I found a random cover by Nick Cave and Enya redoing Blue Oyster Cult's (Don't Fear) The Reaper. I like it. It is good in a different kind of way. It sounds a lot heavier and more goth influenced. You decide whether you like it.

Now THAT was an interesting cover, though Enya sounded a little too Amy Lee for me...shame as I usually like Enya so much. Still I enjoyed that.

I like very much the covers, Withion Temptation made!
Especially "In Power We Entrust The Love Advocated" (originally, it`s of "Dead Can Dance", if i don`t mistake).

Also Closterkeller`s cover of A-HA`s "Minor Earth, Major Sky".

And also Closterkeller`s cover of Ozzy Osbourn`s "No More Tears".

Two Words: Limp Bizkit

Five More Words: The Who's 'Behind Blue Eyes'

One More Word: TRAVESTY

It's the only time I think I'e ever actually tried to rip my own ears off. Now I have no problem of him liking the Who, but MY GOD, what was the pile of trash he called a song? It had none of the original emotion to it, he cut out the best part of the original, and in its place he had that horrible techno voice crap. Damn, I just can't get over it. But more than Fred Durst, I feel the uncontrollably strong urge to lash out at the people who say his was better than the original. I think you really have to be retarded to think that.

Now if you want an interesting story about covers, the UK Christmas number one battle should be right up your ally

I used to like covers until I heard "Beat It", originally by Michael Jackson, emo-ed up by Fall Out Boy. He wasn't known as The Prince of Pop for nothing. Fall Out Boy just killed it D:

The Foo Fighters - Baker Street tongue.gif

and

Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World.
As a massive Bowie fan, even I can say that this song was made for Cobain.

And also- Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is so much more poignant and meaningful that NIN's.

In my opinion smile.gif

I got another one. It's actually worse than Limp Bizkit, a LOT worse. Let's just say the Who made a little song called My Generation, pretty important song - well, forty years later, an "artist" called Hillary Duff decided to cover this song for her little Disney audience. Maybe they thought it would give her a little edge, but apparently the most famous line from the whole damn song "I hope I die before I get old" is a little TOO edgy for Disney. They changed the line, THAT LINE, to "I hope I don't die before I get old" WHAT?!! And that's only one line. Everything's terrible. It's crap. Makes me sick to hear it. Her stutter's horrible, there's no conviction in the delivery, and - damn them all - they took out the Ox's solo completely! AAAHHHH!!!

I tend to strongly dislike covers because most are donely VERY Poorly (coughsherylcrow'sversionofsweetchildominecough) but few, VERY FEW (like soft cell's cover of tainted love, and Santana's black magic woman, so much so people think Fleetwood Mac covered Santana, when its the other way around,) but those are those exception rather than the rule, so BOOOOO!!! to covers, unless they're REALLY, REALLY good.

I hate covers because well they pay insult for those who worked hard to create it. Buyers can get judgmental sometimes . . .
