That's tough, I know a few good ones, I'm just not sure if they were better than the original or just equally good.

I have nothing against Roy Orbison, I just like Van Halen's better.

The video is Devo-level weird.

The harmonic solo really ties the song together.

I won’t say it’s better than Etta, but it is easy on the ears.

Not better than the original, but a pretty good stab at it.

Midgets accosting a man in drag. A hunchback. Michael Anthony the Samuri. Alex the Aborigine. Cowboy Eddie. Napoleon Dave. And a 2 minute intro on a 4:30 song. They must have been drunk. All of them.
