Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
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.
Shows what brilliant musicians Yes were and are.
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
Carlos Santana's version of this Peter Green classic stays true to the original while adding a new flair to it through Santana's Latin influence. The Gypsy Queen solo adds a lot more power and "oomph" to the song, enough for me to consider it an incredible cover song. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
One of my favourite songs in the MTV Unplugged performance (hard fight though), Kurt voice just give me shivers every time I listen to this song.
This deserves top 5
What kind of people visit this page anyway?
Seriously? I'm sure a lot of votes will change once people actually hear this
This is without a shadow of doubt the best cover song I have ever heard. When Kurt screams those final lyrics I get cold shivers and even a bit emotional to think what couldve been if Kurt never shot himself - Danielsun182
omg, i get shivers from just hearing the last lines he sings - odin666V 1 Comment
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
