  2. -Limp Bizkit's first album was great but they went downhill afterwards. Faith was fun to go crazy to.
    -Sound of Silence was covered wonderfully.
    -I've never heard of the band or song Crazy Town covered.
    -Alien Ant Farm is awesome. That whole album was amazing.
    -MGK covering SOAD? Can't be good.
    -Bad Wolves cover of Zombie is pretty damn good.
    -Killswitch Engage doing Holy Diver is maybe better than the original. Maybe.
    -I don't know anything about the next one
    -Puddle of Mudd butchered a great song. Horrible. I've tried to sing songs out of my range. Never works.
    -Metallica did okay with Last Caress. Not great, but okay
    -Korn can do no wrong. One was freaking awesome.
    -Oops, yeah. That's all I can say.
    -Devil Wears Prada? Um, no
    -6 Feet Under? What is this noise?
    -Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is the best cover ever.
    -I love Avenged Sevenfold, but Walk? No. Don't do that.
    -Take on Me was butchered.
    -If you're gonna cover a song. Do it as if you wrote it.

  3. Sound of silence was an amazing cover. He did a great job on that. Pop goes punk introduced me to a lot of bands. I have to totally disagree with the take on me “take”… I loved this song.

  4. i think shitting on Wes for the Nirvana is okay BECAUSE Wes has proven over the past twenty years to be a total dickhead. go watch all the videos (yes, PLURAL) of him ruining shows by getting too drunk. sometimes he walks off stage in a fit, sometimes his band members walk off embarassed, etc. Dude's been arrested enough times for being a tool also.

  5. isnt "behind blue eyes" – limp bizkit covering the who – what they're known for? 🤔 at least over here in brazil most people don't even remember who tf limp bizkit are unless you put their behind blue eyes cover on! they didn't change the song to accommodate fred screaming (but they did add some turntable scratches and hiphop vibe) and it didn't suck at all

  6. Children of Bodom covering Britney Spears is a reason that I really enjoy listening to them. Their music is more technically impressive rather than great music, but they always seemed to have fun making their songs. They leaned into their themes of death, folklore, etc. in a way that's a lot of fun to listen to. I don't have to take them seriously; I can just jam out to their music and appreciate the killer riffs.

  7. Cradle of Filth's version of Temptation is really much better than the original, if you're doing a 2nd part of this.
    Also, covering Pantera might not be easy but I think 2 minutes to late night did an awesome job at it.
