What are some remixes/covers that are better than the original?  
This one is, IMO.

Mad World by Gary Jules, even though the original from Tears for Fears is pretty good.

The Five Finger Death Punch cover of Bad Company isn't bad.

I knew someone would say that. Orignal Bad Company takes the carrot cake imo.

For the record, Johnny Cash absolutely rocked the song Hurt written by Trent Reznor, but I wouldn't say that it's better than Trent's version.  They both used the song at parts of their life where it fit them best.  Regardless, I think Hurt is one of the greatest songs i've ever heard.

For sure, I prefer the NIN version myself, i'm a huge NIN fan.  I'm crossing my fingers in hoping that Trent makes a live record of his last tour like he did with And All That Could Have Been, because I wasn't able to catch the last tour, but i've seen and heard songs from Youtube, and I watched the last time they played Just Like You Imagined, it was #$%@'n amazing.

Gonna have to disagree with you guys on that one. I do like his Tainted Love cover better than the original, though.

@Sexy Merc: Dude. You may have just introduced me to my new musical obsession. Listening to her cover of Bad Romance right now. She's insanely talented and the fact that these are live just ups my respect for her abilities that much more.

@The Dark Huntress:  Her Bad Romance cover was too good. I agree with the live performance and that she's way talented. My GF absolutely loves her, and most of her girlfriends too. I got into her a while ago.
 
I love Outkast, but what The Vines did was incredible.
