Ok, this thread is simple. In your opinion, what bands have covered songs that turned out to be better than the original version. You have to put the song, the band that covered it, and the original artist.

This is the only one I can think of at the moment.

Song: Die Die My Darling
Artist: Metallica
Original Artist: Misfits

Thats basically

Oh wait I got another one

Song: Oops I did it again
Artist: Children of Bodom
Original Artist: Britney Spears

Ok that was just to be funny but yeah, what other covers are better than the originals. So yeah.

One more note. Weird Al songs don't count.
VERY METAL!
\m/
RIP Ronnie James Dio

A good portion of Between the Buried and Me's cover album consists of better covers than the originals.

It was alright until he starts screaming and butchers the song with his high pitch whine.

On topic, Gary Jules Mad World is much better than Tears for Fears version.

Yeah, Nirvana's Meat Puppets cover is much better. To add:

Whiskey Bar - The Doors(it was a cover of German song...)
House of the Rising Sun - The Animals(I like Dylans version a bit better, though)
Jeff Buckely - Hallelujah

and more I can't think of...

My friend said to me "Hey, the Used came out with a new song! It's awesome!"

I'm like "I like the Used, I'll look at it"
She said "It has an awesome bassline, you should learn it.
Me: LOL OKAY What's it called?
She said: Under Pressure
I think: Nah...couldn't be

I thought Tainted Love by Soft Cell was a cover of Soft Cell by Gloria Jones or whoever. So technically you like the cover of a cover better than the original.

Song: Best Of You
Cover Artist: Stereophonics
Original Artist: Foo Fighters

And this cover is good, but I like the original and cover equally.

Every Beatles cover! They always outdid the originals...Roll over Beethoven, Twist and Shout, Money (That's What I Want) just to name a very short few!
