Talk tunes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

listening to cash do hurt right now and it got me to thinking...what other covers blow the doors off the original? I say this with all due respect to NIN and their fans before I get flamed. but seriously, cash's version rules.

I gotta say I much prefer sonic youth doing superstar as well. hmmm....

Tough to pick on Dylan...
Thought Vedder and McCready's Masters Of War was awesome.

I wouldn't say it slays the original, but The Civil Wars' Billy Jean is a recent favourite.

Plus a couple of the songs from this performance:

To me, this Jimmy Eat World cover of Springsteen's "Take 'em As They Come" trumps the original.. Flame on..
