Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 7
Pearl Jam added so much emotion to this song
Great remake of a classic.
3 time better version than original.
More than awesome cover - gallop and double bass sound great! - Metal_Treasure
Wow. This was a cover done by Nilsson of a Badfinger tune. Maria covered a cover of a cover. Nilsson's version was incredible and deserves to be on this list.
Even definitely Leppard thinks her cover is the right one after waiting for years for someone who could make it right...
Who wrote this, their spelling is terrible. This combination of song and voice is amazing.
I think this version is better than the original. Yes, Michael Jackson is known as one of the greats but the original song always lacked punch. It sounded like a rock song that wasn't aloud to rock (even though the guitar solo was incredible) And this cover really lets the guitars rock! And even though Patrick Stump isn't as good a vocalist as Michael Jackson was, he sounds way more invested in the song. And John Mayer still keeps the guitar solo pretty strong. I just love this version.
This bring out the true rock power of the song!
