Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 6
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
Lot of people like this song. I love this version.
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
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
Can't believe, it's not at least in Top 50. This is what a good cover-version is all about creating something new and different, but still respecting the original. Not just a perfect imitation, or even, just speeding or slowing the tempo down, like so many in this list.
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!
