    This will probably be debated, but I really like this version. Funny thing, when I was in Jamaica, they actually played the original version quite frequently.

    Even though it’s kind of a cover by the original artist, he added a singer.

    Well sounds to me like pop-in-law got schooled. He gets outta line again, just give him the "Manson Lamps" (crazy eyes) and threaten to break his hip if he ever questions your musical triva prowess again...yep, works every time...that's what I'd do..I meant "I heard" anyway...:eek:

    Brown Sabbath's cover of Fairies Wear Boots is honestly better than Black Sabbath

    Yup, it's all fun and games until somebody gets stabbed in the neck:eek:..like the delivery driver pulls up and brings an oblong box, then you hear really...another guitar???!!! Then I say before I think it through...Really, another dumb question? I mean another rhetorical question?? Yeah, that's when i see them, but more importantly feel them ...and think, uh oh..this sh!t just got real.o_O

    In honor of @11top Kentucky Head Hunters post...I give you this BSC...in case anyones isn't aware of it...the drums and bass are compliments of two of the memebers of the KHH off-spring.
    Oh! By no means are the vocals better the original (Adele is a vocal beast) but overall this cover kills...imho

    Thanks dude...here's one from a few years ago...they did an album of covers that had a lot of good stuff. Being a blues nut, I wouldn't say they do it beter than the man himself, but I do really dig this one...

    I like Big Macs. I like the song War Pigs. But individually, they tend to get stale after a while. Put them together and this is what you get.
