Cover vs. Original

Got the Time


Honestly? Anthrax took a really good stab at a great song -- but I just love the original too much. Sorry.

Both versions are great but Anthrax is metal and so am I.

i too never knew the Anthrax version was a cover until I heard it on My Name Is Earl. I think I still prefer the Anthrax version but if I had heard the Joe Jackson version first I'm sure I would like it more.

Like many, I didn't even know this was a cover until recently. I've gotta give the original the nod here. But kudos to Anthrax for having much wider influences (Joe Jackson/P.E.) than typical thrashers.

The Anthrax version will always reign supreme for me. That bass line is just too good.

The Anthrax version wins for me as it has a greater sense of urgency which fits with the theme of the song.

Been a Anthrax fan for a very long time. Discovered this song as a cover only recently. The Joe Jackson is killer! Wished Slayer would remake this tune. Anthrax's version sounds like something off of the LOTR soundtrack.
