i love it when it happens.

when i think covers that are better than the original i always think of the cover gary moore did of red house by hendrix.

i know most prob wont agree on this cause you know, its hendrix but i think gary's version is better



any that you can think of?

Yeah Jimmy Hendrix - All along the watchtower by Bob Dylan. I've heard a rock version by Dylan too but Hendrix made it superb.


EDIT - your avatar is way too freaky dude.

Both blow away the original, in my mind.

I completely agree.

I think Dylan is great, but I often prefer covers of his songs.

I have to say that Joe Cocker's cover of With A Little Help From My Friends is much better than the Beatles' version. Sorry Ringo!

Good thing, because my shoe just came flying at you


Korn may be one of my fave bands, but no cover of anything by Pink Floyd exists in my world. The flying shoe was for you trying to disrupt my music bubble.

@Nechash
Really?

KoRn's version better than the original? That's like saying the Deftones' version of Drive is better than the Cars' version...

Yeah, it's cool, but not better... I'm pretty sure even KoRn would smack you for that!


I dig Al Green's version of 'Broken Heart' more than the original. I LOVE the Bee Gees, but damn, Al Green's version is just so bad ass!

However, in the vein of Nechash, I bring you...
The Cardigans - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

[ I'm being facetious of course ]

I always thought this was really good cover of U2s 'One'

even my music expert brother in law who hated warrens singing said this was better than U2

Dylan has probably been covered by more bands than anyone. Dylan's singing is, well, an acquired taste. I think his songs are meant to be covered and reinterpreted. Besides it makes me cool when my sons favorite band covers Dylan and I can sing all the words.
