Covers

Postby Jwlynas » Thu Aug 26, 2010 7:17 pm

Covers being the type of music popularised by up-and-coming bands or the Radio 1 live Lounge, wherein a band will play the song of another to their own preferred beat.

They can range from the amusing (The Baseballs, Richard Cheese, Pat Boone)
The Baseballs - Hey There Delilah
Pat Boone - Holy Diver
Richard Cheese - Down With The Sickness

To the truly awful (Jedward...)
Jedward - All The Small Things

To the Amazing (Transiberian Orchestra, Northern Kings]

My question... What are your favourite, or indeed Least favourite covers.

Oh that's a good one.

I wish someone made a cover for Muse's Uprsing. I know how pop that song is, but I swear to god that I hear a completely different song in my head whenever it gets played in my vicinity.

To me, that is hands down the most metal, non-metal song I have ever hard. If I was a musician, I would totally cover that motherfucker to be one of the meanest revolution songs on the planet.

Oh god yes. Vader's cover of Raining Blood sound so much more evil than the original.
There cover of Fight Fire with Fire is good too.

Pretty much any cover by Van Canto
Battery intro is very quiet
Rebellion
Master of Puppets
Kings of Metal
