Two variations of the Archies/Don Kirshner super hit...

First the soulful version from the Wicked Pickett -



Then the killer sarcastic "heavy" bulldozing that can only be done by Alex Chilton -



Not too into the Germs' version which was better caught seen back in the day but I'm sure there are it's fans.

Scott Walker proving that this song was his (with help by producer John Franz, of course!). Shoved The Four Seasons' version into the world of the never heard for good reason.

I don't necessarily think its better than the original (if anything its a very close second), but I really love Twenty One Pilots version of Cancer by My Chemical Romance. Its very calm and sad and very fitting for the subject of the song.
