Cover vs. Original

Maggie's Farm


RATM pulls explosive energy from this classic track. It forces you to deal with what is being said, there is no ignoring it.

Thing is, you can't call the RATM song a cover really. They just took the lyrics and put it to a totally different tune. Even though I can't stand Dylan, I can't vote against him in this case because the context of the song makes so much more sense in his version. With the RATM version, while I loved the band, it's just another angry RATM song.

I'm pretty happy my vote just brought bobby D up - RATM is a good band but they were not meant to do this song - Sure they are "in your face" but bob dylan doesn't need to be in your face to be cool, and that's what makes him so cool. The upbeat older sounding country sound makes the song....

Bob Dylan's is much better. The music and just the way of approaching the song. Sure, RATM had more of an "in-your-face attitude" but Bob Dylan usually had this kind of subtle thing going on.
But then again, I hate RATM anyway...

Dylan is a classic, but the in-your-face attitude by Rage gives the listener the go-ahead to recognize a problem and then scream at and take action against the government until it produces the desired change!
