Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Love Song - 311 (The Cure)

For as much of a douche as Nick Hexum is... this song has an amazing groove.

I like both versions, this one like many 311 songs has a good guitar sound. - NuMetalManiak

Great reggae version, but I'm sorry, Nick Hexum is no deuche. - Lemonjelo

142 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - HYDE (The Beatles)

No one else can do a better version of this ever.

143 The Evil That Men Do - After Forever (Iron Maiden)
144 Astronomy - Metallica (Blue Öyster Cult)

Metallica turned it into a diamond from a piece of coal.

145 Careless Whisper - Seether (George Michael)

Seether's version of this song makes it edgy and raw...its like a completely different song. One of the best cover songs of all time. This should be top 5 at least...

This is the song that got me into Seether. It definitely deserves a better spot than this, it needs to be in the top ten at least - Danielsun182

146 When a Blind Man Cries - Metallica (Deep Purple) When a Blind Man Cries - Metallica (Deep Purple)

Best cover song of 2012 done by Metallica

147 My Perogative - Britney Spears (Bobby Brown)

Incredible song. It characterises Britney Spears.

Just WOW! Madonna's voice sounds so great. I like Madonna but I'm not a fan. Anyway, we must give her some credits. Great cover!

Honestly, Madonna's voice is suprisingly strong. Her best vocal work by far! - FlakyCuddles43
