Awesome/Crap Covers

Post by Boxcar Bob »

Personally, I thought Dream Theater's cover of 'Stargazer' was very average.

Staind's cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" from MTV Spotlight: Metallica was amazing.

However, any band who covers Queen can be shot :|

Less Than Jake's "Surrender" is more upbeat than the original, and really quite amazing.

White stripes does a load of amazing covers.
I felt like a race horse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit, his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like a tombstone.

I really like "For What It's Worth" when Rush covered it, I also enjoyed Rush's "The Seeker" but not as much as the original.

Opeth does a pretty good cover of Alice in Chains' "Would?".

Funny enough, Trent Reznor himself likes Cash's version a lot better than the original.

The worst cover ever definitely has to be Suicide Silence's cover of "Them Bones" by Alice in Chains. That is honestly some of the worst [censored] I have ever heard.

I loved Senses Fail's cover of Institutionalized by Suicidal tendencies.

There are a couple covers I like. Aiden's cover of Black Wedding.

Can't remember them all though

OH Jack white's cover of Tegan and Sara's Walking With A Ghost which is a very difficult song to cover.

Pearl Jam had an awesome cover of one of the who's songs.

I laughed my ass off when I heard Children of Bodom cover Oops, I Did it Again.... I liked the Deathstars cover of White Wedding, though I beleive The Murderdolls did a decent cover of that song as well.

Currently though I love Ace Frehley's version of Fox on the Run...

Amen brother, Ace really did Brian Connolly justice on that one.

I'm currently loving Glenn Hughes' cover of Misty Mountain Hop. Look it up, it's well worth a listen :D
