are you sure about that...in music history a lot of great artists borrowed songs and made them there own, i bet some of your favorites might even be covers and you probably don't even know it...although maybe you do...

the foo song came out in 1998

Oh, then I probably haven't heard it.


I don't know. . .chances are, if I like any version of a song, then the original/cover can't be THAT bad.

Unless there was a chorus, lack of flute, and lack of sax in some version of Baker Street, then all past and future Baker Streetonians shan't get my love.

not to turn this into cover thread but here are few covers that blow the doors off the orginal

All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
Respect - Aretha Franklin (although i love Otis, Aretha owns this song)
Susie Q - ccr
Alabama Song - Doors
Backdoor Man - Doors
Cocaine Eric - Clapton
I Fought The Law - The Clash
Me And Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
Time Is On My Side - Rolling Stones

those are just a few, and of course there are a lot more covers that are worse, and a few that just are on par...
