  • Twist & Shout - The Beatles
  • Long Tall Sally - The Beatles
  • Hurt - Johnny Cash
  • All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
  • Bridge Over Troubled Water - Elvis (Live)

They all come to mind.

I'm not sure if you think you'll get hate because people don't like MCR but I think you deserve hate in not recognizing the original is ten times the song this could ever be

A little of both really. I know many don't like MCR, however I also know many hold Dylan in high regards. Personally I like MCR's version much more. I'm more of a rock oriented listener, I like something I can dance to, work out to etc, Dylan's version is too slow for me, but that's just my opinion.

This is a comic website, everyone should love MCR, I did...and still listen to Three Cheers every now and then. But Dylan's original is easily one of the greatest songs of all time, the cover kind of ruins everything that made the song great in the first place and it just becomes a generic tune. You're free to enjoy it though, there are some covers of Dylan's work I think are better than the originals (Ramblin' Jack Elliott's version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues for instance) but Desolation Row is just one of those songs I don't think can be added to with a cover. It's also one of the few songs where I don't like Dylan's updated versions of it (as he likes to switch up styles of his old songs a lot).

I find a lot of people seem to think Bob Dylan is boring though. You could always dance/work out to his more energetic songs.

Also, I should probably mention I just had this conversation with someone like a week ago when they saw my Desolation Row tattoo and asked if I liked the MCR song.
