Great Song Cover Versions

Recommended Posts

Cade

We've all heard stinkingly bad covers of songs, but I think there are just as many great covers out there.

I'll get the ball rolling with just a few examples.

 

Jimi Hendrix covering Bob Dylan

 

Disturbed covering Simon&Garfunkel

 

Johnny Cash covering Nine Inch Nails

Therapy covered Husker Du and had a minor hit with it, but it would probably be banned now for its subject matter:

I think Quiet Riot cover of Come on feel the noise is actually better than Slades. The Oasis cover of it tragic.

The cover of ABBA’s The Day before you came by Blancmange is a lot better. Can’t find it though🤷‍♂️
