The Contenders: Page 17

321 Gringo en Mexico - Maria Muldaur (Wendy Waldman)
322 Street Fighting Man - Rage Against the Machine (Rolling Stones)
323 Come Together - Michael Jackson (The Beatles)

Great Cover, everybody judges this one because of the artist and because people thought he crossed the line by being a good business man instead of beatles fan. Still he is a great beatles fan and nailed this one making it fresh and interesting for the first time it has been covered. He should had left it in Moonwalker though. Putting it on the HIStory album was unnecessary. It doesn't fit the sound of the album at all.

I kinda liked it when the Beatles sang it. But it's a really cool song ya know. Oh and just one more thing my comments are always at the last on the list. Why is that?

This song was an amazing song for Michael. He made an awesome video for this and you just can't take your eyes off him... xo - love4mjj

Michael stays true to the original version yet incorporates his own personal touch. An awesome cover ❤️. - FlakyCuddles43

336 Wanna Be Startin Something - Akon (Michael Jackson)

338 Mrs Robinson - Lemonheads (Simon and Garfunkel)

Why is this song several times in this list?

339 Working Class Hero - Green Day (John Lennon)

Green Day's cover of Working Class Hero has so much more feeling into it than John Lennon's original version of this song. This song made me search for the original. Though the original really disappointed me after hearing this cover of it. Green Day is, and will be an all time best.

I want Knowledge - Green Day (Operation Ivy)... I like Green Day's version more than the original.

A working class hero is something to be

340 Numb - Evanescence (Linkin Park)
