Shit Versions Of Good Songs, Or Good Versions Of Shit Songs

Shit version of a good song:

YouTube - Whitesnake - Fool For Your Loving (HD)

*Coverdale looks like Alice Cooper but blonde!*

That version sucks all the feel out of it - too much chugging guitar; the bass had soul (some funk too!) and the guitars had subtly in the original:

YouTube - whitesnake - Fool For Your Loving - Ready An' Willing

As for the version with Steve Vai?


(3 months ago)

'The 'Ready An' Willing' was a way better version 'cause it was raw; not LA glam shit Coverdale did later'.

I agree.

Can you think of any other songs that have shit or perhaps, in some cases, even BETTER versions whether original studio, live or cover or remix etc? How about In Flames's cover of Genesis's 'Land Of Confusion' as an example of a good version of a shit song?

YouTube - In Flames - Land of Confusion

Hahaha, me neither.



Excruciating. Is that Graveworm's thang? Random pop rock songs in a hideous metal style? I think if you're going to do a cover then it should be something that could mean something to you and that the lyrics could be genuine. Do they really need a hero? They're not selling it to me.

On a similar metal band does pop song theme, I give you:

YouTube - Helloween - Lay All Your Love On Me

I actually own this album of abominable covers by Helloween. It was funny once. They murder this:

YouTube - Helloween - All My Loving

I also found this:

I think I quite like it actually.....

Some of my favourite covers:

Marillion covering Britney's Toxic - quite a good song, but didn't like the original

Is it a cover if its written and given to someone else I wonder, if so, a great siong but never liked the Bowie Version, All the Young Dudes, by David Bowie, done by Mott the hoople:

YouTube - MOTT THE HOOPLE -All The Young Dudes

Crap Covers that Shouldn't be alllowed:

Ozzy doing In My Life by the Beatles

YouTube - Ozzy- In My Life

Tears in Heaven ft Elton John, Rod Stewart, Steven Tyler, Josh Groban, Gwen Stefani, Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Slash, Andrea Bocelli, Katie Melua and Mary J. Blige

Def Leppards - Bringing on the Heartbreak covered by Mariah Carey

YouTube - Mariah Carey - Bringin' On The Heartbreak (High Quality)
