It depends.
Remixes are amazing if done well, but nothing beats an original. [usually]

Usually the original is better, but there are a few exceptions:

Smooth Criminal- Alien Ant Farm (original by Michael Jackson)
Hurt- Johnny Cash (Originally Nine Inch Nails)
Dazed and Confused- Led Zeppelin (originally by Jake Holmes)
Knockin' on Heaven's Door- Guns 'n' Roses (Originally by Bob Dylan)

Techno remixes are good, Worst remix i heard was Brittney Spears - I love rock n roll. What a way to ruin a song >_>

I like most remakes. But i hreally don't like how the counrty artists are remaking today's pop music. It sounds really bad.

LONG LIVE DIO!!! Kills-watch who? Nah Dio's was better, as for covors....they can only be made better if the original was kinda fruity say Smooth Criminal and or Darling Nikki. The covers for those songs by Alien Ant Farm and the Foo Fighters were great even better than the originals.
