Best Song Covers EVER!

Recommended Posts

Well, if we have one on bad covers, why not on good ones too? This way, we can also hear stuff that is actually pleasant :P . I'll start off.

 

 

 

At Vance's cover of Abba's "The Winner Takes It All"

By the way, this band does a lot of similar covers, they're great.

 

 

 

Blind Guardian's cover of Uriah Heep's "The Wizard"

Demons & Wizards' cover of Cream's "White Room"

 

[yt]O7sHmBfYvMc[/yt]

 

 

 

Ensiferum's cover of Mettalica's "Battery"

Firewind's cover of "Maniac" (from Flashdance, not sure of the original artist)

The Battery cover was alright, but the Blackened cover was just horrible.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley, the only cover I've ever heard that's better than the original.

I haven't even heard the original to be honest, but Jeff Buckley does that song very well.

 

 

 

My votes go for Faith No More's rendition of Easy and War Pigs. Both excellent covers.

Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is awesome.

 

yep.

 

 

 

RadioHead cover for the Smithes' Headmaster Ritual.

Good cover but without any sort of interpretation.They simply play it and play it good.

 

 

 

SonicYouth cover for The Carpenters's Superstar was also nice

She did a really good version of Nico's Janitor of Lunacy when I saw her a while ago, but I can't find it on youtube.

Though it did bring rap to the mainstream (I personally think back when rap was about everything, not hoe beating and pimpin, it was fine...now it's one of the worst genres), Run DMC's cover of Walk This Way is pretty good:

That's a good example of why covers are not necessarily a bad thing. Even though Queen's version is great, this one is also. They are both good in different ways.

That cover sucks...I swear, compared to the original song, it totally sucks. Never meant to be metalfied.

I don't think Saxophones are meant to be turned into guitars...That's just my opinion though...

 

 

 

 

 

OH! I can't believe this one wasn't mentioned:

I don't mind that Seether cover at all. The original is cool too but a bit too cheesy.

 

 

 

RHCP's cover of Havana Affair by the Ramones is awesome:

I like the live version better, but here's the studio:

Agreed.

 

 

 

I like Iron Maiden's version of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath more than Black Sabbath's.
