That cover was horrible. Even more horrible than the original.




This I agree with, 100%. That is one of my favourite songs!

Yes, the version of Easy by Faith No More is absolutely fantastic, but the original song is also very good. For my money, believe it or not, and before it got horribly overplayed, The Ataris cover of "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley was far better than the pseudo-80s synth original. That, and they referenced Black Flag instead of the Grateful Dead. Right on.

MM never covered the song. Dope on the other hand, did a great cover of it.


Edit: I went to youtube to find a good video of the song to show you. I decided instead to break my computer in half out of frustration because the first comment on Dope's video was "This isn't the original, this song is from the fifties."

The internet is too dumb to survive.

I think Johnny Cash managed to raise "desperado" from the grave.

It's not an actual video of his. Somebody put a bunch of his other videos together.

Nope. That's Dope's cover from the American Psycho soundtrack: http://www.amazon.com/American-Psych.../dp/B00004T0L1

well I have to comment that I disagree with the majority of the posts in this threats...I find the original versions of most songs mentioned better then their covers, and in any case I wouldn't call half of this songs bad...I even saw replies about "Money" and "Welcome to the Machine", which are considered,and are classics.

GoldFingers 99 Red Baloons cover. Its not that the song is originally bad, goldfinger just did it better.
