The Contenders: Page 7
3 time better version than original.
Great remake of a classic.
Nothing's more Swedish than this cover - Yngwie covering ABBA! It's a great metal cover. - Metal_Treasure
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.
I think this version is better than the original. Yes, Michael Jackson is known as one of the greats but the original song always lacked punch. It sounded like a rock song that wasn't aloud to rock (even though the guitar solo was incredible) And this cover really lets the guitars rock! And even though Patrick Stump isn't as good a vocalist as Michael Jackson was, he sounds way more invested in the song. And John Mayer still keeps the guitar solo pretty strong. I just love this version.
This bring out the true rock power of the song!
Outstanding!! My favourite cover of all time! This song is truely emotional to listen to. R.I.P Kurt
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
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
No one else can do a better version of this ever.
