    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    Those aren't "covers" - they're parodies.

    And it's "Weird Al" Yankovic

    (or was that in reference to Jessica Sampson?)

    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    Zombie by Cranberries

    Zombie cover by Miser

    I prefer Miser, probably because it's the one I'm used to.

    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    Hendrix's cover of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower."

    I think NIN's version of "Hurt" is better than Johnny Cash's.

    Kermit needs to get with the times. Dolls are out. 3D is in.

    Apparently Bob Dylan wrote a decent song - but he couldn't sing it well.

    Original


    Turtle's Cover

    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    Whoever mentioned Over the Rainbow was only halfway there. They got the song, but the neglected to put the superior version.

    Clapton's Acoustic Version

    Also, on a more obscure note, Depeche Mode's Stripped.

    Original
    Drist's Cover

    I like Drist's, it is neat. Faster, yes. Rawkinger, yes. Awesomer? Yes.

    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    Rarely happens, only one I can think of right now is Venus:

    Shocking Blue version:

    Bananarama version:
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=iQkxYrPP43A

    Don't really care for either version of Hurt but Johnny Cash's does seem better.

    Oh, and another good MM remix:

    Personal Jesus (Depeche Mode)
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=KW3aEimWW10

    Personal Jesus (Marylin Manson)
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=BtuQMmgiCj4

    That's hilarious. Good old Swedish metal bands, always good for a laugh.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    He does good covers, and that's a good one, but it's not better than the original.

    Here's a couple I think were kicked up a notch:
    White Wedding - Billy Idol
    and
    White Wedding - Deathstars
    Pretty good cover, but not better than the original.

    There's more, I'm bored with thinking of them though.
    Wow, I'd never seen the original before. The weird thing is, they're pretty much exactly the same. That always seemed like such an 80s song to me...

    One of those songs that's been covered a thousand times, but I like the Primus version the best. I think the Guitar Hero 3 version by Steve Ouimette is about the worst.
    There are some good remixes of that song, but the original will always be the best.

    Jesus Christ... I thought you were going to say the Kim Wilde version... that is atrocious.

    You can't be serious.

    That's one of those songs that no-one should ever try to cover anyway.

    Get the hell out of here, Lucas.

    Re: Cover songs that surpassed the originals.

    CAKEs cover of "I Will Survive" probably the best cover ever, love it.

    Metallicas cover of "Turn the Page"
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=dOibtqWo6z4

    Rage Against the Machines cover of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" bonus funny video!
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=OLYV6F...eature=related

    I love both versions but I think Tools cover of "No Quarter" is a bit better, mostly because of Maynards creepy voice.
    http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=xzKWge...eature=related

    Johnny Cashs version of "Hurt" is sooo much better then NIN and probably one of the most moving videos I've ever seen.

    Mansons cover of "Personal Jesus" and "Sweet Dreams"

    I'm more of a fan of the Foo Fighters cover of Baker Street, although I like both versions.
