Cover vs. Original

Turn The Page


I think that both artists did a good job on "Turn The Page". The heavy style from Metallica fits quite well to this song. But I like the calm-country-style version by Bob Seger better.
So what is your opinion? I can imagine that lots of younger people don't even know the original version by Bob Seger. So take the chance and listen to this great song.

The metallica version just has that mullet/jock rocker vibe to it just like everything else they have put out after justice. I hate their version so my vote is on Bob.

Metallica's version not only didn't "kill" - it should be shot, stabbed, burned, mutilated and buried deep in the deser somewhere!!!! Bob Seger's version is, and always will be, THE ONE AND ONLY 'Turn the Page'. Clearly, my Detroit roots are showing, but, seriously, clean out your ears!!!!

Metallica's version of Turn the Page killed Bob Seger's version! There is no doubting it! They put some enthusiasm into the song and added power which Seger's version is lacking.

It's really a pity, that Bob Seger fell into oblivion. I haven't heard him on the radio for a long time. He is such a great artist.
