    AGREED! Hatchet has the quintessential version of this one...IMO.

    I'll also nominate Stevie Ray's Hendrix covers as equal to the originals.

    I like Hendrix and Johnny Winter's version of Johnny B Goode better than the Chuck Berry original.
    Watchtower has already been mentioned, but Johnny Winter did a great cover of Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited.

    Van Halen made You Really Got Me their own, but I still love the Kinks version too. I think that's the first punk rock song.

    they improved it greatly.

    Stone Sour, Heading Out to the Highway. A hundred times better than Judas Priest, the original.

    I'm not sure if they killed the vibe, or simply made it safe to listen to while driving at night....

    ROFLMAO...

    State Trooper: "Obviously, the driver fell dead asleep at the wheel...we found a Moody Blues cassette tape in the player..."
    Coroner: "Case closed!"
