61 Wicked Game - HIM (Chris Isaak)

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!

62 Planet Caravan - Pantera (Black Sabbath)

Beatiful Song And A Tribute To The Fathers of Real Metal

This should be number one! RIP Dimebag - louistheguitargod

63 Soldier of Fortune - Opeth (Deep Purple)
64 Paranoid - Megadeth ( Black Sabbath)

This was better than Avenged Sevenfold version - Gh_player

65 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zeppelin (Joan Baez)
66 Diamonds - Any Given Day (Rihanna)
67 Smile - Michael Jackson (Charlie Chaplin)
68 Painkiller - Death (Judas Priest)

Ain't nobody ever heard this song? Come on man, this has got to be one of the best cover of all time... Its just amazing

69 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Machine Head (Iron Maiden)
70 Going Blind - The Melvins (Kiss)
71 Another Brick in the Wall - Korn (Pink Floyd)

Jonathan Davis' vocals work great for this song. And a great guitar solo by Munky. Much better than the original, and that's saying a lot - Shake_n_Bake13

Bull, pink floyd is way better than korn, another brick in the wall was a masterpiece

This song sounds better then the original, great job Korn -

I was looking for this song on here

72 Come Together - Aerosmith (The Beatles)
73 Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley (Carl Perkins)

Actually, having heard Uriah Heep cover this there can't be any better version for me.

74 Love the One You're With - Stephen Stills (The Isley Brothers)
75 Billie Jean - Chris Cornell (Michael Jackson)

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

76 Godzilla - Fu Manchu (Blue Oyster Cult)
77 The Green Fields of France - Dropkick Murphys (Eric Bogle)
78 The Sound of Silence - Disturbed

This is such a great version of a classic song. Paul Simon openly stated how much he likes the song. Draiman's singing is perfect. They didn't make this song super metal, their is violin, piano, acoustic guitar and Draiman's singing. Truly a great song

Simply magnificent!

Sheer Brilliance of a clasic...

79 Numb - Fame on Fire (Linkin Park)
80 Beyond the Realms of Death - Blind Guardian (Judas Priest)

One of those covers that would impress everybody - this iconic Judas Priest song is VERY difficult and emotional, and it needs a great singer, who is also able to feel the emotion of the original.
This singer sang his head off and his chorus is incredible ��" maybe he even succeeded to add some more passion and emotional power. - Metal_Treasure
