Music Roundup Monday: "Covers That Did It Better"

Okay, not all of these covers did it BETTER, per se. Dio's "Holy Diver" is just as good as Steve'n'Seagulls' version. Same for Nirvana and Bowie with "The Man Who Sold the World." But they're as good, and in SOME RESPECTS, better. Now don't kill me. And yes, there are two songs by Nirvana. I like their MTV Unplugged performance. Sue me.

Steve'n'Seagulls - "Holy Diver"

Five Finger Death Punch - "Bad Company"

William Shatner - "Common People"

Nirvana - "The Man Who Sold the World"

Nirvana - "In the Pines"

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Higher Ground"

August Burns Red - "Baby One More Time"
