top 5 authorized remixes
Fatboy Slim remix
Norman Cook did the impossible. He took a horrible original recording and transformed it into one of the best damn big beat party records in history. In fact, it's so good that the Beastie Boys actually used the remix instead of the original in the "Body Movin'" music video.
Puff Daddy featuring Lil' Kim, The Lox, and Notorious B.I.G.
"It's All About The Benjamins"
Again, another case of a horrible original recording getting a killer makeover, this time with the help of Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Rob Zombie.
"The Kids Aren't Alright"
The Wiseguys remix
Imagine if the original fast tempo recording of "The Kids Aren't Alright" got stoned. What you would have then is the Wiseguys remix of the record – a slacker masterpiece.
Limp Bizkit warped George Michael's original pop recording of "Faith" into a testosterone-driven hard rock anthem. Everlast, in turn, warps Limp Bizkit's cover into funky old school shit, eschewing the deafening Fred Durst chorus for something mellower.
"Freak On A Leash"
Butch Vig remix
Best known as the producer of Nirvana's Nevermind and the drummer of Garbage, Vig's stab at musical remodeling is no less a success, dousing the original Korn recording in Blade Runner for a refreshingly weird end product.
"(You Drive Me) Crazy"
