Where the Streets Have No Name (U2) vs. By the Way (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Here Comes My Baby (Cat Stevens) vs. I’m a Believer (Monkees)

Band on the Run (Paul McCartney) vs. Jack and Diane (John Mellencamp)

Over the Hills and Far Away (Led Zeppelin) vs. Cottonfields (Beach Boys).  Cottonfields was included because the song is an all-time classic in rock lore- I just happen to like Al Jardine’s lead vocals on this version more than other covers.

Guantanamera (Wyclef Jean) vs. Suspicious Minds (Elvis).  Guantanamera’s spot was originally supposed to go to Killing Me Softly, but this song has aged a little better.
