61 Planet Caravan - Pantera (Black Sabbath)

Beatiful Song And A Tribute To The Fathers of Real Metal

This should be number one! RIP Dimebag - louistheguitargod

62 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!

63 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

64 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Led Zeppelin (Joan Baez)
65 Smile - Michael Jackson (Charlie Chaplin)
66 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

67 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Machine Head (Iron Maiden)
68 Don't Talk to Strangers - Blind Guardian (Dio)
69 Going Blind - The Melvins (Kiss)
70 Live and Let Die - Guns N' Roses (Wings)

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

71 Come Together - Aerosmith (The Beatles)
72 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

Come on guys... This is the best cover song of this century and it deserve a higher place...

Truly one of the best covers of arguably one of the greatest songs of all time!

This is just amazing! Very beautiful! I definitely like this version best!
