The Best Covers

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

But as nudge suggested, Johnny Cash's Hurt is probably the best.

It's crazy that's actually a cover.

Mad World by Gary Jules.

Oh man, Donnie Darko was so good.

I don't think I've ever heard a Beatles cover I've liked. Even Coroner couldn't pull me in with a cover. The originals are always significantly better.

Bob Dylan's been covered really well though.

All 3 of those shit all over the Nobel Prize winning songwriter's versions imo. But I hate his voice - can't deny that he's a fantastic songwriter. Otherwise those covers would have been shite.

Bonus metal cover:

Death's cover of Painkiller is the best cover of a metal song I've ever heard - it sounds distinctly like Death, but retains so much of the original feeling from the Judas Priest song. It's a quality tribute.

One of my favorites. You know you've done it right when you make Robert Plant tear up.

That was the first thing that came to mind, GET OUTTA MY HEAD xD

Pretty powerful given how personal that song that was for Reznor and even hes admitted it belongs to Johnny now. I love the way the video is shot too.

I think like Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt, this one is also pretty famously associated with Jeff Buckley (I'd also argue the same thing about All Along the Watchtower & Jimi Hendriix... but that's beside the point). Although, I don't think it's quite like Trent Reznor saying the song is now Cash's - because it's also probably the most iconic Leonard Cohen song.

Came across this the other day. Best tribute I've found.

One of them songs that I don't listen to enough. Gary Jules' version is so well done and is much better than the original for me.

The Animals track is a tune. The other one ain't for me.

Probably my favourite live album/dvd. They did a cover of the Ramones Havana Affair.

Killing Me Softly - The Fugees

Remember growing up listening to this and only realised a couple of years ago it was a cover.

Loved this.

 

In a way it's probably the "greatest" cover of all time.
