Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to name some cover tunes. Not just any cover tunes, and not just good cover tunes... Cover tunes that you like more than the original.

I'll get us started:

"All Along the Watchtower" by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, originally by Bob Dylan (I think I prefer the album version, but I couldn't find it)
"Live and Let Die" by Guns n' Roses, originally by Wings
"It's My Life" by No Doubt, originally by Talk Talk
"Sweet Jane" by Cowboy Junkies , originally by The Velvet Underground
"Got The Time" by Anthrax, originally by Joe Jackson.
"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by Propellerheads, originally by John Barry


EDIT: Added more songs, links, and original artists.

Toxic - Local H

Right On Time - RHCP The song isn't a "cover" but there is "cover" involved. Quite possibly the best "cover" ever
