and the result was truly something special.
Number 125 on this list?
Are you people all born after 1980?
This was a NUMBER ONE hit before Bruce ever had a number one. - dek
Bruce's version was good by Manfred Mann's Earth band made a great coverV1 Comment
Jonathan Davis' vocals work great for this song. And a great guitar solo by Munky. Much better than the original, and that's saying a lot - Shake_n_Bake13
Bull, pink floyd is way better than korn, another brick in the wall was a masterpiece
This song sounds better then the original, great job Korn -
I was looking for this song on here
Actually, having heard Uriah Heep cover this there can't be any better version for me.
A Cover Masterpiece... New arrangement and grunge effect... Must be the number one cover song ever! You must listen it! Trust me!
I'd say #1, too. Chris Cornell changed the music genre and created a new masterpiece. I like his version better. - Metal_Treasure
Amazing cover should be higher on the list.
I don't know if I would call this a cover
Not a lot has been changed in orchestration, none at all in lyrics, but the voice of Tarja has taken a great song to a new level.
One of those covers that would impress everybody - this iconic Judas Priest song is VERY difficult and emotional, and it needs a great singer, who is also able to feel the emotion of the original.
This singer sang his head off and his chorus is incredible ��" maybe he even succeeded to add some more passion and emotional power. - Metal_Treasure
