Ooh, a good one! I LOVE the backup singing on that track, especially going into the last chorus. Good stuff.

Like everyone else said: Johnny Cash - 'Hurt'


And this one's not better than the original, but it's pretty damn close:

'Love Is Blindness' -- Tresspassers William

The 'Please' snippet is

I haven't heard Trespassers William's cover of LIB, but I absolutely love their cover of Suzanne Vega's "Left of Center."

Teddy Thompson -- Tonight Will Be Fine (Leonard Cohen)
Mariah Carey -- Without You (forgot who sang this first)
Dixie Chicks -- Landslide (Stevie Nicks)
Stevie Wonder -- Redemption Song (Bob Marley)

oh, I really must say P. Diddy's (Puff Daddy? Pimp Daddy?) cover of The Police's Every Breath You Take....

His cover of "Down with the Sickness" is breathtakingly rad.

It's a close call but I have to go with Tom Waits. Bruce's is great, but Tom Waits' is brilliant.

The correct answer is Hendrix' "All Along the Watchtower"

Runners up:
"You Really Got Me" Van Halen
"Sonic Reducer" Pearl Jam
"For You" Manfred Mann (Sorry Boss fans)
"Never Let Me Down Again" Smashing Pumpkins (not "Landslide")
"Dancing Barefoot" U2 ( how has this thread reached 4 pages with no mention of this?)
"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" Marilyn Manson

I also disagree with who said that Ryan Adam's Wonderwall is better than the Oasis version... Ryan Adams just made a watered down, boring, cheesy version of it...
