Covers! Covers! Covers! You want covers? Well, you are getting. . .COVERS! Even if you don’t want them. It’s Friday and I am pleased to give you all a double dose of covers. . .and shove them all up in your face [and make them grind too]. So kick back, relax, and let the music play!
Everyone’s lovable favorite classic. . .OK, fine, it’s one of my favorites.
Note: Korn is probably thought of more when presented with this cover. So I felt it was suitable to throw down something else.
Note: There are a few other covers, but I personally love this one. Also. . .[RBF] Reel Big Fish never covered this song. Stop it.
Note: RBF actually did this cover. Carry on. I can also sing the shit out of this song, especially, whilst drinking.
Also. . .
Louis: “Chris, where have you been?”
Chris: “I don’t know!”
Note: Yes, I know Five Finger Death Punch [5FDP] did a cover as well. Personal preference.
*Listed correctly on the French release. . . Was also not sung by the original members.
Note: Yes, they both are in German, because that’s the way it was done. . .but since I am a gracious host, I have included this one.
Whether you want Phil, Philip, or Dick. . .Valentine. . .[ha!] Now you can have all three singing.
There are a lot of great covers of this classic. . .Lacuna Coil, Breaking Benjamin, Keane, etc. I thought I’d add this version though.
Some covers are great. Some fall flat. . . Some should never have even been thought of. . .but that’s what makes it all a fantastic journey—experiencing all the greats, failures, and finding new things. It’s what clicks with you that makes it. I hope you all enjoyed this Cover Vs. Original edition of Music That Inspires You.
Check back next week for something. . .strange.
