421 Substitute - The Ramones (The Who)
422 Louie Louie - The Stooges (Richard Berry)
423 I Wanna Be Your Man - The Stooges (The Beatles)
424 Wendy - Descendents (The Beach Boys)
425 Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie - Pennywise (Black Flag)
426 Minor Threat - Pennywise (Minor Threat)
427 It's Electric - Metallica (Diamond Head)
428 Let's Get It On - Jack Black (Marvin Gaye)
429 Third Uncle - Bauhaus (Brian Eno)

Very powerful space-punk-rock cover of Brian Eno's song. And one of my favorite Bauhaus song

430 I Want to Know What Love Is - Mariah Carey (Foreigner)
431 Voodoo Child - Stevie Ray Vaughan (Jimi Hendrix)

This should be a given. Defines a great cover.

432 Rock You Like a Hurricane - The Veronicas (Scorpions)
433 Pass the Dutchie - FM (Musical Youth)
434 La Isla Bonita - Alizee (Madonna)

This cover song of alizee is the best cover ever made. Her version is million times better than Madonna's one and I don't think Madonna or anyone could imitate this song even closely to alizee. Her version takes you to a certain new level what Madonna didn't had.

One of the stupidest comments I've read! Madonna's version is UNBEATABLE! She blows any other cover version!

435 Ring of Fire - Eric Burdon (Johnny Cash)
436 Breaking the law - Motörhead (Judas Priest)
437 Different Drum = Sussanah Hoffs (Linda Ronstadt)
438 What Is Life = Shawn Mullins (George Harrison)
439 Working Class Hero = Marianne Faithfull (John Lennon)
440 It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels - Status Quo (Kitty Wells)
