The Clash are one of my favourite bands, (the only band that mattered), and they made I Fought The Law famous but here's the original that was written by Sonny Curtis and recorded by The Crickets when he replaced Buddy Holly after he died.

It was then recorded by rockabilly band Paul Stefen and the Royal Lancers.

The Bobby Fuller Four then had some minor commercial success with their version of the song.
There is some controversy over one of the lines Bobby Fuller sings in this version - I doubt many would pick up on it though.

It's testament to what a great song this is that so many varied bands and acts have covered it, here's just a few;

Ducks Deluxe, She Trinity, Beatsteaks, Viper, Bryan Adams, John Cougar Mellencamp, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Social Distortion, Stiff Little Fingers, Mike Ness, Waylon Jennings, Gary Allan, Green Day, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Ska-P, The Jolly Boys, Grateful Dead, Stray Cats, Mary's Danish, Claude François, Mano Negra, the Big Dirty Band, Lolita No. 18, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Attaque 77, Die Toten Hosen, Status Quo, Nanci Griffith, La Vida Bohème, Anti-Flag, Chumbawamba, Tsuyoshi Kawakami and His Moodmakers, The Airborne Toxic Event

The Clash version is undoubtedly a classic but I guess almost everyone has heard it so I'll finish with the great Mike Ness doing his take on it.

Lars Sømod - No Surprises (Radiohead)

Technically, it might not be a real cover since he co-wrote the song. But it's a completely different arrangement and with Alison Krauss, so I consider it as a cover version anyway.

Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Black Dog
