There are amazing musical compositions which are original and unique.
Then there are those that are merely duplicating what others have done before.
Then there are those rare instances where it's actually both at once... post some of your favorites.

You'll have to skip to 1:50 for the cover to really begin.
Five Finger Deathpunch.

House of the Rising Son.

Disturbed doing Sounds of Silence. A slow start, but it gets better.

While my Guitar gently weeps. A superstar group cover this. The standout performer in this group in this instance is Prince.

Maybe the best cover ever. Far better than the original from Trent Reznor. By of all people Johnny Cash, just weeks before his death. HURT!

I almost put that one in my first post... classic example of a cover crossing genres and eras!

Zappa doin' Stairway To Heaven.
Yeah. Remember when Zappa had that horrible performance that sucked? Me either. ;)

Original(Donovan) was damn good.
This one is great:
Agreed. I find most of the covers of that song to be superior... although I guess that proves the song writer's ability. Great find!

Although I'm mostly over Metallica... I've always loved their cover of "Am I Evil" by DiamondHead (Doesn't hurt that I think it's the best metal song ever written by a very, very underappreciated band!)

And now for something completely different (no not Monty Python)...

The Beautiful South covering "Girlfriend" by Pebbles
