Heavy flow this month?


Why Atreyu should be legally forbidden from performing covers.


Faith No More: Epic


That was awful. I wonder if Atreyu thought it sounded good.

Bon Jovi: You Give Love A Bad Name


It was bad enough by Bon Jovi, then Atreyu came up with the great idea of covering it.

I think Atreyu should stick to making their own shitty songs. Stop fucking up other peoples music.

Atreyu is such a horrid hot topic band.

Bohemian Rhapsody.

Queen




Montserrat Caballe and Bruce Dickinson




I really have nothing to say about this one. Its a matter of watching it yourself and making an opinion.

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
Wow...I really do appreciate the effort you put into this! I only listened to "Am I Evil" and "Breadfan", since those are two of my faves. Metallica did a great job on both covers, thought I must say I really liked Diamond Head's version of "Am I Evil". I could take or leave the original version of "Breadfan" though. Thanks for posting those!

"Live and let die" by GNR is the best cover I've ever heard and I prefer it to the original by Wings.
Why? because GNR made the song feel like it should sound... the subject matter is very cold/harsh, I just felt Wings didn't convey that message of "screw everybody else, worry about yourself" as well as GNR did.

My second fav is "Nobody does it better" played live by Radio head, I do like the original by Carly Simon but the Radio Head one is very well done and gives it some well needed balls. I liked the arrangement done by Radio Head, it makes me want to listen to the original again without feeling the original was better... they kind of stand up as good versions on their own.

Other then that I generally feel covers fall short of the original and rather just listen to the original.
