Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 18
This definitely is not the best cover ever but definitely one of the best and hundred times better than the original. And this is the best song by hypnogaja.
This song makes grown men cry! Brendon and Ryan just make the emotion go overboard, and it's just a truly beautiful song.
Lounge Dracula vocals with borderline Hendrixian noises and such make one forget all about the original. Haunted by a skull with long black hair.
This awesome piece of cover from the famous Finnish band poets of the fall is a cover of Chris cornell's version of James Bond Casino Royale. Frankly speaking, Chris was totally eclipsed with Poets' performance!
Can't believe, it's not at least in Top 50. This is what a good cover-version is all about creating something new and different, but still respecting the original. Not just a perfect imitation, or even, just speeding or slowing the tempo down, like so many in this list.
Very cool metal version - Metal_Treasure
What better than having a rock cover of a country song with amazing guitar solos and catchy verses and riffs? Also, very fun to play on guitar. Charlie Daniels and Steve Ouimette, I salute you both!
I actually don't like the u2 version but the things jared leto can do with his voice is spine tingling.
Just pure awesome. Starting slow and them building up the song. Just awesome. It surprises me how good Jello can sing after so long.
It will be a Perfect song if they made a studio version
