I don't care for most cover versions, though there are some great ones, and a few better than the originals.
Covers are great, since I don't have to learn new lyrics to sing along.
I have always liked Nirvanna's cover of The Man Who Sold The World. I thought they took that Bowie song and owned it...right up until I heard Jordis Unga sing it.Love them Both !
