Cover vs. Original

The big song contest


Nowadays life without cover songs is hard to imagine. Permanently we run into these remakes while we listen to the radio and sometimes we even don't know that this song has existed for a long time and is now only covered in a rough-and-ready way. Mostly the original versions are much better, but they were not played in the radio any more.
However, sometimes an artist makes it not only to copy the original song, but also improves it drastically. Only in this case the remake should have a right to exist.
On this website you can vote, if a cover band has managed this or if they have just produced a cheap plagiarism. In addition you can also leave a comment for each song.
If you like to hold a vote on a special song you can't find here, you can add your personal song contest here.
And now enjoy voting!
