Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Tom Sawyer - Deadsy (Rush)

Great remake of a classic.

122 Got The Time - Anthrax (Joe Jackson)

3 time better version than original.

123 Get the Party Started - Shirley Bassey (Pink)
124 It's My Life - No Doubt (Talk Talk)
125 Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! - Yngwie (Abba)

Nothing's more Swedish than this cover - Yngwie covering ABBA! It's a great metal cover. - Metal_Treasure

126 Iris - Sleeping With Sirens (The Goo Goo Dolls)

It's the best cover of iris! The voice and emotion of KEllin Quinn is definitely gorgeous. Urgghh. I can't get over it. ❤️

127 Electric Eye - As I Lay Dying (Judas Priest)
128 Dream On - Dio & Malmsteen
129 Dreamer Deceiver - Skyclad (Judas Priest)
130 Let It Go - The Last Sleepless Night (Idina Menzel)
131 Seek & Destroy - Primal Fear (Metallica)
132 Without You - Mariah Carey (Def Leppard)

Wow. This was a cover done by Nilsson of a Badfinger tune. Maria covered a cover of a cover. Nilsson's version was incredible and deserves to be on this list.

Even definitely Leppard thinks her cover is the right one after waiting for years for someone who could make it right...

Who wrote this, their spelling is terrible. This combination of song and voice is amazing.

133 Run - Leona Lewis (Snow Patrol)
134 Lake of Fire - Nirvana (Meat Puppets)

Outstanding!! My favourite cover of all time! This song is truely emotional to listen to. R.I.P Kurt

135 Bad Romance - Halestorm (Lady Gaga)
136 Love Song - 311 (The Cure)

For as much of a douche as Nick Hexum is... this song has an amazing groove.

I like both versions, this one like many 311 songs has a good guitar sound. - NuMetalManiak

Great reggae version, but I'm sorry, Nick Hexum is no deuche. - Lemonjelo

137 War Pigs - Faith No More (Black Sabbath)

I still prefer the original but this is brilliant. - LedSabbath

No doubt best version of War Pigs - UFasten8Me

138 Careless Whisper - Seether (George Michael)

Seether's version of this song makes it edgy and raw...its like a completely different song. One of the best cover songs of all time. This should be top 5 at least...

This is the song that got me into Seether. It definitely deserves a better spot than this, it needs to be in the top ten at least - Danielsun182

139 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - HYDE (The Beatles)

No one else can do a better version of this ever.

140 The Evil That Men Do - After Forever (Iron Maiden)
