The Contenders: Page 20

381 Out in the Fields - Sonata Arctica (Gary Moore)
382 Breaking the Law - Firewind (Judas Priest)
383 The Hellion/Electric Eye - Helloween (Judas Priest)
384 Flash of the Blade - Avenged Sevenfold (Iron Maiden)
385 Plateau - Nirvana (Meat Puppets)
386 Iris - Sleeping With Sirens (Goo Goo Dolls)
387 Paparazzi - Lady Gaga (Greyson Chance)
388 Year 3000 - Jonas Brothers (Busted)

I love this song especially the jonas brothers version because they are my favourite band and they sing perfect. Don't get me wrong. I am not saying that busted is not good. I am just saying that I like the jonas brothers version better.

389 Who Wants to Live Forever - Benjamin Burnley (Queen)

It gave a flair to an already amazing song by queen, Benjamin's amazing voice made the song amazing!

390 Everytime We Touch - Cascada (Maggie Reilly)
391 Orgasmatron - Sepultura (Motörhead)
392 Legs - Nickelback (ZZ Top)
393 New Dawn Fades - Moby and New Order (Joy Division)
394 Mustang Sally - The Commitments (Wilson Pickett)

Love the Commitments version, gutsier great instrumentation.

395 Billie Jean - The Civil Wars (Michael Jackson)

Love MJ's version, but the Civil Wars make it a whole new sound.

396 I Know There's Something Going On - Common Fates (Frida)
397 Unchained Melody - Harrison Craig (Righteous Brothers)

Harrison is 18 years old and to be able to sing this song way better than the original is just amazing, plus the fact that he has a stutter is incredible. He won the voice australia 2013 and I can definitely see why, Seal did a fantastic job on coaching him!

The version on the film Ghost (played by The Drifters? ) is the best for me

398 Toxic - Local H (Britney Spears)

1000% better than the original.

Oh baby can't you see

399 Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow (Guns N Roses)

I know that there's a head better songs in the list than this but this cover song is also nice and pretty cool... Good job Sheryl Crow

400 R.A.M.O.N.E.S. - The Ramones (Motörhead)

Motörhead wrote a tribute song for The Ramones, which they later covered.
