Agreed, still my favorite (and assumed all are familiar with the original). Just offering it up in the spirit of this thread as a proxy for EVH as he's mentioned the MTH version (IIRC). 

...

Does Coltrane's version of My Favorite Things count for this thread?

Surprised we’ve not mentioned “Blinded by the Light”. 
Dylan covers are “easy” to find...

t

again I’m on my phone or I’d throw up some links. 

I did that one the last time we had a covers thread. 😉

@Old Joad & @jackson white

when “You Really Got Me” was released it was about as raw a track as anything coming out of the British Invasion at the time. I would call it “transformative”.

We all stand on the shoulders of those who preceded us. 
Im not “knocking” your choices. Just a reminder that the Kinks could Rock the Bandstand”. 
If I wasn’t on my phone I’d link to Warren’s (Produce like a Pro) video on it. It’s worth a “google” and watch.

If I wasn't on my phone😎 i'd say it's true the Kinks rocked it, but VH kicked it in the bum🤘

This is I have to say the best cover I've heard. It gives me goosebumps.

A feat that was even more impressive for me given that before hearing it I would have said that it was one of those songs that was completely untouchable.

Given that he has a voice with all the sonic charm of an elderly vacuum cleaner that hasn't had it's bag emptied or it's filters cleaned since 1950 , it must be hard to not improve one of his songs.
