Why did "Me First and The Gimmie Gimmies" think they had the right to cover Stairway to Heaven. Their version sucks. what songs do you think should have not been covered.

I personally don't care. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. You didn't ****ing write the song, what right do you have to say who can cover it?

Just about any songs made in recent years should not be covered. I have heard them enough.

Any band can put do their own interpretation of any song they want, whether or not you happen to enjoy it. What gives you the right to say what band can cover another?
#12
Who cares? Any band can cover whatever they want, though I'll say overplayed songs, obviously can be annoying.

I think artists should have the right to do anything they want, it's their own interpretation. But for ****s sake, Reel Big Fish - Take On Me.. GTFO

Good Pedals
Good Amps

Imo, 3 songs should never be covered...

These songs are...

Stairway
Love Will Tear Us Apart
Another Brick in the Wall

They are just sooooo overdone
#19
Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't like Led Zep?

I don't like the Beatles either.

I'm pretty sure I'm some kind of mutant

Edit: That's not to say I don't respect either band for their ability/what they did for music, but I just don't enjoy listening to them at all.

Yeah, in rare cases. However, in many cases, it just ends up like the Fall Out Boy cover of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'.

Me First And The Gimmie Gimmies > you

and I'd like to add Social Distortions version of Ring of Fire to the list of covers that are better than the original.

I thought this was going to be about ridiculously hard songs to cover well.

Like The antipop by primus - to get it to the level of perfection as the album is really hard.

I'm all for people covering songs, but for some reason I don't like it when people cover Pantera. Although Pantera did some bitchin covers (Cat Scratch Fever, Planet Caravan, Hole In The Sky). If someone has a Pantera cover that's good though I'd be open to hearing it.

Cover whatever you want, it should be your choice, people may be very upset with you, but you have to take that risk. I don't nessecarily like it when people cover Stairway, because I try not to either, sometimes it pains me not to play it, but thats the way the cookie crumbles.

And, IMO, "Remember Tomorrow"- Opeth, an Iron Maiden cover.

And it's not because of me being a fan of Opeth, it's just a better version, IMO.


And I think that if you want to cover a song, cover it. I don't care if the song is "sacred", or if you think it sucks, it's not your place to make that decision.

Play what you want to play, and be happy with it.
