And it's ****ing terrible. I mean seriously "Under the Bridge" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in A Capella?

Anyway, to save this from a "cool story bro" what are the Pit's feelings on great songs being murdered by A Capella?

btw Here is link to the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" my mum is listening to:

The SLTS you posted is a lot better than some of the others of it I've heard. They've actually put thought into production.
A Capella versions of songs can be quite good, but they have to capture the mood properly, in his case i don't think the "dig-a-ding" really captures cobains guitar part...

EDIT: i thought wise guys version of thriller was quite good (yes i know it's in german here...)

Exactly, it doesn't matter if there is thought there (which is there, don't get me wrong) it has to sound GOOD. And "dig a ding" doesn't exactly cut it imo.

Just ****ing wow....

EDIT: The "Battery" one that ChucklesMginty posted was actually kinda cool, though very unusual at the same time.

Although I hate that particular cover, Van Canto really is a talented group. They are a good example of a capella music.

Jesus was all like "To those about to rock, I salute you." then he grabbed his mighty axe and rocked the Romans out really hard. Of course they were strict classical music so....
Wow, that Smells Like Teen Spirit is awful, but some can be really cool. Mostly original songs, not old grunge songs, I mean, what the fuck?!
That just sounds funny to me

Wow, that Under the bridge cover was absolute shit.
People are bastards. Bastardcoated bastards with bastardfilling.
The "Battery" one was kind of interesting. The others made me rage.
I saw a really good youtube video of a lot of different old video game tunes done a capella... I would try and find the like, but I'm lazy.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

Anyone got that A Cappella band that did versions of "The Trooper" and Slayer songs that were actually rather epic?

GOOD A capella, this Van canto and the worthless peons/blanks. Those are decent A capella, most of them are just wrong

I hate acapella, but this changed my mind. This was music, not parody.
A cappella itself doesn't bother me, but a cappella groups are some of the goofiest ****ers on the planet. The exception is, of course, Rockapella. Those guys were badasses.
Listen to mah discs.

I found it when I found this thread earlier but stupid browser wouldn't let me post...not sure if this will post...kept saying "invalid thread".

EDIT: Yay, it worked! Here's the copy/paste of what I tried to post a couple of hours ago.

"I thought this one was pretty cool, though speaking as someone who did choir in high school, I hate the "choir singing voices" used.
