    As a Beatles fan, I never really cared for remakes much, but that's probably because The Beatles get covered more than any other artist. However, I have made some exceptions, and would like to see your opinions on the matter.

    I think these covers are better than the original

    Love Roller Coaster by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers
    Tainted Love by Marylin Manson
    Stone Cold Crazy by Metallica
    Personal Jesus by Marylin Manson (Cash fans revolt!!) :eusa_whistle:
    Word Up by Korn - better than the original, but still not that good considering they only did it to piss of their recording label.
    Blue Monday by Orgy
    Riding On The Metro by System Of A Down

    Disagree with Tainted Love and Blue Monday.

    Ziggy Stardust - Bauhaus
    I Fought the Law - The Clash
    Because the Night - Bruce Springsteen (not strictly a cover because he wrote it, but his version is much better than Patti Smith's)
