Cover vs. Original

Paint it Black


In my opinion this is a very good cover and much more powerful than the original. However, I think the original Stones version is nevertheless a little bit better.

Comments about Paint it Black:

Love the Grip Inc. cover of this, well if you're into loud, powerful and fast music like me. Dave Lombardo just crushes the Rolling Stones with his huge drum play.

I think the two are almost indistinguishable. I'm listening to Echo's version on my ipod right now and I swear it's the Rolling Stones. Maybe I don't have the right version.

Once again, ANOTHER song where the cover isn't as good as the original, AND another band did a better cover than the one in the contest... once again, it is THE FEELIES. How has everyone forgotten that band and the amazing covers they did?
