Cover vs. Original

Havana Affair


John Frusciante is one of rare guitar players who is able to have all the Ramones energy without sound of full distortion. Atmosphere of cover is more psychodelic and closer to the actual theme of the song as it is about the cold war and this kind of psychodelia is just what this song needed. Of course, I think original is a punk-rock holy grail, but in this case student beats the teacher. rhcp 4ever

I voted RHCP a few weeks ago but have been listening to the song more often. The ramones now take my vote.

I'm glad an eleven year old knows SO much about music. Seriously kid go drink your juice and shut up Ramones are better though in my opinion

RHCP totaly made this song be music. i first saw them play it at slane castle, so i came back home, with this feeling :"what is that new song?? so i ran an internet search, saw the ramones do play it and totaly realised what what Peppers made out of an old "hit"

RHCPs Havana Affair rendition deserves salutations of emulations of congratulations for beating the stipulations of all the bastions of congregations.

At least respect RHCP I like both...

I think that RHCP is better 'couse it's more melodic, but Ramones are better 'couse original vesion is stronger, full of "punk energy". I heard both of them and in my opinion both bands are great- in RHCP you can hear some kind of soft and there is their all histroy, did anybody read AK autobiography, or book called "Kalifornizacja"? Well, "Kalifornizacja" is written by Polish reporter...So RHCP, my favourite band 4 ever, Ramones...I like them
