Placebo did an album of covers that I really like. IMO they did a great job on songs such as

Running up that Hill - Kate Bush
Bigmouth Strikes Again - The Smiths
I Feel You - Depeche Mode
Where is my Mind - The Pixies
20th Century Boy - T. Rex

I always liked the Guns N Roses cover of Live and Let Die too
Actions lie louder than words - Carolyn Wells

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature - Frank Lloyd Wright.

Horrid, horrid cover. I realise that this doesn't really could as 'rock' but the Patti Drew version is THE version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CTSaXjOzfA

I've always liked Elvis' version of this better than Neil's:

I like Elvis' versions better than a lot of originals, actually. He was a very talented arranger.

I asked my kids and their vote was for Running up that Hill. You must be young at heart.

I wouldn't call it the best rock cover song ever but Guns n Roses did enough with Knockin on Heaven's door, to get me interested in Dylan. I like both but also the Clapton version.

Here's the great man, Richard Thompson, making something out of nearly nothing...

Just remembered one I like though the original is also freakin' great. That is Sweet Jane by The Cowboy Junkies.

It truely is refreshing to know that a REAL legend like Richard Thompson has not gone unnoticed. My favorite Richard Thompson songs are "1952 Vincent Black Lightning", and "The wall of death". Richard Thompson is a legendary British folk music singer, song writer, and guitar player. He does not make the girls swoon like Elvis, and Neal did, but he is still pretty good.

If you didn't know that after reading the OP about Hendrix and Dylan (and the posts of those who subsequently agreed), then I have less hope for you than I thought.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Hendrix, and Dylan are obvious pics, but Richard Thompson does not get a lot of play on the radio, so I had to give it up for those discriminating music lovers who like me enjoy his music. If there was a crappiest music thread many of the songs on this thread would make it to that list also.

It should be pointed out that Al believes only bad music is mainstream and that not widely accepted is good.

He who controls the terms of the debate controls the outcome. Good lesson for magicians framing their presentations, too.

ok, so the categories available are "People who share my taste in music" and "People who love crappy music."

On a tangent, do you guys like Raymond Carver's short stories, or are you complete idiots?
