good cover but I think the original is better.

I agree with Holy Diver, the KsE version is just better all round.

Also the AwesomePossum5 version of Stairway to Heaven is superior.


haha

Original is better, but the cover is good too.

Saul Williams cover of Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2, I think the original is awful though.

No, no no. Dio reigns. The original is better.

Any cover by Ten Masked Men is better then the original.

Pretty much any Metallica cover is going to give the original a run for it's money.

No More Mr. Nice Guy - Megadeth
Iced Earth - God Of Thunder
Iced Earth - Hallowed Be Thy Name
Death - Painkiller
Iced Earth - Screaming For Vengeance
Vader - Raining Blood
Alien Ant Farm - Smooth Criminal

Those are all that come to mind for me.

The Metallica cover of Maiden is not the best.
And seriously, the original Hallowed Be They Name can not be beaten.

BTBAM's cover of Us and Them is NOT better than the original by Pink Floyd. Seriously.


Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan)
Rufus Wainwright - Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
Alejandro Manzano - Umbrella (Rihanna) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5paQ9BwFAgI

Dude, the 30 seconds to mars cover of kanye west's remix is better than what kanye west did.

It doesn't touch the original Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

They are good covers, and they are a good band, but I prefer the Maiden ones, especially as some of the drums sound out of place on the covers.
Although, the "NOTB" has a better scream at the beginning then the Maiden one.

EDIT: Maiden are the greatest live band ever. Seriously, nothing can beat a Maiden show - the band, the music, the lighting (best lighting ever - especially Fear of the Dark during "The matter of the beast" tour - that was just too amazing, being there, with that song, and those lights), the stage, the props, and Eddie. Nothing tops that. Bruce's vocals when live are pretty amazing too.

Jeff Buckley's rendition of "Hallelujah" blows the original out of the water and back. In my opinion, it's easily one of the greatest covers of all time.
Stevie Ray Vaughan's instrumental cover of "Little Wing" is epic. I prefer it to the original.
Oddly enough, someone did mention Korn's cover of "Another Brick in the Wall, Pts 1-3". I'm not a big fan of Korn, but I don't think their version is terrible. I actually do enjoy listening to it; more so than I would "Twisted Transistor" anyway.
"Take chances. Do not go through life wishing, instead go through life remembering. There are too many possibilities out there to let them just pass you by. Above all else, have FUN. You only live once, enjoy it while you can."
#36
In Flames - Land Of Confusion
Killswitch Engage - Holy Diver
The Living End - Tainted Love
Metallica - Tuesday's Gone (not quite as good as the original but still fookin' great)
Machine Head - Message In A Bottle
Arch Enemy - Kill With Power
Foo Fighters - Baker Street
Faith No More - Easy Like Sunday Morning
Cannibal Corpse - No Remorse

Most of those originals are quite amazing too

EDIT: Oh, and the Dispatched cover of The Final Countdown
Gooby Pls.

IMO...

Astronomy - Metallica (Blue Oyster Cult) [Along with most stuff on Garage Inc.]
Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Guns N' Roses (Bob Dylan)
I Started a Joke - Faith No More (The BeeGees)
Planet Caravan - Pantera (Black Sabbath)
Faith No More - Easy (The Commodores)

also FNM's version of Sabbath's "War Pigs" would give the original a run for the money.
Don't buy Guitar Hero.
Buy Guitar Pro.
