Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Paranoid - Megadeth ( Black Sabbath)

This was better than Avenged Sevenfold version - Gh_player

62Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zeppelin (Joan Baez)
63Smile - Michael Jackson (Charlie Chaplin)
64Hallowed Be Thy Name - Machine Head (Iron Maiden)
65Going Blind - The Melvins (Kiss)
66Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band (Bruce Springsteen)

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 cover

67Come Together - Aerosmith (The Beatles)
68Another Brick in the Wall - Korn (Pink Floyd)

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

69Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley (Carl Perkins)

Actually, having heard Uriah Heep cover this there can't be any better version for me.

70Billie Jean - Chris Cornell (Michael Jackson)

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

71Come On Feel the Noise - Quiet Riot (Slade)

Amazing cover should be higher on the list.

I don't know if I would call this a cover

72The Green Fields of France - Dropkick Murphys (Eric Bogle)
73Love the One You're With - Stephen Stills (The Isley Brothers)
74Godzilla - Fu Manchu (Blue Oyster Cult)
75Over the Hills and Far Away - Nightwish (Gary Moore)

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.

76Beyond the Realms of Death - Blind Guardian (Judas Priest)

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

77American Woman - Lenny Kravitz (Guess Who)
78The Trial - Dark Funeral (King Diamond)
79Bring the Pain - Mindless Self Indulgence
80Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson (Gloria Jones)
