81Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson (Gloria Jones)
82My Mind is Ramblin' - The Black Keys (Junior Kimbrough)
83House of the Rising Sun - Five Finger Death Punch (Clarence Ashley)V1 Comment
84Oops...I Did It Again - Children Of Bodom (Britney Spears)

Best cover ever because it turned one of the worst songs ever made into something decent, well-composed and not just pop crap.

Yupp... that's called a 'cover' - hereisHorizon

85I Heard It Through The Grapevine - Marvin Gaye (Gladys Knight)

This cover is so great that we almost forgot the original song.

This has got to be the greatest original and cover song of time. Both #1 hits.

86You're No Good - Linda Ronstadt (Betty Everett)
87War Pigs - Faith No More (Black Sabbath)

I still prefer the original but this is brilliant. - LedSabbath

No doubt best version of War Pigs - UFasten8Me

88Word Up! - Korn (Cameo)

Great song, Another brick in the wall is a great song by Korn. Best Pink Floyd Cover ever

89Free Bird - Juliet Simms (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
90How I Could Just Kill a Man - Rage Against the Machine (Cypress Hill)
91Hey Jude - Wilson Pickett (The Beatles)
92Thor - Therion (Manowar)
93TNT - Six Feet Under (AC/DC)
94The Sound of Silence - Disturbed

This is such a great version of a classic song. Paul Simon openly stated how much he likes the song. Draiman's singing is perfect. They didn't make this song super metal, their is violin, piano, acoustic guitar and Draiman's singing. Truly a great song

95It's My Life - No Doubt (Talk Talk)
96America - Yes (Simon & Garfunkel)

Shows what brilliant musicians Yes were and are.

97Stay - 30 Seconds to Mars (Rihanna)
98Where Did You Sleep, Last Night? - Nirvana (Leadbelly/Appalachian folk song)

One of my favourite songs in the MTV Unplugged performance (hard fight though), Kurt voice just give me shivers every time I listen to this song.

This deserves top 5
What kind of people visit this page anyway?
Seriously? I'm sure a lot of votes will change once people actually hear this

This is without a shadow of doubt the best cover song I have ever heard. When Kurt screams those final lyrics I get cold shivers and even a bit emotional to think what couldve been if Kurt never shot himself - Danielsun182

omg, i get shivers from just hearing the last lines he sings - odin666
