What do you think about the majority of covers? Many people here prefer originals of anime over their dubs, so how many feel the same on this subject? I was just curious because when I speak to certain people, they always prefer the orginal. I think that covers can be better than the original depending on who the artist is and who they are covering. I know I will probably get stoned (not on a good way by Mini) but I like the covers of I Fought the Law and Sympathy for the Devil by Green Day and GNR more than the originals. Blind Guardian's cover of Spread Your Wings is also pretty good. I prefer the Queen original, though.

Does anyone like covers or should songs be left alone?

I really like Nirvana's "Lake of Fire". "The Man Who Sold The World" is great too. It seems that Kurt's voice fits those songs biggrin.gif
I also like Fiona Apple's "Across The Universe" cover. It doesn't sound better than the original, obviously, however it's a good one.
Mihimaru GT's cover of "I should be so Lucky" sounds...a lot like their own style, which is great, because they've added their "signature" to it. And it's in Japanese. biggrin.gif
