Cover vs. Original

Smooth Criminal


Thanks for this proposal, Tom. I have to admit, when I first read the name of the song, I didn't know which song it is. But then I started listening to it and I recognized it of course. But that the version by Alien Ant Farm is only a cover version and that Michael Jackson wrote the original, I haven't known so far. But you live and learn.
However, I like this song. But I'm not a big fan of Michael Jackson. So my vote goes to Alien Ant Farm.

I prefer Alien Ant Farm, although MJs is also good. It's probably cos I love AAF and the guitars etc are awesome in their version

MJ's voice makes everything really epic. AAF is really rather average. When your best selling song is a cover of someone else's, it's kind of a problem.

Michael's version was really good but, aaf gave it a new heavy metal vib tht getz the blood pumpin. Dnt get me wrong mj's version did too just not tht much.

The MJ version is too slow and a bit boring.
AAF have a way better guitar sound to their cover.
