love this song great words to live by

Shinedown added great power to the already beautiful words from Lynyrd Skynyrd

Perfect, underrated cover

You can't get much better than Ronnie Van Zant LS but Brent Smith and the Shinedown kill this song. Loved seeing it live and shocked it's not higher up on the list of top covers!

110 #9 Dream - a-ha (John Lennon)
111 All Time High - Jarvis Cocker (Rita Coolidge)
112 Astronomy - Metallica (Blue Öyster Cult)

Metallica turned it into a diamond from a piece of coal.

Brilliant cover, the best cover ever, simply because it fits Metallica much better than Blue Oyster Cult and I really love Blue Oyster Cult.
The vocals are so chilling and the guitars are brilliant, Metallica are the kings of cover songs. - IronMaidenFan666

113 Antisocial - Anthrax (Trust)
114 Gimme a T for Texas - Lynyrd Skynyrd (Jimmie Rodgers)

117 Last Kiss - Pearl Jam (Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers)

Pearl Jam added so much emotion to this song

118 It's All Coming Back To Me Now - Celine Dion (Pandora's Box)

Celine has a voice that no one has and it is a god giving talent and its the song ever she has a range that no one can top not even Mariah Cary can top plus she is the number one singer in the world and can belt out any song with so much power that it knocks the socks right of your feet. Plus she is a real person and is not fake or full of them selves unlike some famous people I now who think there the greatest thing since slice bread plus she gives some her money to charity and is a greacious, kind, funny is a great person and a amazing mom to her son and has a loving relationship with her husband for a long time and no one can top that no matter how hard they try.

Jim Steinman wrote the songs "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" popularized by Bonnie Tyler, Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" popularized by Air Supply", I'd Do Anything For Love But I Won't Do That by Meatloaf and this song "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" originally recorded by Pandora's Box in 1989 and in 1996, Celine Dion made her version to it which brought great success to her career. The song was also recorded again by Meatloaf with Marion Raven in 2006. Celine's version of this song is superb, and noone can make the song better than her. Great music video. Everything is just perfect. This song is undoubtedly the greatest song of all time.

Noone can deny the fact that the first time the person listened to this song would really feel the power and the greatness of the song. Wrote by famous songwriter Jim Steinman, "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" has proven itself that it is the greatest song ever. Great arrangement. Great vocals from Celine Dion, Fantastic lyrics, bundled into a very classic, unforgettable and enthralling song. This song has made an indelible mark both in music and on human memory. - RLAAMJR

The best rendition the world has ever known... The perfect lyrics matched the perfect vocal of Celine Dion... Triple A+...
Excellent!
Superb!
Out of this World... One in TRILLION...

119 Man Who Sold The World - Nirvana (David Bowie)

Truly... the magic of Kurt Cobain... Best Cover ever! - hereisHorizon

Can't believe this song is way down in this list.. This together with all along the watchtower-Jimi Hendrix are the best cover songs to be ever performed

The best cover of Nirvana and all time, they made it better than David Bowie!

I think this one must be in the principal list

Pure class

120 The Sound of Silence - Disturbed (Simon & Garfunkel)

Damn this is good. There is sadly a trace of vocal modification but the overall result is good.

It's a great twist on a popular song. You don't expect a heavy metal bad to remix a folk rock song

Pretty good version from their brand new album.

How can this be so low? not enough people know it?
