64 Diamonds - Any Given Day (Rihanna)
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 Come Together - Aerosmith (The Beatles)
69 Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley (Carl Perkins)

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

70 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

71 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...

72 The Green Fields of France - Dropkick Murphys (Eric Bogle)
73 Love the One You're With - Stephen Stills (The Isley Brothers)
74 No More I Love Yous - Annie Lennox (The Lover Speaks)
75 Numb - Fame on Fire (Linkin Park)
76 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

77 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

78 I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking for - Disturbed (U2)
79 The Trial - Dark Funeral (King Diamond)
80 Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson (Gloria Jones)
