Who did it better, the original or the cover?

CCR: Fortunate Son by the Circle Jerks! Not only better but way more fun!

I'll probably get hate for this, but whatever:

At work.

Roxy Music/Brian Ferry: "Jealous Guy."

Originally a Beatles tune, I think.

I'm a big Disturbed fan, but this cover did nothing for me. One of the weakest songs in their catalog.

It was written by Paul Simon, so theirs is the original.

You could make a thread about the Hendrix's covers that were better than the originals. Jimi's version of Howlin' Wolf's Killing Floor is the song that ran Eric Clapton off the stage when Hendrix jammed with Cream. As far as I know there are no recordings of that night, but here is one of Hendrix's renditions of Killing Floor.





One of my personal favorite covers is Gov't Mule's version of Free's Mr. Big.

That's the reason I gave the caveat. Most people, that I share my opinion about this cover with, think that the original is better than Disturbed's cover. Maybe I'm just that easily influenced by commercialization of covers or whatever, but I do like Disturbed's cover more. Not significantly more or anything, I just think the difference in style in the original and the cover is not really comparable (like the canard of comparing apples and oranges), and I happen to like the cover more, without actually comparing them directly myself.

BTW, thanks for clearing up that Simon & Garfunkel's version is the original.
