Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 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. ❤️

142 Listen to Your Heart [acoustic] - D.H.T. (Roxette)
143 Electric Eye - As I Lay Dying (Judas Priest)
144 Dreamer Deceiver - Skyclad (Judas Priest)
145 Let It Go - The Last Sleepless Night (Idina Menzel)
146 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.

147 Run - Leona Lewis (Snow Patrol)
148 Beat It - Fall Out Boy (Michael Jackson)

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!

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

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

150 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

151 The Evil That Men Do - After Forever (Iron Maiden)
152 Bad Romance - Halestorm (Lady Gaga)
153 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

154 When a Blind Man Cries - Metallica (Deep Purple)

Best cover song of 2012 done by Metallica

155 I Wanna Be Your Man - The Rolling Stones (The Beatles)
156 Can't Help Falling In Love - U2 (Elvis Presley)
157 Get the Party Started - Shirley Bassey (Pink)
158 Southtown - The Ghost Inside (P.O.D)
159 My Perogative - Britney Spears (Bobby Brown)

Incredible song. It characterises Britney Spears.
