What is the best cover ever made?

DJ Dingo doing Lady in Red? I don't think so...

The best?

Redirect if needed...what am I talking about. You'll be redirecting me before I post this. :)

The most overplayed would be Alien Ant Farm's cover of Smooth Criminal.

Noel Gallagher's version of Help.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Fiona Apple, "Across the Universe." I think I like it better than the original. Plus, it has a better music video.

I Shot The Sheriff by Eric Clapton is liked by most but I like Marley's  much better. Even Clapton called Marley a "musical genius".

Metallica does do a decent cover of this song, but I think the fashion in which they did the song takes away from the concept of the song and what makes it great. The song is about being out on your own and when Seger performs(ed?) it, he basically did it all alone. He was on the stage just like the song, all alone, playing the star again.
When I was just a baby, my momma told me, "Son, always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns." But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
