Cover vs. Original

Knockin' on Heaven's Door


In this case the decision is quite difficult for me. On the one hand so many bands covered this great song, but Guns 'n' Roses created the best cover version. On the other hand the original version by Bob Dylan fits in my opinion better to this song.
So finally my winner here is Bob Dylan.

Guns 'n' Roses
1991

I've heard several version,s of this song and though GNR's is probably my favorite, Eric Clapton doe's a good job too.

Actually, I like Warren Zevon's version the best, since when he recorded it he was literally knocking.
