Don't get me wrong. GnR were what was needed in a time that rock was dead. Their original stuff was GREAT. They should just NOT try to cover bands better than they are.

Well their first album was great.. the rest meh..

Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK

Megadeth - Anarchy in the UK (cover) 5/10 Megadeth is great but Dave always seem to need some fiber when he sings.

Yep 10/10 from me for Nazareth as well. I'm a huge fan, No Mean City is a belter of an album.

Btw intrepid, yes you do have to post the original, you also have to rate the previous cover and your own.
(you'd think the Mods around here would at least read the opening post

Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall, The Original

Korn - Another Brick in the Wall, The Cover. 9/10

I like this cover, given a good dose of KoRN attitude, still not as good as the original though.

[edit cause i was typing while Cug was posting. 6/10. Mainly coz i love the Pistols]

Easy one to rate i HATE Korn! 0/10

Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child

Steve Ray Vaughan - Voodoo Child (cover) 10/10 what can you say that hasn't already be said about SRV?

Well that's the end of my list, Now I have to look up some more covers.

9/10, i love Stevie Ray.

MC5 - Kick Out the Jams, The Original, imo one of the greatest rock 'n roll bands ever. There's a better video of this song somewhere but i cant find it, might be on Google vid. Way ahead of their time.

Rage Against The Machine - Kick Out The Jams, The Cover. 6/10

I love RATM but no one will ever do an MC5 song justice.

I didn't include this one because I thought it was a given. McCartney and Jet's Live and let Die, for a James Bond movie at that:

Well it was what 24 years ago.. I'm sure that some of the younger posters might not have a clue about the song.

Oh BTW Props for posting MC5 mojo

@ Cug, thanks MC5 are the BOMB, as my daughter would say.

Sorry Lita, 6/10. I would have given Voivod 8/10.

Pulp - Common People, The Original

William Shatner - Common People, The Cover. 8/10 cause i cant stop laughing, wonder if Joe Jackson knew what he was getting into, Ben Folds i can understand, he likes a good laugh.

9/10 I like it better than the Original!

Santo & Johnny - Sleep Walk (Original)

Brian Setzer Orchestra - Sleepwalk (Cover) 11/10 Just expletive awesome!

posted on Jul, 17 2007 @ 10:33 PM
Brian Setzer 11.5/10.

Jesus and Mary Chain - Head On, The Original

Pixies - Head On, The Cover. 9/10.

Almost tempted to say the Pixies do it better.

Here's a Venus cover that gets 5/10 from me:

Bananarama - Venus (cover)

Shocking Blue - Venus (original)

posted on Jul, 27 2007 @ 09:57 PM
I love bananarama Hellmutt so that gets a 7/10 from me.

AC/DC - TNT - The Original

Six Feet Under - TNT - The Cover

Strange but i like it. 6/10.

posted on Aug, 3 2007 @ 12:31 AM
5/10 for the TNT cover.Nice raw guitar sound but the solo tried to go Sabbath and those singers all sound the same when they do..whatever it is they're doing.

posted on Aug, 3 2007 @ 03:33 AM
aylyan, pretty hard to top the VU but the Cowboy Junkies go close. 8/10 for that version.

Outkast - Roses, the original

Hayseed Dixie - Roses, the cover

Heaps funny cover, i'd give it a 7/10.


posted on Aug, 13 2007 @ 06:58 PM
Hard to rate that cover... I'm not fond of the song. so how about a non-committal 5/10

Ritchie Valens - La Bamba Original

Los Lobos - La Bamba Cover. About as good as a cover gets. 10/10

posted on Aug, 14 2007 @ 06:43 PM
Sorry double post. Damn these thick fingers.

@ Cug, i agree, in fact i think i prefer the cover to the original 10/10.

Skyhooks - Women In Uniform (1978), R.I.P Shirl. Loved this band growing up.

Iron Maiden - Women in Uniform

I'm also a huge Maiden fan but they dont even come close with this cover imo. 5/10.


posted on Aug, 14 2007 @ 09:13 PM
I'll give Maiden 8/10 I never heard the original before so Maiden sounds better.

He is something a little different from the last cover song I posted.

Gloria Jones - Tainted Love (1964) (just audio) original

Now the cover version, there are a ton of them to pick for this song, Soft Cell, and Manson's versions are probably the best known versions. But I'm going to go for the version the Coil did.

They took the song in a very different direction, It's an artistic reference to AIDS.

Banned from MTV for being too disturbing.
Featured in the The Museum of Modern Art.

Depressing as this video is, it gets a 10/10 from me.

Coil - Tainted Love (Cover)

I dont think ive heard a bad cover of that song Cug. 8/10. Living End do a great version. Tainted Love

Here's a cover for AccessDenied. Have to give Leppards version 9.5/10

Mott The Hoople - Golden Age Of Rock & Roll

Def Leppard - The Golden Age of Rock & Roll, (couldnt find a video by the band so had to settle for a fan video unfortunately)
