Yes. Also, why in the hell did she have to cover Robbie Williams' "Angels"? I love that song, and her version of it is just...argh!

I actually don't mind their version of this song. A hell of a lot darker a version, but it's still kinda interesting to me nonetheless.

That does remind me, though, of one other cover I forgot earlier that I can't stand: Disturbed's version of Tears For Fears' "Shout" (another song I love)-I really don't like the way they did it-they even sampled a bit of "Ice, Ice Baby" during their version of the song, too! I heard that and was like, what the hell? No!

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - everything they've ever recorded

i actually like dkm's cover of 'fortunate son'. what i don't like is what they did with 'guns of brixton'. they do a mean 'baba o'riley' at any rate...


me first and the gimme gimmes recorded one good thing. and that is on 'runi johnny's bar mitzvah': 'the longest time' with the 'suspect device' intro. that is funny.

seeing as i had no idea that existed, then what i've heard about that 'rap thing that sounds like zeppelin' is true.

that's disturbing.

Whaaaaaaa...

Never heard this. Not sure I want to.

Speaking of Celine, by the way...how about her, um...oh, hell, let's just call it butchering of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" that she did at that Divas show in whatever year it was (never actually watched that particular show, but I've heard clips of her performance of the song in other things, and...wow. No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, dear freakin' god, NO!). Like the one guy from...Anthrax, I think it was, said in the least metal moments show when talking about this: "Do I really need to explain why Celine Dion doing 'You Shook Me All Night Long' is one of the least metal moments?"

how the fuck anyone can enjoy that, let alone listen to it is completely unfathomable.
I hate to disappoint you, but I don't have children.

I never said that it was great or should be enjoyed by everyone. I certainly understand why people would hate it (hence me mentioning it in this thread). But I like it. End of story.

Tori Amos' cover of "Losing My Religion" is quite painful.

I almost drove my car into a tree, on purpose, when I heard that horrible cover of Imagine by Perfect Circle....

Pet Shop Boys - Streets
Scissor Sisters - Comfortably Numb (what were they thinking??!!)
