:P Yeah it wasn't terrible although it does sound at some parts like the singer is using auto-tune or something, I'm just partial to anything sung by Paul Rodgers.
and nice call on the Motorhead, hadn't heard that version until now.

Even though I love them both the same, most people would say Jimi's version is better.

Another great version (PS. there is some sax in there for you sax lovers):

Plenty of great musicians have covered All Along the Watchtower.


U2 also did an amazing job with this song, but I agree Jimi's version is best

This is a good one... Henley's is a classic! It's rare to find on YouTube because Henley doesn't want it up due to copyright infringement.

I love Frank Sinatra.



Sid is awesome, too!



This? Not so much! :lol: I know it's not the same tune, but, it's funny as hell!

Almost isn't right covering the Beatles but Aerosmith did a nice job and put their own stamp on it.



Now for what was voted the worst cover of all time. Warning, I am not responsible for cleaning up any vomit that results from watching this video.

First AC/DC's classic version.



Now Celine Dion and Anastacia's (whoever the Hell that is) monstrosity. The first comment on youtube pretty much sums it up "if this doesn't give Australia the right to invade Canada, what the f does?"
