Top 10 Cover Songs Better Than the Original


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner

One of the few performances that actually belongs on this list. I'm not saying many other covers here aren't good, but they do Not surpass the original even if they are more popular or done by artists who have more fans here. - Billyv

42 Cruel Summer - Ace of Base
43 Holy Diver - Killswitch Engage

The only reason this is not in the top ten is because mainstream music listener are more than metal heads. This is definitely a top ten for any metal head.
