Sounds like T-Rex butchering In Bloom.

Chula Vista will definitely choke me for saying this is better.
I'm sure right now all my enemies are petitioning the mods for he un-banning.
All I have to say to them is:
Release the Kraken!¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Dinosaur Jr. - Show Me The Way (Cover)

Karengirl 12-06-2018 03:59 AM

Dear Prudence - Siouxsie & The Banshees better than Beatles
Sweet Jane - Cowboy Junkies better than Lou Reed
New Kind Of Kick - Jesus & Mary Chain
Muse
both better than original

Surely you're not saying T. Rex is bad? Yeah the cover's a little cheesy, but I think that is what they were going for.

Not at all, i like T-rex. And i do appreciate they tried a different direction with it but imo it didn't quite work, that's all. I heard another version of in bloom that was like ska punk and it didnt quite sound right to me either.

I do like this version of drain you tho


elphenor 12-14-2018 03:13 PM

the best T.Rex cover though


elphenor 12-14-2018 03:16 PM

and despite my love for Brian Eno, Bauhaus has the better take on Third Uncle as well


Unitron 01-01-2019 01:35 PM

As awesome as the original one is, John Bush's vocals on this cover are amazing:

Dude111 01-01-2019 04:18 PM

I would say CROSBY STILLS AND NASH - Woodstock (Although I heard it before Jonis so I prefer it)

Unitron 01-10-2019 12:28 PM


ziggywas 01-18-2019 11:41 AM

i got one!


MicShazam 01-18-2019 11:42 AM

I suppose Marilyn Manson's version of Tainted Love. Not because his version is good, but because the original is even ****tier.

The Batlord 01-18-2019 11:48 AM

What is Tainted Love?

MicShazam 01-18-2019 11:51 AM

One of those eternal questions humans have been asking since they first walked the Earth.

And now that I listen to it, Born to Be Wild has more far more charm as a hard blues rock song calling itself "heavy metal thunder" than a self-referential metal song.

That's like saying Disturbed did The Sound of Silence justice.

I am very offended and will have to go barf in a bucket now. Excuse me.

Lilja 01-18-2019 04:15 PM

Peter Gabriel's cover of the Magnetic Fields's "Book of Love". So much more passion than the original.


SmokeAndMirrors 01-18-2019 04:40 PM

I get that they did it as a joke, though I also get the joke...


MicShazam 01-18-2019 04:44 PM

Seems more like your usual awful metal cover of non-metal music than a joke, but what do I know.

What I do know is that every metal band that has ever covered a non-metal song and given it harsh vocals (or for that matter covered a metal song that originally did not have harsh vocals with harsh vocals added in the cover version) have committed unforgivable crimes against the art of music. It just basically never translates well.
