Anyone know if any cover songs that were done better by the cover band than the original?


I wasn't to sure about this one, but after listening to it a couple times i dig it.

erikmonty, agree. Not necessarily better, but good:

Take on Me - Reel Big Fish

Boyz-N-The-Hood - Dynamite Hack

Black Betty - Spiderbait

Rusty Cage - Johnny Cash

Alec Eiffel - The Get Up Kids

Where is My Mind - Nada Surf (already listed, but needed reiterating)

Also, the Punk Goes Crunk album has a few good tracks.
