    Best Version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"

    I think Knockin' on Heaven's Door is one of the finest songs ever written. One of the hallmarks of a great song is the ability for the song to be played in many genres. Such is the case with this song. There are three excellent versions recorded that I am aware of. Pick your favorite:



    I used to be cool. Now... I secretly listen to Abba in my car.

    Not Bob Dylan. Dude could write the **** out of a song, but listening to him sing is like being at the Dentist office.

    And listening to Axl isn't? Neither one of these would get my vote for vocalist of the year.

    How is this even a contest? There is one acceptable version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," and it's the original.
