    I get so excited when you get angry. It makes me feel so much closer to the reading of the will.
    Not angry bud. Just have a headache from rolling my eyes so hard.

    I love a good cover! I hate when I find out, usually YEARS later, that a song I grew up loving is actually a cover song. I literally found only a few days ago that 'Please Mr Postman', that I grew up with as a Carpenters song, is actually a cover of a song originally recorded by The Marvelettes. When I was a kid, I didn't know that 'God Gave Rock'n'Roll To You' was an Argent song, or 'Nothing Compares 2 U' was a Prince song, or even 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door' was originally a Dylan song (or 'All Along The Watch Tower' for that matter)

    Anyway, I put all the above as examples of covers better than the original. I also add

    'Death Walks Behind You' - Paradise Lost (originally Atomic Rooster)
    You Really Got Me' - Van Halen
    'Whiskey in the Jar' / 'Breadfan' / 'Turn the Page' / 'Loverman' / 'Stone Cold Crazy' - Metallica (Thin Lizzy / Budgie / Bob Seger / Nick Cave / Queen)
    'Hurt' - Johnny Cash (Nine Inch Nails)
    'All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You' - Halestorm (Heart)
    'Get Lucky' - Halestorm (Daft Punk)
    'Stronger' - 30 Seconds to Mars (Kanye West)
    'Hackensack' - Katy Perry (Fountains of Wayne)
    'Man Who Sold the World' - Nirvana (David Bowie)
    'Live and Let Die' - Guns N' Roses (Wings)
    'Word Up' - Gun (Cameo)

    I'm sure there's more, but that's top of my head
