Cover vs. Original

Stone Cold Crazy


Metallica covered Queen on their pure cover-cd, the 2nd CD of Garage Inc. With this album they wanted to pay tribute to the heros of their youth. Stone Cold Crazy sounds very similar to the original, but in my opinion noone can reach the distinctive voice of Freddy Mercury. But you decide!

Metallica is not a real great band (hits, originality, voices, technique, importance, style...). Queen was, and still is so. Don´t compare

As a massive fan of both bands it's very difficult to pick one of the two versions; in fact the contest is so close that the only way I could decide would be to flip a coin :)

I don't see much sense in comparing an original to a cover. Without the previous there would no be the latter. However, it is reasonable to judge them independently. The original song is so perfect that the only thing Metallica had to do with it is to make it a little bit more heavy with the impressive drumming during the vocal parts of the song. They realized that by making it sound like a heavy bombardment the song would become just as intens in the late nineties as it was in the early and mid seventies. So congratulations for both!

Queen is Queen.. No one can cover it...no one! Besides i like Metallica, James is miles away from Mercury...like Kirk from May.
