I am probably in the minority on this but I can't stand Cocker's version. You gotta be pretty bad at singing when Ringo out does ya. Just my $.02

No slight to the Kinks, but I think VH's version of "Where Have All The Good Times Gone" is superior.

I know Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" is held in high regards, I think the Social Distortion version is better.

Bob Dylan's cover of Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower".

See...I love Cash and all...but I think that is one of the most overrated covers of all time.I dig the orginal and was never a fan of Cash's version.
