Social Distortion - Under My Thumb

Mick said this was the best cover every done of any song.

I wouldn't say these are better than the original, but they are still well done.

Gary Juels(sp) Mad World
Johnny cash-Hurt
BCDC-hurt
Twiztid- Die mother fucker Die
Twiztid- The Joker (Steve miller band's version is still more catchy though)

Just because I like boys doesn't mean I want to go out with Mike.

tool- no quarter

I hate tool, but I have to admit that it's a pretty awesome cover.

My vote goes towards the Metallica Garage days covers, and also Faith No More's cover of War Pigs.

Comfortably Numb - Scissor Sisters. Maybe not better but I love it.

Tough to improve on the Beatles (Flying Lizards notwithstanding) but this is fantastic.

Higher Ground by the Chili Peppers is a good one.

Pearl jam covers a lot of Who songs live and did a greta version of Love Reign O'er Me at the VH1 honours The Who. but it's been pulled from You Tube. found it somewhere else.

Whoa Cam… surely you knew better than to unleash Scissor Sisters on the great unwashed masses?

Of course, there's the whole Hayseed Dixie back catalogue… better than the originals? In some cases, maybe.
