    Only just found out that this is a cover, the original is by Johnny Mathis (well it wasn't written by him, but he was the first to record it)

    This could be a little controversial but I prefer Patti Smith's 'Smells like teen spirit' to Nirvana's original.
    Nirvana covered bostons more than a feeling to come up with smells like teen spirit

    But the 'ultimate' cover would have to be Jimi Hendrix's cover of Dylan 'All along the watchtower'..IMO...

    dam beat me to it, he did loads of covers and they were all a good and sometimes better than the origional, even dylan said he liked this tune as mush as the origional.
