Just the mere mention of the title may have some people steaming, quickly saying to themselves, “How dare you imply there exists a cover song better than the original! The original is always better! I don’t like change, everything has to stay the same!”
More often than not, you’d probably be right. Much like remaking a movie, a cover tends to just take away the original’s inventiveness and replaces it with some befuddled garbage nobody asked for. However, in the rarest of circumstances, one revamped cover song will come along that not only does the original justice, but actually improves upon it. They may be few and far between, but you can’t deny they do exist. With this in mind, we’ve found and compiled together a list of five cover songs that turned out to be even better than what the original had to offer.
