Anthony Vincent does awesome covers along with his Songs in X Styles. Here's an example of each:





As for someone earlier mentioning Metallica's version of Am I Evil, here's a more awesome version live:

Tom!

Been a long time. I like their version a lot and love to watch them, but I gotta still give the nod to S&G on the music alone.

Mike Ness covering Bob Dylans Don't Think Twice, It' All Right.

I remember watching this one when it premiered on MTV's 120 minutes. Possibly before I even knew it was really a Dylan song as I was not really into Dylan at the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rTbInqWC54

The more countrified album version:

I'm not sure this is better, but it is different. Sharon Van Etten and Josh Homme covering Nick Lowes (What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love and Understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvIBsyLePtQ

Townes Van Zandt was a great, great songwriter, but this is the definitive version of Pancho and Lefty.



Better? Probably not, but I like the Derek and the Dominos version of Hendrix’s “Little Wing.”



Stevie covered this one pretty well too.

Don't recall how I came across this, years ago. Probably at my favorite local record/CD store at the time.

Back in my early teens the doo-wop group The Tokens covered The Lion Sleeps Tonight (originally: Mbube). Always loved that song.

Years later, The Nylons covered it. I've since compared the two and feel they did it better.

Lanie Gardners cover of Fleetwood Macs 'Dreams' comes to mind. A great voice by an attractive girl.

It has its place, but definitive? That honor goes to Merle and Willie I think.

Motion Device.....I think they changed their name to Quarter after Three covering Black Sabbath's "Heaven and Hell" and Dio's "Last in Line".

There’s no bigger Merle Haggard fan than I, I believe him to be the GOAT. I still think Emmylou’s is best Wink
