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

I love the Jam's version. To me it's the definitive version.

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

Not really.

Green Manalishi with the three pronged crown - Judas Priest's version is FAR superior to the original by Fleetwood Mac

When did they add the 3rd prong? Ok, I'm being facetious, don't listen to me, listen to Diamanda Galas.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

Not quite rock (Ben Folds is rock, just piano/geek rock, but...)

Ben Folds' version of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit".

Now that is how you do a cover.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic7KH1PpbMY - The original by Dr. Dre... meh.
