Top 50 Greatest Rock/Metal Covers

So, after some research, here comes the list of Top 50 covers of Rock/Metal. I restricted this list to just 50 as I found it extremely difficult to make a list of 100 such songs. I could find many such lists in the internet with 100+ covers, but I found most of the songs are less popular. While compiling this list, I gathered a lot of knowledge about the original works of all those songs which soothes our heart and mind now and then. Like, I never knew that The Man Who Sold the World by Nirvana is actually a cover of David Bowie. Anyways, both the songs are equally great. So, here is my list of 50 Greatest Covers of all time in Rock & Metal. Again, the numbers beside each song carries no meaning.
