The Contenders: Page 9

161 Just the Way You Are - Pierce the Veil (Bruno Mars)
162 Right Now (Na Na Na) - Asking Alexandria (Akon)

This is totally awesome PLUS this is AA..

163 Crash Course In Brain Surgery - Metallica (Budgie)
164 Carry On Wayward Son - The Showdown (Kansas)
165 Seek & Destroy - Primal Fear (Metallica)
166 Wonderwall - Robbie Williams (Oasis)
167 Blew - Miyavi (Nirvana)

A fierce performance, with furious acoustic guitar - I think the boys of Nirvana would be entertained by Miyavi, because he is on fire! and happily insane.

168 With a Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker (The Beatles) V 4 Comments
169 Honesty - Beyonce (Billy Joel)
170 Always on My Mind - Pet Shop Boys (Willie Nelson)

ALWAYS ON MY MIND, Pet Shop Boys? what? Are you kidding? That song was originally done by Elvis in 1972, and then Willie ruined it. I've never heard The Pet Shop Boys version, but I'm pretty sure they ruined it too.

171 Jolene - White Stripes (Dolly Parton)

A good rock version to an old classic.

172 Torn - Natalie Imbruglia (Ednaswap)

better than the original many thought that she did the original song - ronluna

I agree with ronluna.. it's an amazing song I didn't thought that this is actually a cover song
Natalie is great her voice is angel-like.. Is that even correct? Angel-like? Buhhh whatever

173 I Love Rock 'n' Roll - Joan Jett (The Arrows)

this is the version everyone is probably most familiar with

174 Sweet Jane - The Cowboy Junkies (The Velvet Underground)
175 I'm Only Sleeping - The Vines (The Beatles)

Simply Amazing. Any Fan of either the Vines or The Beatles should listen. Heck if you love music hear this song!

176 Still Loving You - Sonata Arctica (Scorpions)

GREAT! made the song energetic! not that sobby-sobby kind like it was in the original...

177 Nocturne - Hyde (Die In Cries)
178 Mony Mony - Billy Idol (Tommy James & the Shondells)
179 Perfect Day - Duran Duran (Lou Reed)

Dreadful, just like all the other ones on their All-Covers-Album and I don't mind many of their own songs.
