Bob Dylan Turns 70: Celebrate With 70 Dylan Covers

Bob Dylan turns 70 today, but something tells us he's probably not sitting around listening to "Forever Young" on repeat.

What can be said about a man whose legacy will be as the poet laureate of a generation? Simply put, Dylan is an icon.

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941, his career spans humble beginnings in Duluth, Minn., an evolution through emulating his idol Woodie Guthrie, the historic "Dylan Goes Electric" set at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival and on through his "Never Ending Tour."

As an artist so often replicated but never duplicated, Dylan's catalogue will certainly win the hearts of many for years to come. To celebrate more than five decades of timeless Dylan tunes, here are 70 cover tracks of some Dylan classics.
