Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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
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!
mcr are pro. the used arent my style but this is an awesome song - mattbellamyisagod1234
Matt is the only vocalist of a new metal/rock band that still has gritty vocal of the 80's heavy metal
A7x did the best cover song... did you ever listen to Walk...? this should be in the top 5... - skt
13th? are you kidding me?! should be in the top 5 at least! A7X did a great job here!
A7x did an awesome job at remaking it. - MEEKOYV 4 Comments
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
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!
