The Top Ten

1 All Along the Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The guitar solo was very good. Especially at the ending. - zxm

Obviously better. Nothing masters Hendrix. - jack2244

2 Cum on Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot

How did I forget this - christangrant

3 Whiskey in the Jar - Metallica

This is a bit complicated. Metallica did a cover of Thin Lizzy but it's not the original - it was also a cover, a rock cover of a folk song. The original is an Irish folk song. - Metal_Treasure

4 Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses

A lot better than the original, and probably my 2nd favorite Guns N' Roses song. They did a very good job with the cover. - Element119

I definitely agree - much much better than the original. Maybe this should be at #1 on this list. - Metal_Treasure

Disagree. Bob Dylan was much better than this trash. - jack2244

5 Symphony of Destruction - Paul Di'ano & Jeriko
6 Land of Confusion - Disturbed

I like this a lot better than the Genesis version - christangrant

7 Got the Time - Anthrax
8 Am I Evil - Metallica
9 Bad Company - Five Finger Death Punch

I like this verson of Bad Company better than the original - christangrant

? Why Can't We Be Friends - Smash Mouth

The Contenders

11 The Wizard - Blind Guardian
12 Antisocial - Anthrax
13 The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
