    Ska was a mistake.
    I didn't realize they covered that.
    I liked their Caress Me Down song
    But their rest... Meh...

    Another.

    May be biased because I'm a huge Faith No More fan but I prefer their cover of War Pigs

    Feel like if I hadn't heard n srsly loved the original (and Sabbath in general) I'd prefer the cover. The singer for faith no more isn't bad.... But ain't no Ozzy in his hayday. We don't talk about the current 'give me pudding with my Ativan SHARON!!!!' dottering old Ozzy.
    Oddly enough I can't find the cover of NIB that Ozzy did with Primus (it's pretty good) but can find the original.

    Heavy riffs? Fuckin bass AF? Lyrics about selling ur soul n body to the dark prince? Oh hell yes.

    First set: REVCOCKS all the fucking way.
    Rod Stewart= depressed soft rock soccer mom jams, imo. Usually played out of the speakers of a minivan.
    Revolting Cocks= keyed up electro rock that u can snort uppers n fuck to. Definitely better.

    Second set.... Idk.. I like em both? For different reasons. I like the first dudes voice. I like Nirvana's guitar. Hard call.
    Wasn't there another a folk band that covered this?

    Just because your soul is full of ancient tomes n goats doesn't mean the rest of us want to live up to the standards of the hairy hierophat of EDF.

    this is the most overrated song imo, smug self congradulatory circle jerking without actually trying to make any global difference.
    VS


    Hijacking the original song's lyrics to convey cynicism on all of it's aims in realistic proportion to how imperfect people are. Making the song limited to pointing out human flaw instead of some stoned lazy ass liberal pipedream that Beatles wouldn't lift a finger to bring about.

    Hmmm so does that make perfect circle a good cover band????

    Lol no
    They royally fucked up covering Depeche mode just like Marilyn Manson, because covers are only good if the original is either missing something in the first place or can be converted to a good genre (yeah fuck sublime ska is shit).




    But there is only one artist capable of not missing a beat on making good covers even when the original didn't really need it.

    Infected Mushroom is the only band capable of improving covers with consistency.

    I hate Lennon's song n do think A Perfect Circle did it better.

    While I agree to do a good cover you gotta bring something new to the song (such as changing genres like Type O Negative did with some of theirs) or hit it totally, I think a good cover band can cover something as a homage to the original group and still do it justice.
