A List of Bands Whose Songs Sound Better Covered

Any song by the following bands sounds better when someone else covers them.  I will add to the list over time.

  • Led Zeppelin (see “Dancing Days” by STP, “Ramble On” by Foo Fighters, even “Come With Me” (essentially a cover of “Kashmir”) by goddamn Puff Daddy is better)
  • Bob Dylan (obviously “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix, but also “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Guns N Roses, “Mighty Quinn” by Manfred Mann, even “Mr. Tambourine Man” by The Byrds)
  • David Bowie (obviously “The Man Who Sold the World” by Nirvana, but also “Heroes” by The Wallflowers, “Sound and Vision” by Beck, even “Space Oddity” by goddamn Smashing Pumpkins)
