The following musical artists are best-known for one or more cover songs that far outstrip their own originals commercially and/or artistically, whether they or their fans think so or not. These are in no particular order and may piss you the hell off. I'm not including "interpreter" artists who do almost only covers. Also some of these 'artists' really suck and you don't need to tell me that, mmkay. Add as you wish!
