I don't know if it's really that heretical, but in my opinion, ANOHNI's version of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' is 🙌🏼 and suits the lyrics way better than Guns N' Roses version.

Never forget that "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" is an original song written by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 movie Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid.

Oups. I thought so. I was miseld by my quick 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' google search and seeing Guns 'N Roses name all over the place. Thanks @Soundofus for the info.

Disturbed's version of Simon and Garfunkel's Sound of Silence is amazing. David Draiman's again are amazing. Such great vocal range. He made a version that is both emotional and gripping.

One of the best covers I have ever heard.

@meahtenoha ah you break my heart (I mean I can get down with the Dixie Chicks sometimes) but Stevie Nicks is my girl.  

 

For my heresy, I would say that I prefer Joan Jett & the Blackhearts version of Fun, Fun, Fun over the Beach Boys.

When I first heard this cover on Disturbed's newest album, I couldn't believe it was them at first. They've managed to re-create a masterpiece in such an emotional way and yet still maintain the same ideation behind the original. I've never been a huge Disturbed fan myself, but a lot of songs on Immortalized resonate with me.

Don't worry @klee1214 I still love my Stevie. Have you seen this video of her warming up--it's gorgeous:

Sorry @MartinStoichkov I don't agree and I will try to point out why. Regarding cover versions I think, that the best covers transform the original to something totally new. The artist applies his personal style to the cover (Metallica's version of Queen's "Stone cold crazy" comes to my mind) and the original song is translated to a different genre (The Cardigans cover Black Sabbath). The Limp Bizkit cover is very close to the original, the kind of guitar-arpeggios, the harmonies, they have just cut the last section of The Who's original and inserted a middle part with an annoying A-a-ay over the same guitar-part, which sounds ... funny, something I would not expect from a song about loneliness.

It's like "Let us cut the fast crazy part to make a proper Radio-ballad". The singer sounds like "I don't care about the lyrics, but let us copy Daltrey as good as possible and add some roughness to sound like a decent Rock-singer". At last they have added an also annoying Phaser-like sound in the background throughout the verse.

Hey, this was quite a rant, maybe because I am a big fan of The Who 🙂
