I hope you know that Dave Mason plays guitar on Hendrix's version of the song.

The original is also a Nine Inch Nails song so the Cash one wins by default.

Great Covers For Otherwise "Awful" Songs
 
I was listening to this song by Jaymes Young and could not figure out where I heard it from at first--but then it dawned on me that this his song "What is Love?" is a blatant cover of Haddaway. Now Haddaway's original is not my cup of tea--and not because of all the "owhoo whoooh whoaaa ohh" 's in the song. But it got me to thinking, if others had covers in their libraries, for songs that otherwise would not have made the cut, if left up to the original artists.

I love every song on Undisputed Attitude except the final, only non-cover gawdawful song, forget the name. I posted the Dr. Know cover from that album earler in the thread, in honor of the sad passing of Jeff Hanneman

I discovered Dr.Know because of that album. It's a good band ^.^.
I think I'm one of the few that actually loves undisputed attitude, it gets a lot of hate.
