Ahhh...80's synth pop. Doesn't get much better.

311 gives the song a cool reggae vibe, but the original is more pop rock. Both versions are pretty awesome.

Dylan's original is raw and simple, but Adele makes it silky and powerful.

Blinded By the Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band

Bruce Springsteen, in 1973

The Earth Band made this song a hit, but Springsteen penned it four years earlier. His version is also a little more clear with the lyrics of the chorus...*hint* they're saying deuce.

Brand New Cadillac - The Clash

This song has been covered by tons of artists, but Vince Taylor started it all in '59 with this hit.

Mad World - Gary Jules

Aaaaaaannd more 80's synth. Gary's version was made popular by the movie Donnie Darko, but the original song done by the Brits sounds a little less depressing.

I Fought the Law - Green Day

The Crickets, in 1960

Personally, my favorite version of this song is done by The Clash. Rock stars have been fighting the law ever since this song came out.
