    Stones did a better version each and every time they've performed it.

    I don't even need to click the link to know the Stones original is better. But I'll click it to humour you...

    *listens*

    *laughs*

    No - I'm sorry. Not even close. But thanks for playing.

    Bobby Darin's version of "Beyond the Sea" was better, I thought than the versions I've heard dating back to 1940's and 1930's

    The Leaves and Jimi Hendrix did "Hey, Joe!" better than the original

    Disturbed has performed a lot of the 1980's hits better, I felt, than the original renditions (e.g., "Shout!", "Land of Confusion")

    It's very very rare you'll manage to find a cover thats better than the original, dont forget the original is what made the cover ;)
