I really think so. Not to slag off the Beatles or anything.
if you don't slag off the beatles I will .. U2's helter skelter is so much better.

* Die die darling - MetallicA
* Night and Day - U2

u2's cover of helter skelter is not better than the Beatles', by the way.
It's basically the same, but with worst production...which is weird since it was recorded 20 years after the original

I really dislike U2's version of 'Helter Skelter'. The Charles Manson speech is cringe-worthy and the song itself is played way too slowly for my liking.

Buckley now own's Hallelujah!!!

I may get flamed for this but Pretender's doing Dylans 'Forever Young', her voice is perfect for this song.

Duran Duran's 'Perfect Day', even Lou himself admitted this.
