    Personally, I couldn't pick one. Both convey something that means a lot to each musician, and both have so much feeling to them. Trent's original is an amazing song, and I love what Johnny was able to do with his cover.

    I actually have that Possessed record in my collection. I used to put it on to scare this ultra religious roommate that I had back when I was in college.

    As for me, I find myself hard pressed to consider a cover to be better than an original. In the case of an amazing cover, the artist is able to make it into their own song, and kinda becomes a completely new entity in my books.

    Now, as for songs that I consider to be amazing, I can only think of one at the moment (mainly because I have so much music in my collection that it's hard to even mentally process it all at the moment). This one is one that was released this year.

    Mindless Self Indulgence - The Logical Song - Even since I was a kid, I was in love with Supertramp's "The Logical Song." Mindless Self Indulgence is a band that I fell in love with back in 1999 when I saw them live for my first time, and to hear them totally go nuts with this song is a very fun thing... at least I think so.

    Anyone ever have it happen to them when you watch shows like [insert country]'s Got Talent, The X-Factor, or The Voice and people come on and sing a song you couldn't tolerate before and then you end up loving that song? This cover of LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It and this cover of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream did that for me.
