It's my Life - No Doubt(Talk Talk)
Who do I have to get drunk in order to get "Red Solo Cup" in Rock Band?
More Cover songs that are better than the originals:
Nirvana - Jesus Don't Want Me for a Sunbeam (Originally by The Vaselines)
Pearl Jam - Keep On Rockin In The Free World (Originally done By Neil Young)
Peccatum - For All Those Who Died (As much as the original Bathory song is badass, this version added an additional level to an already awesome track)
Bands I'd love to see as DLC for Rock Band:
Bal Sagoth 
Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu did a full-album cover of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. Their versions of Shadowplay and New Dawn Fades rival the originals, if not surpass them in my eyes.
I also prefer Radiohead's cover of The Headmaster Ritual to the original done by The Smiths.

Despite all my rage, I'm still just Nicolas Cage
Let's go with:
Manfred Mann - Blinded by the Light (Bruce Springsteen, honestly think his original is terrible)
Nirvana - The Man Who Sold the World (David Bowie, original's still great though)
Johnny Cash - Hurt (Nine Inch Nails)
Death - God of Thunder (KISS)
And while I wouldn't say they're better, I do like Pearl Jam's cover of The Who's Love Reign O'er Me, as well as Soundgarden's cover of The Beatles' Come Together.
AFI- Jack the Ripper > Morrissey.. *Waits to get murdered*.. i just prefer it over the original honestly. But i love Morrissey.
The Cure

Well, a relatively recent one:
Adrenaline Mob - Come Undone (original by Duran Duran)
Is it weird that their two best songs are covers? (That and their cover of Black Sabbath's "The Mob Rules")
