Best Song Covers EVER!

Recommended Posts

Out of interest, does anyone know of a cover of one of The Beatles' songs which is better than the original? A couple of weeks ago I read something from a music journalist who didn't think so because of George Harrison's guitar work (which I disagree with but hey) but it got me thinking, and so far I haven't been able to think of one.

I'm kinda biased since I like At the Gates and I dont particularly like Slayer but I like At the Gates' cover of 'Captor of Sin'. Im not really sure if I can class it as 'bett'er but I really rather it. :thumbup:


I dont need a siggy no moar.

I feel like a broken record, but Zakk Wylde did a cover of Beatles's Come Together which I think I prefer over the original - although that might have something to do with the fact that I heard his version about 100x times before I heard the original.

 

 

 

[hide=Come Together][yt]WT8ez972VuY[/yt][/hide]

 

 

 

He's done literally a ton of covers (probably something like 30-40). Here's one of Stairway to Heaven which I honestly also prefer over the original, the solo is orgasmic.

Also two covers Joe Bonamassa has made, first one is Tom Waits's Jockey Full of Bourbon and the second is of the classic Feelin' Good. The guy is a blues genius.

I'm pretty sure the only way someone would ever consider a Beatles cover to be better than the original is if they had already heard the cover a bunch of times already.

We Will Come Silhouettes by The Shins. Original song by The Postal Service. Great song, but the style of the Postal Service just doesn't do it justice. The Shins make it wonderful though.


There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,

and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That

regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,

better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.

It's experience.

Sea of Treachery's cover of Paramore - Misery Business. I love both versions.

 

[yt]v=Fn-VYmNDszc[/yt]

 

 

 

Also, Ben Gibbard - Against All Odds (Phil Collins)

 

Iron & Wine - Such Great Heights (Postal Service)

 

The Academy Is... - Working Class Hero (I normally hate bands covering classic songs but this is pretty good. Opened my eyes to how amazing John Lennon's solo stuff is.)

I'm not sure if Th3's posted these yet, but here are my favorite. I generally do not like Covers or remixes at all.

I just love how serious he takes himself in this. I laugh at it a lot. Good song, horrible video.

One of my favorite covers ever.

 

 

 

 

 

And this one makes me laugh.

I feel that this is far better than NIN's original version.

 

 

 

Which may have been why I mentioned it on the first page, and two other people already quoted agreeing with me.

 

 

 

:oops:

 

 

 

Go eat a rock. At least I posted a video.

Before you say anything, yes, the second song is a cover. It's a cover of Robert Johnson, a legendary blues player.

Smoke on the Water covered by AC/DC is just great. Far better than Deep Purple's version because they aren't stoned out of their minds.


So, basically Earthysun is Jesus's only son.
