Every so often a band covers a song from another artist, and without even realizing it that becomes the song to you. Someone mentions it and that version comes to your mind. It has completely overshadowed the original in such a way that words cannot fully grasp.

Songs such as hurt by Johnny cash

Original by nine inch nails

https://youtu.be/prDoGmY5kj8

Or the sound of silence as performed by disturbed

Original by Simon and Garfunkel

You should hear this. You kinda wonder for the first few second but then he reaches into the music and the instrument.

I think the amazing thing about great cover songs is how divergent the interpretations are.

Alexisonfire - The Dead Heart (Midnight Oil Cover,2010)
A much angrier version than the original. Which I think considering the subject matter is appropriate.

On this day in 1991, Nirvana appeared at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where they played a new song, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', live for the first time. Other local bands such as Mudhoney, Tad, Mother Love Bone, and Soundgarden all appeared at the club, which has now been turned into a residential property.
