Top 13 Cover Songs

Today’s “13” list is a list of my top 13 favorite cover songs.

As much as I like a lot of their songs, I did not include any songs by the band Me First and Gimme Gimmes on this list because cover songs is all they do and I thought I would limit this list to bands that aren’t considered cover bands.

Also, I’m sure there are a lot of songs missing from this list that I’m not thinking of right now.

Anyway, here they are, listed in alphabetical order:

  1. Amazing Grace – Dropkick Murphys (traditional song)
  2. Because the Night – 10,000 Maniacs (originally performed by Patti Smith, co-writtten by Bruce Springsteen)
  3. Fairytale of New York – No Use For a Name (originally performed by The Pogues)
  4. It’s a Long Way to the Top if You Wanna Rock n Roll – Dropkick Murphys (originally performed by AC/DC)
  5. Living After Midnight – The Donnas (originally performed by Judas Priest)
  6. Ring of Fire – Social Distortion (originally performed by Johnny Cash)
  7. Sonic Reducer – Pearl Jam (originally performed by The Dead Boys)
  8. Stay With Me – Hudson Falcons (originally performed by The Dictators)
  9. Symptom of the Universe – Helmet (originally performed by Black Sabbath)
  10. The Badge – Pantera (originally performed by Poison Idea)
  11. Tuesday’s Gone – Metallica (originally performed by Lynyrd Skynyrd)
  12. Under My Thumb – Social Distortion (originally performed by The Rolling Stones)
  13. Wendy – Descendents (originally performed by The Beach Boys)
