Cover vs. Original

Whiskey in the Jar


Thin Lizzys version is a classic song, but Metallica is more powerful! A hard decision!

Not bad, but this is not a real covered song. "Whisky in the jar" is a traditional irish song re-arranged first by Thin Lizzy and it became popular with them. Anyway, Hetfield is a good singer but no one can replace Phil Lynott's voice. My heart goes to Phil...

Metallica has better musicians, and Thin Lizzy thought to remake it first, but I personally like Metallica for their originality.

I don't like either particularly. It's a traditional song. Neither one of these is the original recording.

My Vote is for metallica. The thin Lizzy version is great too, but I like the energy Metallica brings in to it, they give it more of an edge. But Andy, Belém, from Brazil, is right, Every version os the song you've ever heard is essentially a cover of it.
