* In the late '90s, Music/AceOfBase covered Music/{{Bananarama}}'s "Cruel Summer". Said cover has since been mostly forgotten, with the original retaking the throne in most territories.

Added DiffLines:

* R&B singer Mario covered famous OneHitWonder Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" and ended up outperforming it, reaching #4 while the Markie original placed #9. However, the Mario version is almost entirely forgotten today while the original is still very well remembered. It probably has something to do with the Mario cover being very bland compared to the original being a shining example of SoBadItsGood.

** "Yesterday" from ''Music/{{Help}}'' is statistically one of the most covered songs of all time...but seriously can you name ''any'' cover it without consulting TheOtherWiki?

* DHT's 2004 cover of Music/{{Roxette}}'s "Listen to Your Heart", which was [[OneHitWonder their sole international hit]], introduced many younger audiences to the song. By the 2010's, DHT's version had mostly faded from memory, and Roxette's original once again reigned supreme.

* Numerous country singers have covered songs by Music/HankWilliams, and while a few of them have become major hits (e.g. Charley Pride's covers of "You Win Again" and "Honky Tonk Blues" both made it to #1 in 1980), none of them have supplanted the originals in the public consciousness.
** The only one that comes close is George Thorogood's cover of "Move It On Over", which still gets radio play on Classic Rock stations.
