Cover vs. Original

Loverman


This is a example for a song, in which the cover version is a great improvement over the original. Metallica's version is one of my all-time favorite Metallica songs, whereas the original is a mediocre punk song.

well first off metallica was an o.k. band in the 80's but now they're just sellouts. second they would be nowhere if they hadn't of stumbled a little band called the Misfits. and third off they should never, ever, try to re-enact a work of art suck as Nick Cave's. because "metallica" hasn't got the slightest clue about that genre of music and they're only doing it to once again sellout. "why are they doing cover songs?!?!" you might ask. well, want know why? because there a bunch of alcoholics that can't write anymore so they have to mess with other artists work. and for the record they can never cover a Misfits song the right way, no one can.

I've never ever heard of Nick Cave so he can fuck right off! Metallica molested Nick Cave by covering his song! I imagine Nick Cave is sitting in a box on the side of a highway wishing that he was a Metallica groupy!

Saying Metallica's cover of this song is better than the original is like saying that Thomas Kinkade is a better artist than Leonardo Da Vinci.

metallica couldn't cover their mothers in semen from their flacid cocks.nick cave writes songs-metallica write shit.typical though that a pop metal band will always get more coverage than a genuinely good band.fuck metallica.

My god this is sad. Listen people, Nick's early Birthday Party records would make these bozos piss their pants, and even Murder Ballads is about 9000x harder than Metallica. Mediocre punk song? For shame.
