Also, Pantera covered "Cat scratch fever"

Anyone else have any cover songs that were as good as the original or better?

Metallica's Garage Album

All of the songs they cover are way better than the originals, way better.

I also like when they do Veteran of Psychic Wars.

The version of The Carpenters' hit, "Superstar," sung by "Superfan" (actually Chrissy Hines and Gin Blossoms) that appears ONLY on the "Wayne's World 2" soundtrack is exceptional. With The Pretenders, Hines also covered the song accompanied by Nash Kato of Urge Overkill. It's a good rendition, too.

Blood For Blood covering Motorhead's Ace of Spades was pretty good, imho.

I've also got a whole compilation of punk/hardcore bands covering old Oi! songs.

The youtube sound quality is horrible for this one. I have the goo quality on my Ipod and it sounds incredible on a good surround sound.

I like Shinedown, but that is the worst cover ever.

As others mentioned, Cash's "Hurt" is incredible. Find these, they are pretty moving as well:
Rodney Parker's "Atlantic City" and Todd Snider's "Fortunate Son".
