Amazing !
The one by Shinedown is awesome but this one is alright
Megh
Originals better bit this is good
This is... Ok I guess
I'm a BIG fan of covers of they're done correctly and this one is just decent...
It's so f**king simple it becomes complicated I don't know why.
I agree 100%beautifu l nightmare,an d i am not really a fan of covers.
I love this song brings back good friends and long drinkin nites. Im a follower just here for music. Read my profile.
Greatest cover ever. Hands down.
This song reminds me of someone who was special to me ♡♥♡♥ D ♡♥♡♥
Nice!!!
I'm not big on covers,but this rocks.

I love their cover!!! Kickass over others!
I miss music like this!

Love this cover! Very impressed!
Cool. Song.
Wow, never heard this before. It' no Skynard but love Chino's voice during the chorus!
no doubt my fav song!
mulletcar
This is the best cover of Simple Man, Shinedown can kiss my a**
Might as well be Chino singing over a karaoke track of the song, this doing has been to extensively covered.
chrsroc
Not better than the original, but I'd say probably the best cover.
Beautiful cover, can't decide if its better than the origional--c u t t i n it close.

What a Great remake
<3
U know another band sang this band please follow me
Deftones r all up into everything now a days..kickin a** & takin names!! Whoa!
chrsroc
This is the best cover of this song.
I'm pretty sure the deftones can do any song and make it better than the original. The deftones can do no wrong
I love it when the Deftones do a cover!
This is a great remake! I think they sound great and screw tge haters!
blatantly_ob s c u r e
why all the criticism? this isn't a bad cover, they actually did a good job. much better, dare i say, than most of their critics could do...
netstat4
Not a bad cover, and not a bad song, but it gets old when you've heard five different versions of it over and over and over...
Great vocal take..... makes this worth a listen. Guitars sound great but are almost too perfect.
booooooo.
I like it, but would like to see someone with some talent really strip it down to straight acoustic. Don't see the Deftones doing that though.
@veedubbayou c h i c k take out the and then you'd be right
love this. but the original is so much better.
I liked this song enough at first, but I gotta tell you. It gets old fast. I'm not gonna say it's a bad song, but by now I just hate all versions of it.
This cover is the SH*T!! Love it. Perfect combination.
Doesn't this remind you of Lynard Skynard band? Kinda to me...
asheron049
This is an awesome cover, which is a rarity but the Deftones never dissapoint. The vocals are almost ghostly.
chrsroc
skynyrd version is the drinking one this version seems like the high version
