Better than...

The Strokes: Royal City - Is This It
The Shins: Of Montreal - Know Your Onion!
Neutral Milk Hotel: Mountain Goats - Two-Headed Boy
Magnetic Fields: Arcade Fire - Born On A Train
OutKast: The Go - Hey Ya!

These covers aren't all actually better than the originals per se, but they are nice alternates. And I do always love the covers. Well, unless it's Mandy Moore and Michael Stipe teaming up to make The Beach Boys' God Only Knows all easy listening adult contemporary. Oh, so profane and wrong! I mean, it was for the movie Saved so I could maybe convince myself that's it's somewhat ironically amusing, but christ, I have to draw the line somewhere.
