Original



Cover



I'm a Motley Crue fan, but I don't think they did this song justice. When I hear the Brownsville Station version, I can actually imagine smokin (or tokin) in the school bathroom. The Motley Crue version just makes me imagine thinking about it without the balls to actually do it.

This one has always stumped me as I could never actually remember whose was the cover & whose was the original.

I know it's a Mary Chain song now.





Don't ask me which I like better.

I love this song, both versions.






I refuse to choose between the two. Queen made an awesome song and NIN made an awesome cover.

Another one that I can't decide on. I have no idea why I like Metallica punk covers as much as I do, but...

Yeah, I really hated that Oasis cover of I Am the Walrus.

Thats my problem with Oasis, they're really more of a disgrace to The Beatles than a tribute, they just water everything down.

Al Green (seriously underated vocalist):


Talking Heads Cover:


TH is musically more involving but vocally miles behind.

Another one I thought of is Marilyn Manson's cover of "Down in the park."

Definitely hunt that down, if you can (I would, but crappy dial-up and YouTube do not go together very well).

After "And Justice For All", the only album I can respect that was released by Metallica is "Garage Inc". The entire album was covers from their history. Of course the album was released to make money, but it also showed where most bands make their start. I'm not sure I could find a band that never played music from another band. That said, I am going to list every song on Garage Inc. with both versions. Original on the left, and Metallica on the right.

Disk 1

Discharge:Free speech for the dumb.


Diamond Head: It's Electric


Black Sabbath: Sabbra Cadabra


Bob Seger: Turn The Page


Misfits: Die, Die my darling


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: Loverman


Mercyful Fate/King Diamond: Satan's Fall / Curse Of The Pharaohs / A Corpse Without Soul / Into The Coven / Evil
Since it is a mix of a few songs, Its going to be a bit harder to do this one and I'll link it later.

Blue Oyster Cult: Astronomy


Thin Lizzy: Whiskey In The Jar


Lynyrd Skynyrd: Tuesday's Gone


Discharge: The More I See



Disk 2

Diamond Head: Helpless


Holocaust: The Small Hours


Killing Joke: The Wait


Budgie: Crash Course In Brain Surgery (Sorry, I couldn't find a decent Metallica version.)


Misfits: Last Caress / Green Hell
Misfits is individual songs. Metallica side is both songs.

Metallica side is green hell only


Diamond Head: Am I Evil


Blitzkrieg: Blitzkrieg


Budgie: Breadfan


Diamond Head: The Prince


Queen: Stone Cold Crazy


Anti-Nowhere League: So What?


Sweet Savage: Killing Time


Motörhead: Overkill


Motörhead: Damage Case


Motörhead: Stone Dead Forever


Motörhead: Too Late Too Late




I think that for the most part, Metallica did an awesome job covering these songs. Most were done justice, but, some are crap.
I don't expect anyone to watch every video, but it might be worth your time to listen to a few of them.

I hope at least one member of Music Banter (besides me) enjoys the effort I put into this. Thanks
