Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

IMO Frankie Goes To Hollywood recorded the definitive version of "War."

And the band Laibach recorded an entire album's worth of covers of Sympathy For The Devil that deconstructed the song with seven different versions. None of them were better than the original, but it is nonetheless a fascinating listen.
