All Along the Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix) Report Abuse

Comments:
Recognized as a signature Hendrix tune, "Watchtower" was originally performed by Bob Dylan. This is maybe the best-known cover song around.

Hurt (Johnny Cash) Report Abuse
59 points - added 5 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
This song may has well have been written for Cash in the first place. Try not to get goosebumps within the first three lines.

Turn the Page (Metallica) Report Abuse
14 points - added 5 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
This cover is just indicative of the fact that Metallica has improved on every song they've ever taken on. Consider their cover of "Wonderwall" by Oasis a runner-up.

Paranoid (Megadeth) Report Abuse
7 points - added 5 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
It may be blasphemy to say so, but Megadeth's energetic cover of "Paranoid" blows the plodding original out of the water.
