Best Cover Songs

Way better than the original, it has angel voice, with... DEVIL SCREAMS! Chester hit the spot to be the Top 1. To those who likes scream and growls, this is a perfect Semi-death metal cover for you! M/
I heard the NIN version and didn't really like it that much, but then I heard the LP version and it was awesome. Linkin Park rules. - lukestheman4
Really the best cover ever. I don't think the NIN version is so good, but Chester and Linkin Park really makes it have that angry, rough tone that NIN couldn't give.
I am surprised at how few people realize that the version of this song they've heard all these years is a cover! Manfred Mann took a decent Bruce Springsteen song and almost completely changed all except the lyrics, and the result was truly something special.
Number 125 on this list?
Are you people all born after 1980?
This was a NUMBER ONE hit before Bruce ever had a number one. - dek
Bruce's version was good by Manfred Mann's Earth band made a great coverV 1 Comment
This is Truly a great song. It deseves to be in the top
I've heard this song 100 times! This is the best cover song all time! They change the bored song to a crazy hard rock song! It deserves to be in the top!
AMAZING! - ryanfarolddanielwenas
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
In this song you can hear exactly why they call Rod Stewart the white man with the black voice.
Rod makes this his own.
Although this song was writen for a female Rod made it male like no one else can.
So heartfelt, so emotional, so wondefully good...
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
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
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!
Although Clapton's version is more popular, I like the funky groove that J.J. Cale imparts to the song.
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!
Should be so much higher, Top 20.
