Every song that Boyce Avenue does is better than the original. Sometimes even gets more youtube hits than the original.






And if there are any of you guys who appreciate A Capella music.

Disagree, their cover is boring and uninspired, though all of their music is.

Deftones did it much better.

Speaking of the Deftones, I've always loved their cover of Duran Duran's "The Chauffeur":

Nothing wrong with the Deftones but the lead singer... never could stand to listen to him. I don't care for Shinedown's normal stuff either, but like their version of the song just a little better than Skynyrd's

While I'm not exactly a Nirvana fan, I do like their take on the Meatpuppet's "Lake of Fire"

Again, not the biggest Marylin Manson fan either, but I do like their versions of "This is Halloween"

"Tainted Love" (this is the cleaned up version of the music video, but it's Not exactly Work Safe, either )

I love Manson's version of "This is Halloween". I have it on my iPod. I've heard part of "Tainted Love" during the preview of Clash of the Titans.

As much as I like my metal and rock, I also enjoy laidback music at times.

Rollin' and Tumblin

This song has been covered dozens of times.
Muddy Waters did a hell of a job on the original:



but Jeff Beck & Imogen Heap's version is killer!

I love Urge Overkill's cover of Neil Diamond's Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon for Pulp Fiction.

I feel awkward posting this one because its a mixed genre and the original is quite popular, but what the hell. Min-Hop meets Seattle grunge, and I think its better.

Original: Pearl Jam - Why Go


Cover: P.O.S. (Minnesota Min-Hop rapper and producer) - Why Go

Anything by "Me First and the Gimme Gimmes", all they do are punk covers of other famous songs. I wouldn't say better than the originals because they cover some really great songs but it's so different that I really like them.
