Bullshit. The vocals ruined it.

I'm going to say the Velvet Revolver cover of Pink Floyd's "Money". It was for the 2003 remake of The Italian Job. While it isn't as good a film that one song stands out for me as being one of the best things in the entire film.

Oh, and "Mad World" by Gary Jules. When I think of that song I think of that version over the original, so that just goes to show how well done it is.

Honestly I never really got into the cover by Gary Jules it sounds little depressing compared to original by Tears and Fears.

Turn the Page - Metallica
Hurt - Johnny Cash

Always found it kinda strange that one of Johnny Cash's last songs was a cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt." He does it better than Trent Reznor though.
