Michael Jackson DEFINITELY already sucked it. This might not technically count as a cover but it still wipes the floor with the original version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcTeZuXvA9A

:lulz: I was gonna post that one but IMO he owned that song to the point where his version is now the "original". Because in keeping with the theme of my posts ITT, Bob Dylan can DEFINITELY suck it.

I'd almost put his live version of "Like a Rolling Stone" there as well, but I fucking LOVE the B3 on Dylan's version.
