Best Cover Songs

Postby acsguitar » Mon Jan 09, 2006 7:56 pm

Just wanted to see if we could get a cool list of good cover songs.

For example:
Joe Cocker's "With a little help from my friends" by The Beatles
Jimi Hendrix "All along the watchtower" by Dylan
Tool: "No Quarter" by Led Zeppelin
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Err i usually listen to the originals as i find em better but,

Love Rollercoaster - Chili Peppers

Tuesdays gone - Metallica

Knockin on Heavens Door - G N' R

I have a Hendrix of Johnny Be Good where he plays it live and its amazing.

Those are the ones that come to mind, there are prolly many more live shows where bands played great cover songs.

Nice list...All hendrix covers rock.... Hey Joe is a cover, and I've heard him do Sunshine of your Love.

There are a lot of bands that do great covers..

Rage's Renegade Cd is all covers right?

im a big Dylan fan. however, this is one of two cover songs that are actually better than the original. Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt is the other.


a few good ones :

Whiskey in the Jar - Metallica

Statesboro Blues - Allman Brothers




the worst cover ever :

Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow

My favorites -->


Zeppelin's Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is a Joan Baez cover. I love that song!

I liked Johnny Cash's version of NIN's Hurt. There are not many guys who can convey that immense sadness with just his voice.

Nirvana covering Bowie's Man Who Sold the World. I think Nirvana did it better.

I like Metallica's version of Bob Seger's Turn the Page.

GNR doing Live and Let Die.

And tons of Clapton or cream songs that they covered.

Dylan is one of my favorites but i totally agree that Hendrix made it better.

I've always liked Donny Hathaway's version of "A Song for You" and Jimmy Cliff's version of "Many Rivers to Cross"

Leadbelly wrote a song in 1939 called "Black Betty." Ram Jam sped it up and did a great cover in 1977. Nick Cave did an even better version in 1986. Oh, Black Betty.
