Cover Me

Sully is having a great contest, the best cover song in rock. I feel like it should stick to 1980 onwards, as so much of what came out before were, in fact covers (really, is anything going to top The Beatles version of Twist & Shout? or Elvis' Always On My Mind?) And we can't count the kings of the great covers, The Ramones. So far I nominated The Clash's version of The Equals' Police on My Back and The Pixies great cover of the unconquerable Head On by the Jesus and Mary Chain. What a great contest - like you, I've thought of about a million other examples since I started this post :)
