Depending on your definition of "Covers", I imagine that most people came in here to find a list of different people's covers by bands. However, if you were raised like I was, you would expect to come in here and find pictures of bed comforters. Whatever your choice, it's going to be the first choice.

Just as the title says...what are some cover songs done by bands that you think either rock out loud, are better than the original, etc ?

Personally,

Wind Beneath My Wings- Sonata Arctica

is probably my favorite cover....mainly because they're one of my favorite bands, but still. I enjoy how it is sung far more than the original version, and it has some really neat bass parts, and a kick ass guitar solo.
Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.
