Speaking of Beatles covers deserving of this thread, Wilson Pickett’s & Duane Allman’s Hey Jude is as good if not better than the original. I mean it spawned an entirely new genre of music. (southern rock) They took a great song, and made it better.
Meet me in the nearest Publix parking lot if you think there is a better cover song than this:
Such a good cover. The best. June on the stairs towards the end, she died like 2-3 months after filming of that, and then of course he was not far behind her.
Music is subjective, for sure, but I think this version is really really really fucking awful and I hate it.
there is a great cover of Atlantic City but it sure as fuck wasn't that one posted above
one thing you can count on, is that Bob Dylan's original versions will be worse than the cover
I feel like a few people in my life told me, “wait until you hear Disturbed do the sound of silence, it’s incredible...”
I love all of those people, but they universally have horrible taste in music.
Better than the original? Lol, no, but I think it's still decent.
If I were a musician, any genre, and the Isley Brothers covered one of my tunes, I would literally work it into every single verbal interaction in my life from that point
In which RATM turns a boring Bob Dylan song into a banger
Just now seeing teel posting a bro country dude’s cover of The Band’s cover of the Boss and shaking with anger
Me too. That was the same quality as every dude paying behind a beer pitcher with eight ones in it at every shopping center bar below the Mason-Dixon Line. If you think that's even a decent cover, you don't know why that's a good song. Utter trash.
Like Florida-Georgia Line covering RATM covering The Ghost of Tom Joad or incorporating pigeon meat into a turducken
i love a good cover
Not sure where else to put this.
Willie doing anything>>>
Of course typically he’s being covered without people knowing it.
Both of these are much better than the original Steve Earle & Del McCoury version
No Toto cover will ever be close to the original
I've heard a number of covers of Deep Purp's Highway Star and man people need to stop trying to cover that
On a serious/cool note, Mike Portnoy saw a cover that guy did of a Dream Theater song, and is sending him a real drum set. Every once in a while, social media isn’t the absolute worst.
Hey I had one of these drum sets too
Absolutely not. I mean this as no disrespect to Willie but you literally cannot improve on a perfect song (much less a perfect album which Graceland is).
Every time this thread gets bumped I start braying like a distressed cow
Not sure if posted but this is the first song that immediately comes to mind
Cory Henry is probably the best keyboardist alive rn and he knocked both of these out the gd park Scary Pockets has a lot of really interesting covers:
Another Scary Pockets cover, this time from Monica Martin. I can’t say if it’s “better” than the original, but it’s definitely cooler.
You can spend hours on this page listening to covers. This one is definitely my fav:
