    Very subjective and opinions are like...
    belly buttons, everybody has one.

    But what three songs do you think should never be covered, for whatever reason? Any genre, any era, mix and match.

    Baba O'Riley - The Who

    Sympathy For The Devil - Rolling Stones

    Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin

    Saturday Night, Bay City Rollers

    That song should never be mentioned. Unless, of course, you mention it for said purpose of not mentioning it.

    I can't see anybody giving justice to RESPECT by Aretha Franklin.

    Patsy Cline's Crazy should not be covered, unless you're Martina McBride or LeAnn Rimes. Oh yeah, Willie can sing it too.

    my first thought was "Won't Get Fooled Again"...The Who

    honorable mention for "Billion Dollar Babies"...Alice Cooper

    third place: "Time"...Pink Floyd

    I was going to say "Close to the Edge", by Yes,

    then I realized, that no other band, has the skills to cover it. ;)

    Feel Like Making Love, only a retard did cover it. I don't know how anybody involved in that abomination did not feel honor bound to kill themselves for the abortion they polluted the airwaves with.

    Actually, Wrathchild America covered this one in 1989 and kept it faithful to the original.

    But generally any Pink Floyd song performed by a cover band is a guaranteed floor clearer...

    I rather liked the Vandals version.

    The Ramones covered this one and it rocked.
