203 Wish You Were Here - Grateful Dead (Pink Floyd)

the original is amazing but grateful dead's guitar work on this song is really great - ravikanth

204 I Fought The Law - The Clash (Sonny Curtis and The Crickets)

Can never decide which one I prefer, this or the Dead Kennedys' version. Both great!

205 Wild is the Wind - Cat Power (Nina Simone)
206 Without You - Harry Nilsson (Badfinger)

A great song and a *huge* improvement on the original.

207 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright (Leonard Cohen)

Truly the greatest cover of this masterpiece.

208 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin)
209 Sympathy for the Devil - Gun's N Roses (The Rolling Stones)

MOTORHEAD version is much better.

210 Hair Of A Dog - Guns N' Roses (Nazareth)
211 I Love Rock 'n' Roll - Britney Spears (The Arrows)

Britney claims that "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is one of her favoutite songs ever. I think she is right.

212 Somebody Put Something in My Drink - Children Of Bodom (The Ramones)
213 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding (The Rolling Stones)
214 Talk Talk - Alice Cooper (The Music Machine)
215 Cocaine - Eric Clapton (J.J. Cale)

Although Clapton's version is more popular, I like the funky groove that J.J. Cale imparts to the song.

216 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Aretha Franklin (Simon & Garfunkel)

No way this could ever come anywhere near Simon & Garfunkel's rendering. It was written by Paul Simon for goodness sake!

217 Umbrella - Vanilla Sky (Rihanna)
218 Snowblind - System of a Down (Black Sabbath)

Amazing cover. - FlaMeThrOwer9

219 Lollipop - Framing Hanley (Lil Wayne)

Simply amazing... never thought Lil Wanye's version could be made better... The best song Framing Hanley's ever done! - JesusOfSuburbia07

How the hell is this song that low I mean it's better then the original needs to be higher - donovanthorn

That was certainly a cover I wasn't expecting. - NuMetalManiak

220 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit (The Who)

For the first time a cover is just as good as the original but in a different style. Both songs are great but I just like the singing solo in the original. Great song anyway.

It actually might be better than the who's version
