1 Good and Bad Cover Songs on Thu Jul 22, 2010 9:37 am

Good.

No Doubt - It's My Life.
An okay original outshined by the remake. No Doubt's version has much more energy than Talk Talk's take. This makes it catchier and gives the song some more needed emotion.






Bad.

Five Finger Death Punch - Bad Company.
Slow, boring, monotonous. Disguising it as a 'tribute to the troops' is cheap and lame. At least when Drowing Pool dedicated a shitty tune to the military, it was an original. Just a bastardation of classic rock staple.

Gary Jules version of Mad World. The lyrics of the song work much better with this pace and tempo and single piano than they did with the original Tears for Fears version. The original feels a bit too upbeat, while the remake has a more glum and melancholy vibe.

'Evil Woman' by Black Sabbath. The original by Crow is okay, but this is heavier, sexier and more catchy.



Let us never forget the greatest cover song ever.

Johnny Cash - Hurt
Vulnerability. Regret. Mortality. Johnny Cash does what Reznor couldn't do with this one. He takes this song and forces you to drudge up all those things you'd rather have remain buried in the back of your mind. Is there another artist who can evoke so much emotion?



Bad.

Insane Clown Posse - Posse on Broadway
I actually really like the updated beat applied but the ICP ruins it with their revised 'psychopathic' lyrics. They also ruin it by being the Insane Clown Posse.

Hey...great idea for a thread krpykrwly. Smile


GOOD

The Jeff Healey Band - Communication Breakdown

The original is a classic Led Zep tune but this version amps up the guitar and replaces the vocals with some wailing harmonica. A truly kick ass remake.






And while I'm on the subject of The Jeff Healey Band....

GOOD

The Jeff Healey Band - While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Every Beatles fan knows this tune but I much prefer this remake to the original. Its much more passionate and melodic. George Harrison played acoustic guitar and sang backing vocals on this cover.

Pretty much anything by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes gets a thumbs up in my book. Very Happy

Siouxsie And The Banshees - The Passenger

I never heard the original until I started going to YouTube but IMHO its a very dull and lifeless song. The remake practically soars out of your speakers.

The Scorpions - I CanĀ“t Explain

The original is a good little tune...but the Scorps version blasts you out of your chair.

Great White - Once Bitten Twice Shy

I think the main reason this remake worked was due to the lead guitar work.

yes

And on the reverse side of the coin, every cover song Britney Spears ever did was pure shit.

The Ramones' cover of Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" was pretty fun.




as is their cover of CCR's "Have You Ever Seen The Rain?"



and, of course, Joey Ramone's cover of Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World"

Awesome.

The Punk Goes series is interesting. I find most of the albums to be feast ot famine in that when a song's good - it's really, really good and when it's bad - gross.

I wasn't even aware of the classic rock one. Thanks for the enlightenment.

Slower and with more bass lead, a really interesting take on the song.


BAD

Get outta here, Cash's version was great but nothing beats the original.

NIN is my second favorite band and while I agree that NIN's is better, Hurt is an overrated NIN song IMO. It's good, but NIN has better songs.


I LOVE these Peter Murphy/Jeordie White (Twiggy), Atticus and Trent Reznor covers.
