The thing about covers is that you are going to like the cover more if it's from a band you like more than the original artist. At least that's how it is in my case. There are a few exceptions, however. For example even though I like NIN better than Johnny Cash, Cash's version of hurt is better than NIN's. I like most Metallica covers over the original artist's version mainly because Metallica is my favorite band. There are some exceptions, however. Sabbra Cadabra I like Black Sabbath's version a little more than Metallica's version. So going from that album, I will give you an example. A song called loverman. Metallica's version is far superior. Although it's worth noting Metallica is a different genre than the original. The original does have it's charms. In nearly every case I have a cover song, I also have the original on my itunes as well, it's fun to listen to both versions. Link to video. Link to video. sometimes I find when covers are done in different genres it is cool. I put this one in mostly for laughs. Surfin' bird. So I leave it to you all to opine whose singing is worse on this song. Link to video. Link to video.
