Linkin Park > Adele - Rolling in the Deep

Although Adele has a remarkable voice, I think Linkin Parks acoustic version from the 2011 iTunes festival has so much more heart to it. Who would have thought someone so screamy and angsty to sing so pretty?
Just watched it over on YouTube and I have to agree with you, excellent rendition.

Frankie goes to Hollywood did a superior version of "Born to run" on the PleasureDome LP.

Also it would normally be sacrilege to cover a smiths tune but Dum Dum Girls did a great version of "There is a light which never goes out"

I have both, and enjoy both, but I think the White Stripes cover of Jolene is better:

I used to not like it when I first heard it but now I think it's awesome! Axl's voice when he is singing it live is just brilliant!

+1 Johnny Cash - Hurt

Imelda May - Tainted Love. Which is way better than Softcell's version. But Gloria Jones's original gives it a close run. We will not mention Marilyn Manson's attempt.
