Muse Gets Best Cover Song Evar











 'Muse's cover of Nina Simone's version of 'Feeling Good' has been named the best cover song of all time.

The Devon trio beat the likes of The Beatles' version of 'Twist & Shout'and Johnny Cash's 'Hurt' to the title, after over 15,000 music fans voted online in an NME.COM poll commissioned by SEAT, whose new music show On Track With airs tonight (September 22) on Channel 4.

Conversely, Britney Spears' reworking of 'I Love Rock 'N' Roll' was voted the worst cover song of all time, ahead of Ronan Keating's 'Fairytale Of New York', Take That's version of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and Mark Ronson's 'No One Knows'.

The 10 best cover versions of all time are:

1. Muse - 'Feeling Good'
2. The Beatles - 'Twist & Shout'
3. Johnny Cash - 'Hurt'
4. Jimi Hendrix - 'Hey Joe'
5. Nirvana - 'Where Did You Sleep Last Night'
6. The Clash - 'I Fought The Law'
7. Jeff Buckley - 'Hallelujah'
8. Jimi Hendrix - 'All Along The Watchtower'
9. Marvin Gaye - 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine'
10. The White Stripes - 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself''
