My Top 5 are (in no particular order):

All along the watch tower - Jimi Hendrix
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
Unravel - Radiohead
Feeling good - Muse
Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You - Muse


edit: I think I need to change the topic title somewhat :S

I think "Hallelujah" is valid. I think it has to be included on my list.

I Am The Walrus - Oasis
Born Never Asked - Spiritualized
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
Wonderwall - Ryan Adams
New Age - Ride

Is Step On really a cover? I know they sampled a song for it.

Omg. Am I really so ignorant? That's not an original Nirvana song?

Embarassed

Wow, that's... bizarre. Now I feel really really stupid. Neutral

haha. The Nirvana song is a Leadbelly cover. He actually says the in the recording. How could you miss it? Razz

...and Step On is a proper cover. They changed it a bit, but the general song is pretty much the same. That cool little guitar bit and the "twisting my melon" bit is pure Ryder, though (unless they're sampled from something else). It was originally by a guy called John Kongos.

Wonderwall - Ryan Adams
Johnny And Mary - Placebo
Mrs. Robinson – The Lemonheads

This is a tough one. There are alot of good covers out there. These are just 5 which came to my mind which I really like.

1. Love, Reign O'er Me - Pearl Jam (The Who cover)
2. Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam - Nirvana - the distortion version (The Vaselines cover)
3. Where is my Mind? - Placebo (Pixies cover)
4. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away - Eddie Vedder (The Beatles cover)
5. Ms Jackson - The Vines (OutKast cover)

Just realised it was excluding the Vines....so I'll substitute I Am The Walrus - Oasis (The Beatles cover) instead of Ms Jackson - The Vines.

I hope I'm not the only one in thinking that these covers are much better than the originals

I wonder what the Pearl Jam cover version sounds like. If it is better than the original, because the original is very beautiful, in my opinion.

The Who's version is beautiful, but Pearl Jam and ed's vocal on their cover totally own that song. One of my all time fav songs.

Check out this link to a live version Pearl Jam did for a tribute show to The Who. Such a good live vocal performance in this video.

Here is a link to the studio version which can be found on the soundtrack for the Adam Sandler movie Reign Over Me.

I know only 2 covers, which are better than original except that, what you have already written.

Lake of Fire-Nirvana (Meat Puppets cover) (I think every song that Nirvana covered on MTV Unplugged is better than the original Wink )
Wild Horses-Bush (Rolling Stones cover)
