Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
I normally don�'t like cover versions, but this one is really good! - Daisymorot
A-ha is always so original but the one time they covered, it was also great!
A-ha didn't cover that much songs, but what they covered (all of them songs) is great! Thankyou a-ha for this fantastic music :-)
Felt it was a bad move though to do a cover at the time and felt it led to their initial break up
HOW IS THIS NOT HIGHER? Elvis Presley, the king, only at number 25? This is not right.
Truly... the magic of Kurt Cobain... Best Cover ever! - hereisHorizon
Can't believe this song is way down in this list.. This together with all along the watchtower-Jimi Hendrix are the best cover songs to be ever performed
The best cover of Nirvana and all time, they made it better than David Bowie!
I think this one must be in the principal list

Why is this song way down here? This is by far the best cover of a song. David Draiman did such an excellent job on the vocals and the rest of the guys matched the instrumentals perfectly!
I voted for Hurt by Johnny Cash but I have to say, that it's silly to vote for a cover when it sounds exactly like the original song. Land of Confusion is a great cover. Especially the guitar solo is epic and on the original it was a little bit boring. But both versions were great.
Could not agree more, this is one of my favorite covers, Johnny Cash cover of Hurt is up there too, Disturbed has other good covers too
It's an awesomely EPIC cover, but the genesis version is still better
Mars Bonfire was a fictitious name John Kay made up to try to weasel out of a bad contract with their record company at that time. It didn't work, John Kay wrote Born To Be Wild.. Under the pen name "Mars Bonfire"
Steppenwolf made this song famous! Much better than the original in my opinion. - THEMASTER
Great Song already Trivium just added a youthful energy to itV 1 Comment
This songs has no changes with the old one... This is an awesome creation of avenged sevenfold... They shown us what can they do and how better they are... That's why I just love a7x... And avenged sevenfold for life..
Avenged, in this song gives Paranoid a pimp. No many changes in here and there, but, still pimped
They took an already amazing song and made it that much better this is deffinaetly number one quality. Evanescence really understood the song and were able to take it and add their amazing style too.. AMAZING
Everyone has covered Chuck Berry. But this is one of the most well crafted and a real tribute to Chuck.
Amazing cover should be higher on the list.
I don't know if I would call this a cover
Great song both versions are different buy great
Muse has made this song into an epic - original use of a loud speaker - hidden away at the end of Origin of Symmetry this has become a firm fan favourite and a must=play at live gigs - this has to be higher than number 32
Why is this so low down? Honestly please just go listen to it now it's perfect and Matt's voice is just beautiful
Moving cover version by a legendary rock band

The Kingsmen took an R&B song, stripped it down to its essence, and created the greatest party song of all time.
