I planned to listen once I got off, won't waste my time now
ended up listening and BPDaawg is out of his fucking mind if he thinks this version is remotely close to Buckley. JT is talented but Buckley was a goddamned prodigy
Original "Hurt" better than any cover, even Kermits
glad to see some folks know once in a lifetime talent when they see/hear it
yeah its sick live too #humblebrag
and this cover >>>>>>>>>>>> the original
Hope you and the fam have a great holiday bro.
'preciate it man. Happy Holidays to you and yours
undrtow Not trying to put Buckley down b/c Grace was a phenomenal album. Both versions are heartfelt as shit. Just like Jt's better.
BTW will be seeing Tool in Tucson in Jan. Pretty stoked.
I just can't see how that version would be considered better than Buckley's... but to each their own. JT needed help singing it, where Buckley knocks it out the park.
I'm jealous as fuck. I've heard rumors they'll be playing somewhere close to me in Feb. If that's the case, best believe I'll be there. Have you seen them live?
I saw them in Atlanta in 2007 I think it was. They played a pretty short set. Was amazing but used to bands playing more than 10 songs. Also Maynard stands off in the back on stage. Weird but got a good look a Dany Carey doing work.
Also saw APC a few months ago in Tempe. Again awesome but a short set with no encore. And their security was throwing people out with camera phones taking pics. I got some anyway
Yea, I've caught them 5 different times and APC once. just saw they're gonna be close to me on Feb 8, Will be there. I got some pics of the last show of their's I caught but the quality was shitty.
Nice. Hoping the will play some new shit
Same here. To be honest, I'd rather them finish up their album than to be touring
Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
I heard from someone that they only did one take when he recorded this song
Pretty impressive if true.
Not sure if this shit counts but I love it ...
Crossroads by Cream: originally by Robert Johnson in 1938
One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer by George Thorogood: originally by Amos Milburn in 1953, then by John Lee Hooker in 1966
i love springsteens original
same. and I'm a big The Band fan, but Springsteen's is much better
I don't know if it is better than the original, but it sure is one damn good version.
Please explain how this is possibly better than the original.
I know, right? Besides. Everyone knows that this is the best version:
sure, new twist on this worn out "classic," and not song by a guy putting his flaming pillow out by repeated biting...
no way I am listening to Shatner sing anything.
this isnt better than the original I just feel like posting it
Sure it is a new twist on a worn out classic. But by no means is it better than the original.
Read the thread title, its post covers that are better than the original, not just find covers and post them and claim they are better just because MJK sings them
Drummer Vinnie Paul seals the deal..
Yeah, it's called a joke.
The majority of the songs posted itt are not better than the originals. No need to pick out one to bash.
AN EXAMPLE HAD TO BE MADE
Joey Doughnuts will always be in our hearts.
*Disclaimer- I love Led Zeppelin, but Tool's version is just fanfuckingtastic
Thats a given
although, it's been posted itt, you still got a like for it
:43 mark. SIAP
You're both so far from correct it's not even sarcastically funny.
Cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" by Butch Walker. Her version is ok, but I will take his on a shitty cell phone camera...
And because I never really liked Stevie Nicks, a moderately hilarious cover of "Leather and Lace,"
Cool as shit video, too.
I don't agree with your assessment of Nicks, but Grohl is my favorite musician of all-time, and I'll like anything he injects his sweet, awesome talent into.(some homo)
Fucking love Butch Walker
