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?

Tribute albums are pretty cool in terms of introducing yourself to different artists. Each artist/groups have different styles/genres of how they play music.

So yeah, I'm for covers.

EDIT: Haha, Dave Chappelle much?

It does entirely depend on who's doing the cover. I am NOT for people who cover a song as their first hit just because they know it will do well.

Some songs, like 'My Generation' have been covered by a few people and some are good, in this case I like the Oasis cover.

No stoning this time Slash. tongue.gif

It depends on the cover. I've found I do like some covers even though I tend to be a snob about such things. The Ramones do great covers of songs, for example they did a whole album (Acid Eaters) devoted to the songs from the 60's they liked.

There was also a cover of Smoke On The Water on the Point Break soundtrack done by a band called Loudhouse that I rather liked. Smoke on the Water was one song I felt should never be covered.

Here is the youtube video of her singing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uvUhfTHnGI

It's not really a cover, per se, since it is the band except Freddie, but I don't like Paul Rodgers singing with Queen, lol. I watched a concert of them performing with him on TV before and he tried making everything sound more country influenced.

And the video sucked too. dry.gif

Guns and Roses did a really good cover of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" back in the 80's. That was an example of a good cover, a band that takes a song and makes it their own. If someone is going to do a cover just because they like preforming that song and nothing else then why bother?

It's going to be much like someone singing it in a talent show.

For me, a cover has to really add something to the original song in order to be worthwhile.

I'm not that big on covers, unless the cover band ends up making a good cover by trying not to overdo the song itself. *I know, sounds confusing even to me.*

But mainly, if the cover is different and a good sound for the band, then I'll like the cover. Otherwise, it's just not me.

Some covers are pretty good, but they get old really fast.

Personally, I'm getting sick of hearing "I Fought the Law" over and over again by a million different bands. I like the song, but it's way overdone.

Believe it or not Avril did a cover of System Of A Downs Chop Suey. .__.; HORRIBLE. I wish I had a link to it.

But, I really like covers.
I love it when punkish bands cover really poppy songs and make it good.
Liiike, The Suicide Machines covering What I Like About You. It is so much better than any other version.
And also My Chemical Romance did an excellent cover of The Misfits Astro Zombies.

Overall, I do like covers.
