Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
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
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
Not a lot has been changed in orchestration, none at all in lyrics, but the voice of Tarja has taken a great song to a new level.
I still prefer the original but this is brilliant. - LedSabbath
No doubt best version of War Pigs - UFasten8Me
Great song, Another brick in the wall is a great song by Korn. Best Pink Floyd Cover ever
This song was so annoying because of the way he sings and it's a very repetitive song
This cover is so great that we almost forgot the original song.
This has got to be the greatest original and cover song of time. Both #1 hits.
Best cover ever because it turned one of the worst songs ever made into something decent, well-composed and not just pop crap.
Yupp... that's called a 'cover' - hereisHorizon
