Random Topic of the Week 24 April 2016 (Great Race Lap 13)

Postby HyruleBalverine » Sun Apr 24, 2016 7:18 pm

I found out this week that a song that I'd heard sung by Johnny Cash, Hurt, was actually a cover of a Nine Inch Nails song. When I heard the original version, I was impressed and thought that it was so much better than the cover. Recently Disturbed did a cover of Simon & Garfunkle's Sounds of Silence and it was amazing! There are so many songs out there that have been redone by another artist for another genre of music. What are some of your favorites?

I love Disturbed's cover of Sound of Silence that was brilliant. Other covers that I like include the following:-

Joan Jetts cover of Dirty Deeds (AC/DC) and I Love Rock n Roll (The Arrows), Guns n Roses cover of Live and Let Die (Paul McCartney & Wings), Steve Stevens cover of Action (Sweet) and many many more. If I was to list all of them I'd be doinga lot of typing.

Mötley Crüe's version of "Anarchy in the UK" is way better than the original version by the Sex Pistols. Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" might be a really good classic, but I like Nonpoint's version better. If you're in to rock in Spanish, Belen Arjona's version of "Vivir Sin Aire" is also better than the original version by Mana. Metallica's version of Bob's Seger's "Turn the Page" is also a great cover.

Those are the only songs I can think of, off the top of my head, where the cover is better than the original.

I also like Disturbed's version of Genesis' "Land of Confusion" and Dream Theater's version of the entire Master of Puppets album by Metallica. There's also way too many great covers from Depech Mode's "Stripped"; including Rammstein's and Shiny Toy Guns'

Also, pretty much anything Metallica, Dream Theater, Faith No More and Garbage cover is pretty much amazing.
