A specific form of Older Than They Think, in which the Cover Version of a song becomes so iconic that people forget it was a cover at all. The cover becomes the definitive version of the song, while the original fades into obscurity to the point where the cover artist may be incorrectly credited for writing it. To a certain extent, this is generational — if you hear a song before the cover is even recorded, you're less likely to be confused. (It doesn't count if the new version is in a different language.)
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })This can become a Fandom-Enraging Misconception for fans of the original artist.
Nowadays, "covers" are used to describe any band performing a not-originally-written song. However, when bands writing all their own songs was a less common practice, covering referred specifically to doing a version of a song in a style similar to that of another artist.
The "Weird Al" Effect is this taken Up to Eleven, in which an entirely revised and rewritten version of a song by a different artist becomes more prominent than the original. Somewhat related is Breakaway Pop Hit, where an iconic song (or cover) composed specifically for a film overshadows its film. Compare Sampled Up and Eclipsed by the Remix, and contrast with First and Foremost. See also Revival by Commercialization and Misattributed Song.
If you were thinking of the other meaning of "covers," you might be looking for Modesty Bedsheet. Also not related to any Cover Tropes, nor to Revealing Cover Up.

Weird version: in Brazil, the success of The Elite Squad brought much attention to the opening theme, a 90's song called "Rap das Armas". Yet somehow people mostly played a cover which was not in the film (which even was remixed by European DJs and became a hit in the Netherlands and Scandinavia).

An alarming number of people think "Proud Mary" is a song by Tina Turner rather than original band Creedence Clearwater Revival, from their album Bayou Country. It doesn't help much that John Fogerty has basically said she can keep it (his oily manager screwed him out the rights to all of Creedence's music, so his lack of attachment to the song is understandable). Happily, the combination of Fogerty eventually regaining the royalties from his work with CCR and the band becoming Vindicated by History means that even if it isn't quite First and Foremost, the original recording of "Proud Mary" is certainly not forgotten, either.
Creedence themselves, meanwhile, did covers of the obscure blues numbers "Midnight Special" and "Suzie Q" that are far better known than the source songs.

And a later generation found the song due to it being featured in a third-season episode of Buffythe Vampire Slayer, performed by British group The Sundays.

"Thank You For Being You" is best known for its appearance on not one, but two Mister Rogers' Neighborhood tribute albums: 2005's Songs From The Neighborhood, which featured Amy Grant, BJ Thomas, Donna Summer and others, and 2019's Thank You, Mister Rogers: Music & Memories, which had among its roster Kellie Pickler, Vanessa Williams and Tom Bergeron. The song was originally written for the Canadian-produced, PBS Kids-aired series The Noddy Shop as the song the puppets sang to show Noah how much they loved him in the season 1 finale, "Noah's Leaving". Aside from the Title Drop, only two verses from the original song are kept in the Mister Rogers version ("Words could never measure, a gift would be too small/But more than any treasure, we love you most of all"). Interestingly enough, Dennis Scott also wrote the original Noddy Shop version of the song.

"Stars", which younger audiences (specifically Bojack Horseman fans, thanks to its usage in the season 3 finale) associate with Nina Simone, was originally written and performed by Janis Ian (no, not that one).

Most people seem to associate the song "Only Hope" with A Walk to Remember where Mandy Moore sings it, and some even credit her as writing it. Even those who notice that the song was written by a guy named Jonathan Foreman generally don't know that Jon Foreman is the lead singer of Switchfoot, the band which first performed the song.

If you type "Hot Cherie" in the search box for Google or YouTube, you will inevitably find the Hardline song first. This was a cover of a song by Streetheart. The song was covered by Danny Spanos as well, which is also more popular than Streetheart's version, but still not as popular as Hardline's.

"Skinnamarink" is a traditional children's song that's best known for its' cover by Canadian children's group Sharon, Lois and Bram. The connection between the song and the group was so strong that their second TV show, as well as a skating rink in Canada, were both named after the song.

Most people aren't aware that the Candy Mountain song from Charlie the Unicorn is actually to the tune of a song called "Clarinet Polka" that dates back all the way to the 19th century.

"Walking in the Air" was first performed by Peter Auty in the movie adaptation of The Snowman. A few years later, Aled Jones shot to fame with a cover of the song, which became the definitive version. Later still, Nightwish covered it for their album Oceanborn, causing many Nightwish fans to believe that their version was the original.

Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York live album is also subject to this, as many people are apparently unaware that many of the songs are covers of anything from David Bowie tunes to old Christian standards... despite the fact that Kurt Cobain says so on the album itself.
"Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam"; Kurt Cobain jokingly introduces it a "rendition of an old Christian song, I think [...] but we do it the Vaselines way". It's not. It's an original song by the Vaselines that parodies an old Christian song called "I'll Be a Sunbeam".
Nirvana also covered up Devo's "Turn Around" - the fact that the original was a rare b-side to begin with probably doesn't help (although it's available on iTunes now).
Nirvana were prone to covering a lot of songs by the same artist. Examples include The Wipers' "Return of the Rat" and "D-7" as well as The Vaselines' "Molly's Lips", "Son of a Gun" (both available on Incesticide, and the above mentioned "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam". In an interesting take, Nirvana covered folk songs most famously played by Lead Belly but changed the titles to match the chorus ("In The Pines" became "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" and "He Never Said A Mumbling Word" became "They Hung Him On A Cross"). Nirvana's first single was also a cover being the song "Love Buzz" originally performed by Shocking Blue in 1969.

"Nothing Compares 2 U", as made famous by Sinéad O'Connor, was originally written by Prince for his band "The Family". According to Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, Prince was actually planning to remake the original version with a female singer before O'Connor released her version, which became one of the biggest hits of The '90s.

"It's In Every One Of Us" was originally written and recorded by David Pomeranz in 1975, but it never truly took off until it appeared on John Denver and The Muppets' A Christmas Together album four years later. It's since been covered by Clay Aiken, Dayna Manning, Dennis DeYoung, and the cast of the TV edition of Fame, among others; it was also featured in the musical Time (for which Pomeranz is credited for contributing additional music in the otherwise Dave Clark Five-composed score), and an instrumental version appeared on the Big soundtrack. An odd case, as the Muppets/Denver version is a Chorus Only Single Stanza Song while nearly every other cover is of the full version.

The Simpsons provides an instrumental example with the leitmotif for Sideshow Bob. Although Bob did not have any theme music in his first few appearances, the episode "Cape Feare" provided him with a slightly altered version of the main theme of Cape Fear as part of the episode's parody of the iconic film. The show continued to use the music in most of Bob's subsequent appearances. Over time, as The Simpsons continued to stay in the spotlight while Cape Fear faded into obscurity, many younger fans would know the song only as "Sideshow Bob's theme", not realizing that it was a homage to an older piece.

Neil Diamond started out as a songwriter so a lot of his music has been recorded by other singers:
"Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" has been covered numerous times, but was only covered up at the release of Pulp Fiction, which featured Urge Overkill's rendition. Still, Neil Diamond's original is not entirely forgotten.
The first and definitive version of "I'm A Believer" was released by The Monkees (Diamond actually recorded his own version first but it wasn't released until later). The same was the case for three other Monkees hits: "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)", "Love to Love" and "A little Bit Me, A Little Bit You". "I'm a Believer" has since been covered by Smash Mouth (for the movie Shrek, giving the song a significant Revival by Commercialization in the process) and Weezer.
"Red Red Wine" first covered by Tony Tribe and then in The '80s by UB40, with UB40's version regaining popularity nearly 20 years after it was released. Neil Diamond later recorded a new version inspired by UB40's cover.
"Solitary Man" was Diamond's first hit (#55 pop) in 1966. It's been covered by Jay and the Americans, Chris Isaak, T.G. Sheppard (#14 country, #100 pop in 1976), Johnny Cash, and H.I.M.

"Mah Na Mah Na" was first heard in an Italian soft-core porn film titled "Sweden, Heaven And Hell", performed by a band called Marc 4 (actually session musicians from the Italian public service broadaster's orcherstra) under the title "Hooray for the Swedish Sauna". It gained fame when it was performed on Sesame Street and especially The Muppet Show. Arguably, the later Muppet Show version covered up the Sesame Street version of the skit, which was also performed by Jim Henson, but as a canonically separate character (Bip Bippadotta rather than Mahna Mahna).

"Rock Around the Clock", forever associated with Bill Haley & His Comets, was not recorded by them first. That honor went to Sonny Dae and his Knights, whose version was released in early 1954. While Haley and his group did perform it live as early as 1953, their producer at their then-label Essex refused to record the song, forcing them to wait until they signed with Decca Records in 1954 to record it (though rumors of a 1953 demo persist despite denials by Haley and his bandmates).

"Why Don't You Do Right?" was not created for Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It dates back to 1936, with a famous version by Peggy Lee dating to 1950.

Grand Theft Auto: the "Master Sounds" radio station from San Andreas is apparently a conscious attempt by the developers to reverse this trend — it plays only songs which later became vastly more famous when they were covered or sampled by more popular artists.

The song "Stay" by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, although a top-charting record and featured in Dirty Dancing, is often better known nowadays for the (considerably longer) Jackson Browne cover. To confuse the issue, "The Load Out", which segues into the cover of "Stay", actually was written by Jackson Browne, but they're played together so often that people don't even realized they're technically two separate songs.

Carl Orff's Carmina Burana is an interesting case which could arguably be considered this. The collection of 12th century poems, songs, and stories which Orff arranged as a symphonic cantata had little in the way of musical notation, and the notation which was used was so old that modern musical scholars aren't certain just how they would have been performed. As a result, Orff was free to arrange the music however he liked, and while he did make some attempt to work out the original arrangements, for the most part the 1936 work was an entirely original score.

"One (Is The Loneliest Number)" was made famous by Three Dog Night, but was written and first recorded by Harry Nilsson. Aimee Mann's later cover for the Magnolia soundtrack is notable for hewing much closer to Nilsson's arrangement of the song than the Three Dog Night version.
Three Dog Night had a penchant for recording definitive versions of other people's songs.

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" was written and performed by John Denver, but it didn't become famous until it was covered by Peter, Paul and Mary; Chantal Kreviazuk also recorded a modestly popular version (featured on the Armageddon soundtrack).

Whitesnake actually covered themselves with the song "Here I Go Again." They released the original as a European-only single in 1982 and it peaked at #34 in the UK. In 1987, at the urging of their record label, they re-recorded a more polished and up-tempo version of the song and put it out as a single again. This "cover version" shot to #9 in the UK and #1 in the United States, and became the version that everyone knows and radio stations still play - the original has been largely forgotten by everyone but hardcore Whitesnake fans.

"How Do I Live" is a weird case. When it was first written for the movie Con Air, composer Diane Warren initially gave it to LeAnn Rimes (15 at the time) and her version was poised to be the soundtrack's lead single. But the filmmakers insisted that Rimes was "too poppy" to sell a song about heartbreak, and they had the song rerecorded with another country singer, Trisha Yearwood (whose version was featured in the movie), while the song's creative team rushed Rimes' version to radio. Both versions became hits at the same time, however Yearwood's version was eventually withdrawn from radio after about a year because the execs thought it would eat her album sales. Rimes' version, however, remains one of her biggest hits, with one of the longest chart runs in music history.

Written by Diane Warren, Edwin McCain's version of "I Could Not Ask For More" released in 1999 to significant radio play, but it has been almost completely forgotten in the wake of the country cover, released the very next year, by Sara Evans. She even took the song to a higher position on the Billboard Hot 100 than he did, and McCain is today remembered pretty much only for his first hit "I'll Be."

"La Bamba", made famous by Ritchie Valens, was originally a Mexican (more precisely, Veracruz) wedding dance song, and its first extant recording (by "El Jarocho" - Alvaro Hernández Ortiz) predates Valens' by almost 20 years. The video of the Los Lobos cover of "La Bamba" (which they in turn did for the soundtrack to the Ritchie Valens bio-pic) ends with the band starting to play the traditional song on acoustic guitars. It's kinda nifty.

After hearing Vitas's performance of "Il Dulce Suono", a listener declared that she didn't like his rendition of the opera from The Fifth Element and that you can't perform Sarah Brightman's music without screwing it up. (A common fan mistake: Brightman was not in The Fifth Element.) The music piece comes from the opera Lucia de Lammermoor, which debuted in 1835.

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow", from The Wizard of Oz is not a perfect example. The famous version by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole is easily the most well-known arrangement aside from the version done for the movie (by Judy Garland). If you see someone singing / playing that song nowadays, there's a 50% chance that it's usually done in the style of the Kamakawiwo'ole arrangement, i.e. done with a guitar (or a ukulele) and sung softly with "ooooh's" in it (and/or mashed up with "What A Wonderful World").

Some famous works by Johann Sebastian Bach are usually known only by their covers by other composers and performers.
The Air on the G String is actually the Air from Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major. Violinist August Wilhelmj transposed and rewrote the Air in C Major in order to play it solely on the G string of the violin. Most recordings now list the work as the Air on the G String, even if the recording is of the original Orchestral Suite version.

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring is among Bach's most famous works. What many people don't know is that the lyrics are not translated from Bach's originals. That's right, originals. The melody for Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring actually comes from the sixth and tenth movements of the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life). The lyrics to Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring were actually written by Robert Bridges, who based his lyrics on the same hymn that Bach based the originals on. The piano transcription of the melody, by Myra Hess, also eclipses Bach's originals in mainstream fame. To top all this off, the melodies of the two original movements in question are themselves arrangements of a Lutheran chorale which Bach himself Covered Up.

Elvis Costello's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding?" was written and first performed by Costello's producer, Nick Lowe, while part of the band Brinsley Schwarz.
And, ironically, most of the money that Nick's made from music came neither from his solo career, nor from Elvis' hit, but from a lesser-known cover of the song by the relatively-obscure Curtis Stigers...because it happened to be on the soundtrack to The Bodyguard.

"I Pray for You" by Big & Rich is a curious example. Before this version, it was recorded on solo albums by Big & Rich's members, Big Kenny and John Rich (Rich's version was even a single). However, neither version was commercially available until after Big & Rich's version.

"China Girl" is best known for David Bowie's 1983 hit version from Let's Dance, but it was first performed by Iggy Pop (and co-written with Bowie) in 1977 on his album The Idiot. The covering up was ultimately pretty beneficial to the original artist, which may have been the point: Iggy Pop was nearing bankruptcy at the time, and receiving substantial royalties for the Bowie version helped him out financially.

"Cat's Eye" by Anri is the opening song from the anime series Cat's Eye from 1983. Younger people may be more familiar with the cover from 2000 by E-Rotic, with the lyrics rewritten in English, especially because this cover was included in several BEMANI games (including Dance Dance Revolution 4th Mix Plus and 5th Mix, Dance Maniax 2nd Mix, and Dance Dance Revolution Music Fit). Likewise, several other popular DDR songs are translated cover versions of J-Pop songs, such as Bambee's "17" and Judy Crystal's "God of Romance (Romansu no Kamisama)".

Five of the songs on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack were written and recorded by Jonathan Davis of Korn. Due to contract troubles, all five songs were covered for the official soundtrack, by the likes of Wayne Static, David Draiman, Marilyn Manson, Chester Bennington and Jay Gordon. Unless you've seen the movie (especially the music videos included as extras), most people think that the covers are in fact the original versions of the songs. And considering how hard it is to get a hold of the original versions, since they were never officially released, this doesn't look like it will change any time soon.

"Akaneiro" by John Zeroness is a cover of the song he wrote for Tsukiuta's September representative Yoru, "Koganeiro". It fixes the original's Lyrical Dissonance, as well as changing the title in a way that might allude to Ship Tease between Yoru and his partner, August representative You.

Fear Factory:
"Dog Day Sunrise" was not originally a song created by the band for their Demanufacture album. It was originally a song by Industrial Metal band Head of David. Obsolete bonus track "0~0" also counts as it was originally made by another obscure band known as "Wiseblood".
Speaking of Obsolete, the album features a cover of Gary Numan's iconic song "Cars". The cover featured Numan himself on it in a duet with frontman Burton C. Bell. However, the original is the only song Numan is really known for and is considered a One-Hit Wonder. The Fear Factory cover was responsible for breaking the band into the mainstream and is one of their most iconic songs along with "Replica", "Demanufacture", and "Linchpin". It is also the version that is often used in commercials and video game soundtracks, notably fitting in Test Drive 5 and Gran Turismo 2.

The theme tune to Star Fleet (a Japanese 1980s sci-fi TV show originally called 'X-Bomber' and redubbed for UK transmission with a new theme song) was Covered Up when Brian May of Queen recorded it with some friends, including Eddie Van Halen and released as a mini-album called "Star Fleet Project". Consequently it's often thought that Brian May wrote the song, despite him stating clearly on the sleevenotes to the record that it was originally by Paul Bliss.

Martina McBride:
"My Baby Loves Me" was released in Canada by Patricia Conroy one year prior to Martina's version.
"Safe in the Arms of Love". Originally recorded by Gail Davies' side project Wild Choir in 1986, followed by Baillie & the Boys in 1989 and Kennedy Rosenote Mary Ann Kennedy and Pam Rose, who wrote the song with Pat Bunch in 1994. Then in 1995, Martina McBride released a successful version in the US, while Michelle Wright did likewise in Canada.
"Swingin' Doors" was originally released by Molly & the Heymakers in 1992.

Thanks to The Wire, the Blind Boys of Alabama's version of "Way Down in the Hole" is now at least as famous as the Waits original... And it might even be better.

"I Want You to Want Me", originally by Cheap Trick, has been covered many times, but the one that probably qualifies for this the most would be Dwight Yoakam's country version, due to the genre change working so well that someone who heard Yoakam's version first would be hard-pressed to believe that it was a rock song first.

The main gameplay theme in Gyruss may sound pretty cool, but you may be surprised to know that it's an electronic rendition of a classical composition called "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach (and classical music typically isn't thought of as "cool"...). And wouldn't you know it, musicologists are now predominantly of the opinion that even this wasn't an original composition, but Bach's transcription from a version for string instrument by an unknown author. The "Toccata and Fugue" (well, the toccata part, anyway) is the most well known organ piece out there, and has been appropriated in this way ever since cinemas got organs.

"Sailing" is probably best known to younger generations as an *NSYNC song. Older generations (plus Yacht Rock addicts) are more likely to remember the 1980 original, which gave its writer and performer Christopher Cross a US #1 hit and three Grammy Awards (plus a leg up on a fourth Grammy). Here's a performance in 1999 of the song featuring Cross and the boys.

Spoon's "Don't You Evah," the second single from Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, is a cover of "Don't You Ever" by The Natural History, which appeared on an album that came out several months after Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga note the Natural History's third album was recorded in 2004, but Executive Meddling held the release back until 2007, two years after the group themselves broke up. Spoon were kind enough to include the original on the EP single release of "Don't You Evah", however.

Homestuck has an extensive library of songs and a lot of leitmotifs, so this has happened a few times.
The most obvious example is Black, which most don't realise is actually a cover of Liquid Negrocity.
More confusingly, for the album Alternia there was a bonus song included called AlterniaBound. Later, on an album named AlterniaBound, this song was covered as Alternia, a song which went on to become much, much more famous than the original.
The track "MeGaLoVania" was Toby Fox's self-cover of a song of the same name (sans the other 4 capitals) from The Halloween Hack. As Homestuck was wildly popular at the time and Toby's music for it then more widely known than his previous notoriety in the EarthBound community, the association stuck. Eventually, it too was covered by its use in Undertale, with the association going to Sans more than the character's own theme.

The Space Jam soundtrack features examples from both ends: Seal covered up "Fly Like An Eagle" (Steve Miller Band; still the better-known version today, at least in North America), while All For One's "I Turn To You" only became well-known after a version by Christina Aguilera (which is still more associated with her than them).

"EZ DO DANCE" is much better known as Prizmmy's theme for Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live than as TRF's 1993 hit. Eventually both versions got covered up by King of Prism's versions, with newer audiences considering it to be the spinoff's own theme rather than a Call-Back to its inspiration.

"The Candy Man" was originally performed by Aubrey Woods in the film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, but for a time the song was more famous for Sammy Davis Jr.'s cover. Davis actually could have sung the song in the film - he expressed interest in the role of the candy store owner, but was turned down. The original version became better known than the Davis' cover as time went on because changing musical tastes meant the film continued to be broadcast long after Davis' version stopped receiving airplay.

One of James Taylor's best hits, "Handyman", released in 1977, was originally written by singer Jimmy Jones and songwriter Otis Blackwell back in 1959. He got two number one hits off of covers, as well: "You've Got a Friend" (originally by Carole King) and "How Sweet it is (To Be Loved By You)" (originally by Marvin Gaye.)

"Time Is on My Side" wasn't composed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It was composed by Jerry Ragovoy in 1963 as an instrumental number for jazz trombonist Kai Winding (who had recent success with his cover of "More", the theme from Mondo Cane); the lyrics were added by Jimmy Norman for a cover by Irma Thomas in early 1964, which formed the basis of The Rolling Stones' version.

When people think of the song "How Soon Is Now?", they're more likely nowadays to think of the theme song to Charmed, which was performed by Love Spit Love. The original version is by The Smiths, originally released as a B-side to their 1984 single "William, It Was Really Nothing" and later featured on their compilation album Hatful of Hollow and on US, Canadian, Australian, and Warner UK editions of the group's second album Meat Is Murder. Love Spit Love's cover was recorded specifically for Charmed. Nowadays, while Charmed is still a classic, "How Soon Is Now?" Is now best remembered as by the Smiths.

Everybody and their uncle have probably heard Josh Groban singing "You Raise Me Up" (or if you're from Britain or Ireland, Westlife). Probably far fewer know that it was composed and performed by the Irish-Norwegian duo Secret Garden.
And the tune is a reworking of the Irish classic "Danny Boy" (or the Londonderry Air, for those Irish who don't care for those lyrics.)

"It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" is one of Boyz II Men's signature tunes. Few of the group's fans would know of the 1975 original by G.C. Cameron. And nearly all of them only because of the song's presence on the Cooley High soundtrack.

"This Is Halloween," the song from The Nightmare Before Christmas, was written by Danny Elfman, not (as several lyrics websites seem to think) Marilyn Manson.
"This Ole House" was originally made by Stuart Hamblen, but in Sweden the Swedish-language cover "Trettifyran," performed by Per Myrberg, is vastly more famous.
