Yes - America
Nirvana - Pretty much every cover they have done

And just about every damn song Elvis did was a cover.
Nirvana's covers are pretty good, and they're usually of some great bands, but I've always found that when I went and listened to the original, I almost always liked it better. All the Meat Puppets versions I think are more compelling than the Nirvana covers, I like the Vaselines' version of Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam better, although that's really the only Vaselines song I'm very particular to, and there's other stuff too. Their cover of "Here She Comes Now" is pretty uninspired, "Turnaround" is an ok version of a not so good song, and I don't really like their cover of "Where Did You Sleep Last Night."

"Love Buzz," on the other hand, is one of my favorite Nirvana songs.

I've said it to much and im getting sick of it.
The Bizkit cover wasn't bad.
It sounded the same.
The only reason it "sucked so much"
Is because you all hate the band.
Which is a complete bullshit reason.

They were/are a significant part of music, especially during the 70's and 80's.I like and respect both bands/artists very much for what they've done/created for classic music!!!
Although a band may start a song, it doesn't mean that they were the reason that the song is now well known or popular!!! The Beatles wrote a great song, but as far as making it successful and well known in the music scene, Elton John pretty much owns it!!!Nobody really cared as much for that song before Elton John did it and no offense to The Beatles whatsoever, but Elton John made that song a much better one!!!
In closing, I love The Beatles and respect them all...
...For me, there "White Album(s)" show the true greatness of the band, without a doubt!!!

well 311 did the cure's love song and made it popular but who's song do we call it. that's right the cure's because no matter who made the song popular it is still the writer's song. And up until now i was not even aware of the fact that elton john sang that song much less made it popular. So lucy in the sky with diamonds remains the beatles though it may have been covered by elton john it is theirs. End of story.

I really like 311's cover of love song. Partially becuase I prefer the sound of 311 better I'm sure.

Yeah to quote Patton Oswald, "The Cure made music for fat pasty overweight theater majors"

311's a little more jack of all trades than the cure.

They both recorded it on their albums!!! I don't care who's you prefer or know the most!!! They both own it forever because music lasts way longer than many artists/bands do!!!Just think about all of the greats that have died and we are still listening to many years later!!!Good music lasts forever and so will the song for both Elton John and The Beatles!!!Elton John recorded the song and it is forever tattooed into his albums as well as legacy!!!The Beatles were the original, although both bands have that song that people will hear and judge by their own opinions for many years to come!!!They will decide which one they like better or thought was better!!!Popularity doesn't make a song good, the artist(s) do!!!Here's something ya gotta learn man, many bands cover and record other bands songs each day!!!Obviously they're not all in jail for playing/recording another bands song, understand!!! Then THAT'S the End of the Story, period!!!
