Favourite Cover Versions

Postby ELECTRIKITTY » October 20th, 2011, 10:28 am

Covers of songs stand for everything I hold dear; irony, stupidity and, above all, ripping off someone else's original work (and making a better job of it) :D

But.. what are our favourites? :???:


I personally enjoy:

New Found Glory - Everything I Do
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - End of the Road
Goldfinger - 99 Red Balloons
Less Than Jake - I Think I Love You
Guano Apes - Big in Japan
Reel Big Fish - Take on Me
Alien Ant Farm - Smooth Criminal
Richard Cheese - Down with the Sickness
Richard Cheese - Freak on a Leash
Save Ferris - Come on Eileen
Ska Daddyz - Hotel California

Yourself?

^^ OH MY GOD Cyrus' cover was the worst I've heard in forever!

I really love Feeling Good covered by Muse. My Generation by Green Day and Anarchy In The UK by Mötley Crüe are kinda perfect too. :3

I'd never heard this one before.. just googled a video.. words fail me. At least Kurt isn't alive to see his song being buttraped like that.

Yay, Richard Cheese is awesome. I love hearing dark songs sung in an upbeat way. I pee myself laughing at some of his tracks. Metaphorically of course :D

And I completely forgot about Mr. Warner! I liked Sweet Dreams and Tainted love best out of his I think.


Also.. I don't like the band in general.. but Wheatus - A Little Respect reminds me of good times :)

Exactly. :D Most of his songs are great and fun to listen to. The first song I heard of his was Down With The Sickness; It was in the remake of Dawn of the Dead.

That's where I heard him first too! Fantastic song to end the film with. I almost had to do a double take with my ears to check it was actually Disturbed he was singing, haha.
