I see your Jimi Hendrix, and I raise you one SRV.

I know this is not a cover, but everyone should watch this. This is a sound check in 1986 back when he was still using cocaine and drinking heavy. He looks lit in this video, but his playing is so accurate & pure it's like your listening to his album. Probably no other artist I miss more than SRV.

While I'd never say it's better than Black Sabbath's Into The Void, Soundgarden's cover using quotes from Chief Sealth is just as good. And lyrically it seems like an original song.  Plus there's the whole juxtaposition of the outward looking Sabbath version and inward looking SG version.
