Knocking On Heavens door
  Cool tune but not by Bob Dylan
        I love when bands do that cover
              Roger Waters has a great version

I think Shinedown's cover of Simple Man blows away the Skynyrd version... but then again I'm a stickler for audio quality and spine-melting vocal sustain...

Shadow's Falls' version of "Welcome to the Machine" is way better than the original by Pink Floyd. Shadows Fall's version added so much intensity to the guitars.

God I wish I knew the name of the band, maybe someone could help me, but it was a chick singing - "I can see for miles" - by the Who...

I would give my right arm to know who did that cover because I am a huge fan of the Who, and I liked it better!

I've never heard a cover better than the original.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Oh, I'll also add 311's cover of "Love Song" by The Cure.

I know, I know, it's been overplayed TO DEATH, but I still think their performance of this song is simply more impressive. (Maybe this is because I don't like The Cure. :smile: )

I like the Coil version of Tainted Love.  I wouldn't say it's better then the original, it's just a completely different take on the track.  I like it though. :cool:

absolutely correct. Far better.



My pick:

Deftones - Please please please let me get what I want.


and the goldfinger cover of "99 red love baloons" destroyed the original.

I just stumbled upon this thread and was thinking.  "I really like Tool's "No Quarter" better than Zeppelin's original version".  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Local H did a cover of Toxic that actually sounds like it might have been a rock tune. Blows Brittany Spears out of the water. Never thought I'd admit liking a song of hers, but the Local H version verges on Nirvana-esque. The vocals in the chorus remind me a lot of Kurt's vocal style.

I definitely dig it... I can't even imagine how this could be a Britney Spears song. (Never heard it.)

The pre-chorus is fucking awesome. (the part that ends with "...do you feel me now?")

but I'd say the vocals in the chorus simply sound like Local H... hehe. Granted, the band does have a similarity to Nirvana.
