Cover vs. Original

Under Pressure / Ice Ice Baby


Because of this blatant rip off of real musicians like Queen and David Bowie, Vanilla Ice will forever be a dead man to me. Anyone votes for Iceman, and your are either crazy, stoned, or just doing it out of spite, hopefully the latter.

you'll never gonna get it.
you have to be in this domain... music. if you want to understand these things.

i voted for queen, i admit, but the u didn't heard "under pressure" when i heard that bassline, i always tought of vanilla ice. and now i realized i was wrong. i don't hate vanilla ice though.

i'm not a hater. different music genre... different fans.
why argue?

there a re a lot of new wave musicians who are covering good old songs. that's just the way of life.

Dude all that duchbag vanilla had to do was give the proper credit where it was due... musicians are inspired by others all the time. he clearly went his own way with it, but to not give props to the musicians who created that particular riff is a violation of creativity and he will be forever a duchbag for that lame ass move.

Whoever put this on this website, and everyone who has voted here, have failed to understand the difference between "cover" and "sample". Vanilla Ice has not covered Queen! He did not use a single lyric from the Queen original, nor has he reinterpreted the music. He simply sampled a very short riff from it to use on a completely different track.

I think that sanity has itself crowned Queen as conquerors of this battle even before this poll was created.

vanilla ice is just some stupid rapper who cant admit that he ripped off a perfectly good song, I mean he argued that he change one note and thought that would make it his song WHAT A DUMB ASS!!! but no matter how many good songs he rips off he will always be a terrible musicion!
