I'm unashamedly referencing Triple J radio's Like a version.

https://www.abc.net.au/triplej/like-a-version/

This thread is not just about Triple J, more a chance for us to share the best, worst and blandest of cover versions.
For me Santana did an OK cover of Black Magic Woman, Wet Wet Wet Wet did the worst cover of Love is all around and the best cover version is far to hotly contested to name just one.

The Troggs themselves liked this as their favourite version of Wild Thing

The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

To keep with your Jimi Hendrix post I'd say Stevie Ray Vaughan covering Vodoo Child at least IMO is better

Great covers:

Stan Ridgway and Wall of Voodoo doing a psychedelic version of Ring of Fire.

Pattie Smith Group doing So You Want to be a Rock and Roll Star.

(Sorry I can't embed Youtube videos, probably related to my browser security settings.)

Awful covers: Too many, too awful, too forgettable.

I'll go again. For me a good cover is one best when I didn't really like the original
