61 Diamonds - Any Given Day (Rihanna)
62 Smile - Michael Jackson (Charlie Chaplin)
63 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

64 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Machine Head (Iron Maiden)
65 Don't Talk to Strangers - Blind Guardian (Dio)
66 Come Together - Aerosmith (The Beatles)
67 Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley (Carl Perkins)

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

68 The Green Fields of France - Dropkick Murphys (Eric Bogle)
69 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...

70 Love the One You're With - Stephen Stills (The Isley Brothers)
71 No More I Love Yous - Annie Lennox (The Lover Speaks)
72 Numb - Fame on Fire (Linkin Park)
73 I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking for - Disturbed (U2)
74 The Trial - Dark Funeral (King Diamond)
75 Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson (Gloria Jones)
76 Bring the Pain - Mindless Self Indulgence
77 Fever - Peggy Lee (Little Willie John)
78 My Mind is Ramblin' - The Black Keys (Junior Kimbrough)
79 No Quarter - Tool (Led Zeppelin)

A genius pays homage. Tool's haunting and thunderous rifts pound this song deep into your psyche. Brilliantly interpreted! Tool fans, check out Staind's cover of "Sober. " its not amazing, but its rare and worth a listen.

The margin between these two songs is by far the most narrow.. The only song on this list or any where rock gods and geniuses covered other rock gods and geniuses

80 You're No Good - Linda Ronstadt (Betty Everett)
