3. Limp Bizkit – “Behind Blue Eyes” (Original by The Who)
Another classic artist trashed by a modern group doing a terrible cover? The exact opposite actually. A relatively unknown track off the album Results May Vary, Limp Bizkit created their own version of The Who classic by not only adding their signature style to it, but ended up giving it an even deeper feeling behind the lyrics. While some may disagree, Fred Durst’s vocals just feel better suited for the lyrics’ story, as opposed to The Who’s Pete Townshend. Some would believe Limp Bizkit to be nothing more than a simple rap rock band, but this cover absolutely proves that there is more to them than originally envisioned.
