Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
When I first heard this song it blew my mind and I wondered, "How the hell did I even not hear this version before? " This remake is sick beyond belief (in a great way)! FFDP did the song great justice and Bad Company would be PROUD at this version! It needs to be WAY higher on the list.
I feel like the cover is better than the original, easily one of my favorite songs
Horrible cover, no contest to the originalV 2 Comments
The Song That badly needed a cover to be good.
Sorry but how the hell is Michael Jacksons Come Together on the list.
In fact I believe that Aerosmith did the song better than Michael Jackson but not better then The Beatles.
Also Ooops!... I Did It again is a pop song not a rock song before infact Children of Bodom ruined the song.
Even though I don't mind Stevie Wonders Version too but Red Hot Chili Peppers made it their own song.
Also I should add that it is one of Red Hot Chili Peppers best songs too
My childhood was this song. I can't believe it was a cover all along. Whatever it's still amazing
One of the best bass lines to ever start a red hot chili peppers song. Ever. New album this august vote for this song if your sikedV 1 Comment
Although Clapton's version is more popular, I like the funky groove that J.J. Cale imparts to the song.
It's Ronnie James Dio on vocals and Yngwie Malmsteen on guitars. - Metal_Treasure
Wow this is amazing - christangrant
Iconic song, great cover! - Metal_Treasure
If you've seen this video of the live performance, then you know it should be #1!
One of the best covers of what may be the greatest R & R songs ever!
She takes one of Aerosmith's most popular song, makes it her own (without making it something totally different) and does the impossible: makes it better than the first.
listen to her R2K album and you'll see what I mean.
The album was back in 2000 yet she can still sing the song in the exact same tune. - reigne27
Should be so much higher, Top 20.
mcr are pro. the used arent my style but this is an awesome song - mattbellamyisagod1234
normally I don't like cover songs that much and I always like the original song better. but HIM's wicked game is the only covered version of a song which is better than the original.. so in my opinion HIM has to be the number one!
This was better than Avenged Sevenfold version - Gh_player
3 strike has a much better cover of this song
Should be top 10
Beatiful Song And A Tribute To The Fathers of Real Metal
This should be number one! RIP Dimebag - louistheguitargod
A Cover Masterpiece... New arrangement and grunge effect... Must be the number one cover song ever! You must listen it! Trust me!
I'd say #1, too. Chris Cornell changed the music genre and created a new masterpiece. I like his version better. - Metal_Treasure
