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
Star Trek: The Animated Series

I'm very selective about the reality I accept.

Re: Rock covers. When the cover was better.

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. - The original by Dr. Dre... meh. - Ben Folds cover (ignore the video, some fan video)
