I wish Nirvana would have recorded a studio version of Immigrant Song.

I've never been able to stomach The Early November's cover of "The Power Of Love". That song was written to be loud and cheesy, and that's ok. I feel like they sucked the fun out of it and just made it try to sound like more of a serious message than the song is really conveying. I like reinterpretations of songs when they work, but they should maintain some semblance of the original song's spirit, and that cover never makes me happy to feel love or want to experience it.

How did New Found Glory not make this list?! They have so many great covers! Blitzkrieg Bop, King of Wishful Thinking with Patrick Stump, Iris with Will Pugh, Don't You Forget About Me, Lovefool with Adam Lazarra. And pretty much every track from their first From the Screen to Your Stereo. They always give amazing covers!

Agree. I love The Early November and the Power of Love, but I can't handle their cover.
