So... Whats better?

Whiskey In A Jar - Thin Lizzy

Whiskey In A Jar - Metallica

I admit Metallica's version is alright, but I personally like Thin Lizzy's the best

Personally I like the Metallica version
Jaymz' voice just fits it
the guitar tone is amazing too
I don't need a signature to tell you I don't need a signature!

The Peel Sessions - BBC Broadcasts 1972-1977 (Live) is the best modern version I've heard (Thin Lizzy). I like Thin Lizzy's album version too. I personally feel that metallica demeaned the song and out of disrespect for that I didn't capitalise their name.

Why? Justify yourself. How is a 17th century Irish folk song meant to be played like Metallica play it??

I prefer The Pogues version of it, followed by Metallica.

By the way James Hetfield's voice does NOT suit this song. It's cringeworthy from as soon as he opens is mouth 'As i was walking over....' all the way through '...ball and chain yea'
