oh no he di'nt

So I absolutely don't agree FOR SURE that Van Halen's cover of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" is superior to the original. What? What?! And Eric Clapton's "I Shot the Sheriff" makes me wanna shoot myself after I've taken down the sheriff (but not the deputy.) But I do agree with this list of "10 Covers Better than the Original" on "Hallelujah" and "Hurt"-- while I don't think Johnny Cash's cover is "better," I think he transcended the original material and made it firmly his own. I don't even listen to the NIN original these days.

NOW. On the other hand, coming up, I'll be posting a few covers I think at least rival the original, if not surpass em.
