Great remake of a classic.
3 time better version than original.
Nothing's more Swedish than this cover - Yngwie covering ABBA! It's a great metal cover. - Metal_Treasure
It's the best cover of iris! The voice and emotion of KEllin Quinn is definitely gorgeous. Urgghh. I can't get over it. ❤️
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.
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
I still prefer the original but this is brilliant. - LedSabbath
No doubt best version of War Pigs - UFasten8Me
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.
