Cover songs you think are better than the original
 
A perfect Circle-Imagine ( John Lennon would be proud).

Waynegrow 03-28-2005 04:30 PM

Ok i won't say this cover is better just cause Neil Young slays but it is a good cover none the less-Zack Wylde-Heart of Gold. P.S. waynegrow you double posting bitch.

^ Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" Cd is excellent. She does covers of Slayer, Depeche Mode, Eminem, John Lennon, Neil Young, Lou Reed songs among others. Excellence.

Waynegrow 03-28-2005 10:36 PM

Really i'll have to check em' out.

SATCHMO 03-28-2005 11:47 PM

There are a handful, but what I really love (and yes its sacreligious) is Stevie Ray Vaughn's Instrumental cover of Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix.

Sid Vicious-My way
and it is a throw up with Johnny B Good -Sex Pistols or Johnny Winter....for talent though, I say Winter...
and DK did a good job of Remaking Fought the Law.....

Anarchy doll 03-29-2005 09:28 AM

-Tainted Love-Marilyn Manson, Soft Cell does it great though
-Personal Jesus-manson again
-and I like his rendition of sweet dreams, but Annie Lennox man, can't be beat....
-also love his version of Bowies Golden Years, but it is not betta
-It's My Life- No Doubt

now that I see all this, Manson did alot of other peoples songs....well, I think he is just respecting them by giving his young fans a little bit of culture.....

Fenixpunk 03-29-2005 09:36 AM

or he knows that covering good songs will sell...
PDiddy comes to mind....hmmmm.

SaTaNsChIlD666 03-29-2005 10:58 AM

metallica: turn the page- Bob Segar Cover, and whiskey in the kar
Guns n roses- live and let die
Pantera- cat scratch fever ( which wasnt all that great)
this one might sound odd but i heard the Ataris do a cover of boys of summer and it was.........ok i guess...owe well im just namin the ones i know of

Nirvana's cover of Man who sold the world is good. But tell you whats even better... maybe not as good as the original, but just plain hilarious

Covering...Better?
 
as opposed to the other thread, cover songs that you think are better than the original.

First that comes to mind, is:
Send Me and Angel - Thrice,
i cant remember who did the original but it was horrible.

half_baked87 01-06-2006 09:03 AM

pantera - planet caravan, although the original was good too, they lit up cat scratch fever on the detroit rock city soundtrack too.
and this local band monument does a cover of rage against the machine's freedom, ****ing blows me away every time.

MURDER JUNKIE 01-06-2006 09:41 AM

Link 80 - Harvester of Sorrow
1000 Homo Dj's - Supernaught
Sunday Morning Comin Down - Johnny Cash
The Gambler - Kenny Rogers
