    This is great - John Doe covers the Replacements. I found it while I was looking for the Replacements covering Kiss:

    Social Distortion does Under My Thumb pretty well, and they also do Death or Glory. Maybe not better than originals, but pretty good.

    ^^^^BOOO!!!

    It's a Dave Mason/Traffic tune, this is the best cover, come on mang:



    You never hear the original, it's pretty damn good itself:



    (although I just read it's in the move "Flight", I didn't know that).

    ^^^ I love the Traffic release but fucking cocker is WAY the fuck overplayed.... I could live my whole life not hearing that again. But hey, its music and everyone likes a little bit different, and I like that.

    edit: quality kinda sucks but fun song none the less.

    I liked the gunners take on Sympathy - just sorta in your face without all the bongos & shit. Wouldn't say it's beter though.

    Pretty much every cover by the Stones, Zeppelin, and Hendrix is better than the original.
    Some of Tom Morello's live versions of Ghost of Tom Joad are kinda better than the Springstein version. Not Rage's version, the Morello weird solo "career" version.
    Metallica's version of Turn the Page.
    The Nirvana Unplugged versions of those 2 or 3 Meat Puppets songs.
    Oh, and like half of Sublime's first album is really good covers that in some cases might actually be better than the original.
    Johnny Cash's Devil's Right Hand, by Steve Earl. Steve Earl's version of Looking Through You, by the Beatles. The Beatles's version of Twist and Shout.
    ^^^See what I did there?

    I wouldn't say better, exactly, but this is a seriously smoking version.

    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    "Bang Bang" by Monophonics. Much better than Nancy Sinatra's original and Cher's cover.

    Black Keys - Have Love Will Travel is actually an Black pop song thing that White people in 1959 wouldn't have heard of done in the style of a 60's(?) pop group's cover/rip-off of it.
