Ya know, upon further review; the guitar in Iggy's version is so rockin that I changed my mind! Suppose it's when you ask me, if I am in a banjo mood, its Wilco and if I am in a rockin mood, it's The Stooges! I am sure I will think of more later and more to add.{#Cheers}

Ok, generally speaking covers are rarely as good as the originals, but that is not always the case. This is a thread to give examples of covers you feel have outdone the original versions. I will start with a couple:

Dreams I'll Never See - Molly Hatchet  to me is better than the Allman Brothers original.

I Wanna Be Your Dog - Wilco is cannot possibly be better than the original done by Iggy Pop.

Of course all of this is totally subjective as is all music opinion, but have fun with it!{#Cheers}
