Best cover songs of all time

This thread is for cover songs that blew the original version out of the water like the cover of Ronnie James Dio's "Holy Diver".
It was inspired by this cover of an old 80's song that I used to dig.
"Never gonna dance again."

I like Vonda's version better than the others i've heard.
Shame it's not a video as well as the music.

If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

I don't think that counts as a cover... I think it is considered a classic. That being said your taste is shit as both Bob Dylan and Dean Martin could record better versions of that song using only their farts.

I wouldn't dare say any cover song is better than the original but there are some interesting versions out there.

Three that I like:

Get Down With the Sickness by Richard Cheese, White Rabbit by Collide, and Paint It Black by Deadsy

I like the white rabbit cover quite a bit, though the video is lame. The paint it black cover isn't that great though. Kinda cliche.
