One song that often gets brought up is Nirvana's cover of The Man Who Sold the World. Honestly, I love Nirvana's cover, but I think that's an example of a song where the cover is excellent, but not better.
That's honestly the first time someone has agreed with me on that. Nirvana's version is great, but I still prefer Bowie's original.
I do prefer "Landslide" by Smashing Pumpkins versus the Fleetwood Mac original.
