What's a cover song you enjoyed more than the original performance? For me, Scarlet Begonias by Sublime, a cover of the Grateful Dead song of the same name.

"99 Red Balloons" by Goldfinger and "Surrender" by Less Than Jake.  :)

Not a bad song, but haven't heard the original. I'm actually trying to learn that song on the guitar.

Who said I was a Metallica fan?:P The only reason I like the original better is because I knew of Bob Segar earlier than I did of Metallica.

It's up to the individual. I'm really not a fan of Bob Dylan, or the genre in general, and I like rock.. do the maths ;)
