What covers do you like more than the originals?

I Love Bowie, but Nirvana kicked this songs ass.

Love how sexy and dark he made this

Only musician to ever cover a Beatles song and make it a 100 times better

Black Sabbath Fail! Pantera Wins.

Talk Dirty to Me by Reel Big Fish is pretty cool. I'm not the biggest fan of metal/arena rock/hair (whatever you wanna call it) bands, so I wasn't a big fan of the original.

I find this song to be better to be better than the original.

See, you went and dun messed up this whole thread by posting Metallica covering the misfits...Its something I DO NOT APPROVE OF.

Here, is something worthy of mention. Its odd he covered this song, and I love both versions, but this one is pretty sweet.

Great White, another badass band. Started off as a Zeppelin cover band but have their own stuff too. Cant beat plant on vocals, but this guy is pretty damn close
