WHAT?! Are you serious?!

That..... that.. thats just like saying you can't see why water is wet. You have heard Live at Sin-e, right - Night Flight (Yes, I know that's a cover), Last Goodbye, Lover You Should Have Come Over? He could write pretty good lyrics, play guitar damn well, and had one of the best singing voices I've ever heard in rock music. Excuse me while my head asplodes.

I really like Jim Sturgess's "I've Just Seen a Face" from Across the Universe a lot better than the original version.
That whole album really works for me. I especially love the version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" from the film.

Yup. In fact, I gave that record another chance just last year on the recommendation of a young friend whose musical taste I admire. Jeff Buckley just ain't for me. What can I say?

Not realy better, but Grand Funk Railroad does a kick ass version of the Stones Gimme Shelter on their Live Album Caught in the Act

I like Alien Ant Farm's version of Smooth Criminal better than Jacksons.

Priest's "Diamonds and rust."
Metallica's "stone cold crazy."(I love queen to death, but this cover rules)
Marilyn Manson- Rock and Roll Nigger
Nevermore's cover of Judas Priest's "Love Bites." I never cared for the original very much at all. NM slows it down and makes it sludgy and heavy as fuck.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

Not better, but "Northwest Passage" by Show of Hands works just as well as the original Stan Rogers version, just differently.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

Glen Campbell's new cover of Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) is SO much better than Green Day's original.

I find Green Day extremely irritating and quite uninspired personally, but Glen Campbell's version really outlines what a solid piece of songwriting that song is. I offer my congratulations to the GD (Billy something?) singer for his songwriting skills, but not his performance.

Add my vote to the Buckley Hallelujah crowd also.

Proud Mary? CCRs original version is just about as perfect a rock song as was ever made.

Rocket Man? The Shat's version is distinctive but comical.

Smells Like Teen Spriit? You really are on drugs, you know.

Who covered Smells Like Teen Spirit?


Edit:
Nevermind, I saw it.

I haven't heard that, but I can't imagine liking it.
