Pearl Jam - Fuckin' Up

I think I like MLB's version of Crown better.

Let me just say ... I'm glad you didn't mention 'Astronomy' !!

I guess you finally realize BOC's version should NOT be touched !!

Oh yeah, can't believe I forgot that one! Metallica's Astronomy is tighter and sounds a lot cooler than BOC's clunky version!

I'll tell you what... one thing is clear. Metallica (and by that I mean the good Metallica pre St. Crapper) is criminally underrated in this forum!

How did I know you were gonna say that ??

Let's not start this disagreement all over again ... regarding BOC's original VS. Metallica's cover.

Otherwise, I may have to "revive" that 'Floydian' thread ... just so we can AGREE on something !!

i reckon that the byrds recorded what would become the definitive version of 'mr tambourine man', though dylan wrote and recorded it first.
mr mcguinn and company teased a pop gem out of a somewhat lengthy and rambling folk tune.
depending on my mood, i'll take the manic street preachers version of 'raindrops keep falling on my head' over the original (bj thomas).
speaking of the manics...
they did an absolutely savage and heartbreaking version of 'suicide is painless' (theme from m.a.s.h.)
i've no idea who did the original, but this one is better.

all along the watchtower by jimi hendrix is the definitive answer

even dylan plays the hendrix version because he knows it's better

The definitive answer is...

The Kingsmen version of 'Louie, Louie. (1963)

A song so often covered radio stations hold Louie, Louie marathons. The original was by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs but the Kingsmen is most remembered.

Honorable mentions to the vivisection Judas Priest give Joan Baez's 'Diamonds and Rust.'

Crap, can't believe I forgot 'I Love Rock n Roll.'

Never heard the original, but like anything she touches, Joan wears it.
