Limp Bizkit-behind blue eyes :uhh:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another that seriously made me feel physically ill (make that mentally, I actually felt depressed after hearing it) was a techno remix of the song "Hello, I love You" by the Doors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The day they made that remix:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan shouted with glee as he let this loaf drop,

 

 

 

twice as many kids in Africa starved, and;

 

 

 

100,000 angels threw up and died simultaneously.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

:wall: :wall: :-X :-X :cry: :cry: :evil: :evil:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

<.<

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want, ney, I need to strange something.

Jose Gonzalez is one of the few people, other than Joy Division themselves, to do justice to the song: Love will tear us apart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ah yes, I completely forgot Jose Gonzalez's cover of Heartbeats, which is my most played song, ever.

Some thoroughly bad ones I can think of right now would be Scissor Sister's "Comfortably Numb" cover and Cradle Of Filth's "Fear Of The Dark". God they suck.

 

 

 

Heh, that's not Cradle of Filth, that's Graveworm who covered Fear of the Dark. I thought it was COF too for a long long time, but nay, 't is Graveworm who made a mess of that song. Cradle of Filth did a great job with Hallowed be thy name though. Imo, it's better than the original :x

 

 

 

And speaking of Maiden covers, After Forever's 'The Evil that Men Do' is definitely better than the original! Gosh, that song rocks my socks \o/

 

 

 

Some other great covers: Childen of Bodom - Talk dirty to me (cover of Poison),

 

 

 

Norther - Smash (Offspring cover), Sting - Windmills of your mind (Dusty Springfield), Dropkick Murphys - Black Velvet Band (Irish traditional), Sentenced - White Wedding (Billy Idol), Sonata Arctica - Fade to Black (Metallica), Nightwish - Over the hills and far away (Gary Moore)....Gosh, you just started me on my favourite subject: covers :D

 

 

 

Oh, this reminds me, I've heard Tarja's version of 'Happy Xmas' by John Lennon a few days ago. Sadly it sucks. :( Bad cover. Awesome original though. Another terribly bad one that comes to mind is Rammstein's Paint it Black (Rolling Stones, or Judas Priest - dunno who the original belongs to :[ ).


"Metal isn't about violence or faggy whiny lyrics. It isn't even about who plays the heaviest and fastest. It is about invoking a sense of wonder and magnitude that no other genre can depict."

I just can't get over this song which is a cover of an old beatles classic. Couldn't find the original one at youtube. It's just a shame Victor doesn't play the whole song there..

I personally like the cover Walk by Avenged Sevenfold. (Originally by Pantera.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't exactly know why I like it.. I guess I like both versions, Just seems like a good tribute to Pantera.

I really really liked Muse's cover of "House of the Rising Sun, I think The Animals did it first. Heard it on one of their b-sides and it's amazing.

Meatloaf's cover of Black Betty, by Ram Jam orignially. a b-side to the single 'it's all coming back to me now' (also an excellent cover), vinyl 7inch only.

 

 

 

sounds farbetter than any other cover, and the original


Back by popular demand!

And I guess I just wanted to tell you, as the light starts to fade, that you aree the reason, that I am not afraid, and I guess I just wanted to mention, as the heavens will fall, that we will be together soon if we will be anything at all.

And what its that supposed to mean exactly, Oy? :|

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To me, the average RS player here has 3 common characteristics:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/ They can not read or write properly

 

 

 

2/ They listen to RnB because of the bad-[wagon] clips and because they think it's cool to cuss

 

 

 

3/ They're quickly offended, they can't put anything in perspective

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that nÃÆââ¬Å¡Ãâð3 doesn't apply to you. I was joking, but I didn't intend to make a fool of you.
