cover #25: breaking the law

song: breaking the law cover: hellsongs original: judas priest comments: there are two kinds of law-breaking: the violent, kickass kind, in which chainsaws and nunchakus and bouncing off dirty brick walls in an abandoned warehouse come into play; and the non-violent hippy kind, where people sit around chanting and allow the police to swab mace directly into their eyeballs. each situation needs its own song, so here you go. first song is cover, second is original. where can you get…

cover #24: gangsta’s paradise

song: gangsta’s paradise cover: in fear and faith original: coolio comments: yet another in a vast, swirling collection of good songs covered badly by mid-range metal-rock ensembles that use a variation of the plankton theory of success: if you want to sound good, play and scream louder. first song is cover, second is original. where can you get it? coolio – gangsta’s paradise oh shucks, amazon doesn’t have gangsta’s paradise as covered by in fear and faith. darn. lyrics: as…

cover #23: i just want to have something to do

song: i just want to have something to do cover: garbage original: the ramones comments: with a couple notable (and irish) exceptions, i never really got into punk–it all sounds the same to me, honestly. this is the only ramones song i actually like, and the double-whammy against it is that garbage’s cover still kicks more ass. first song is cover, second is original. where can you get it? the ramones – i just want to have something to do…

cover #21: wish

i have become aware of an epic battle raging between nine inch nails fans and linkin park fans over the song “wish”. originally performed by nine inch nails on their album broken, it was covered by linkin park in june of 2004 in germany. which means that i’m really slow on the uptake, and that kids on youtube have nothing better to do. FOR INSTANCE, the highest rated comment on the linkin park video: “360 fans jealous of Linkin park…

cover #20: all that she wants

song: all that she wants cover band: knorkator original: ace of base comments: comedy central’s been running old-ass reruns of south park lately, and i watched the episode last night where kyle and stan find the “prehistoric” ice man from three years ago, and dr. mephisto’s midget assistant builds an environment for him with a constant loop of “all that she wants”. the end. first song is cover, second is original. where can you get it? ace of base –…

cover #18: our (my) lips are sealed

song: our lips are sealed cover band: poe original: the go-gos comments: poe’s version is actually titled “my lips are sealed”, seeing as she’s one person (mostly). first song is cover, second is original. where can you get it? go go’s – our lips are sealed amazon doesn’t have poe’s odd, disturbing version of “our lips are sealed” (featured in the movie “gossip”), so you’ll have to brave the wild frontier. lyrics: can you hear them they talk about us…

cover #17: crazy

song: crazy cover band: kidneythieves original: patsy cline comment: the original is “omg, i’m so lonely without you,” whereas the cover is kind of on par with bella’s reaction to edward leaving in “new moon”: absolutely psychotic. but this one’s in a good way. first song is cover, second is original. where can you get it? patsy cline – crazy kidneythieves – crazy lyrics: crazy i’m crazy for feeling so lonely i’m crazy crazy for feeling so blue i knew…
