    There aren't many covers that can even rival or surpass the original, but that is one of them.

    Anothger good cover is Leon Russel doing Bob Dylans, Masters of War to the Star Spangled Banner. Pearl Jam also covered Masters of War on a Dylan Tribute and did phenominal.

    How did we all forget about FNM "Easy"???? Great damn tune!!!!


    Pearl Jam has done alot of covers. I have a bootleg from them that is entirely cover tracks. Eddie Vedders biggest influence is Neil Young, and he does alot of Neil Young songs.

    Man, I forgot all about "Easy." I haven't heard that Jane's Addiction cover...yet.

    I forgot another really bad cover: Limp Bizkit covered the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes." They didn't even cover the whole bleepin' song.

    A good one I haven't seen mentioned was Guns N' Roses: Live and Let Die. I actually like this version better than the original by Paul and Linda McCartney.
    Talk Show Host Interviewing Joker: Your said to have only killed about 600 people Joker. Now dont take this the wrong way but I think youve been holding out on us.

    Joker: I dont keep count. Im going to kill everyone in this room.
