Magazine: QUIET RIOT, SLAYER, GUNS N' ROSES Songs Among Top Rock Covers Of All Time

Guitar One magazine has compiled a list of the 10 best covers of rock songs in their July 2004 issue. Commented the magazine's editors, "Assembling a list of the 10 best covers of rock songs has to be at the very top of its own list: the list of all-time thankless tasks. Okay, yeah, it was our idea — but still, you could pick a classic artist, say, Hendrix or Dylan, and assemble 10 covers of songs by those artists alone. Heck, everyone who takes it upon himself t compile something like this (try it!) will come up with an entirely different list. (Note: We decided not to include blues songs – classics like LED ZEP's 'You Shook Me', CREAM's 'Crossroads',” and THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND's 'Statesboro Blues' – simply because they’re so frequently covered.)"

Top 10 Best Covers of Rock Songs (as chosen by Guitar One magazine):

01. QUIET RIOT - "Cum on Feel the Noize"
02. SYSTEM OF A DOWN – "Snowblind"
03. SLAYER – "Born to Be Wild"
04. GUNS N' ROSES – "Knockin' on Heaven’s Door"
05. JIMI HENDRIX – "Star Spangled Banner"
06. THE BYRDS – "My Back Pages"
07. HUSKER DU – "Eight Miles High"
08. STEVIE RAY VAUGHN – "Little Wing"
09. NIRVANA – "Love Buzz"
10. VAN HALEN – "You Really Got Me"
