Living Colour's version of Back in Black is better than AC/DC's.

I like Elbow's cover of Independent Women better than the Destiny's Child original.
It is rather good, isn't it?


That's how I heard of it.

Ugly opinion is that Rod Stewart's DOWNTOWN TRAIN is better than the original. Not that it's a great song anyway.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

Can we consider The Rutles as a cover band?

No. They never played a Beatles song.

Turn, Turn, Turn - The Byrds

It's really a Pete Seeger song.

That would go for pretty much every song written by Dylan. Great writer, horrible singer.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

ZZ Top - Viva Las Vegas
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLUl8xkKSTk - It's not completely better than the original, more like an homage.

Guns n Roses - Sympathy for the Devil
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmHZL...eature=related - I'm sure a lot of you have this soundtrack in your collection!

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

I was trying to think of a Depeche Mode cover that improved the Depeche version. There aren't any. Gravity Kills do a decent Personal Jesus, Rammstein do a cool Stripped, Deftones do a meaty To Have and to Hold and In Flames heavily brutalise Everything Counts, but no one beats the Mode it seems.

Marilyn Manson and Lacuna Coil, of course, ruined their songs.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

The Jam's version of "David Watts" was a definite improvement on the original version (by The Kinks').

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

I think William Shatner's version of Pulp's Common People is better than the original, Shatner's vocal inflections really make this work, he gives it this great snark, and Joe Jackson is great.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXWEM4gZhg4 (good sound - set to Star Trek TAS scenes)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzlwKNbwxkw (best sound - some dude lip-syncing)


And I love Nina Gordons' cover of NWA Straight Outta Compton even though it's so wrong (or maybe right...)

I never knew that was a cover but I'm digging Mac's version right now....
