Better Than The Original?

In the past, I remember reading sites that would post some cover songs, that they thought were better than the original. I agree with some of them, some reggae songs translate well into punk, rap to spoof rock, and the list goes on.

Here’s some songs, that I love both the original and the cover.


Original – Eddie Cochran
Cover – Sid Vicious


Original – Little Walter
Cover – Elvis Presley


Original – Nine Inch Nails
Cover – Johnny Cash

The one I have to say I like better, (should be obvious,) is Johnny Cash’s cover. Of course the song means something to Johnny Cash, more than just the sound or lyrics. But it’s meaning, and where it touched Johnny Cash’s soul. Which makes his cover a lot more meaningful and better than NIN version.
