oh - and of the half-dozen covers I've heard that I've actually liked (I'm kinda with Ali on this one; rarely are the covers even close to as good as the originals, much less better) - The Ataris covering "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley - especially liked the swap from "Dead-Head" to "Black Flag" sticker on that 'ol Caddy.

and as promised, here is a synopsis of that music special about the life of producer Tom Dowd:

This is a total captivating documentary, and I have seen it five times already, and I'm aching it to buy the DVD too.

er..how about K covering Destroyer by the Kinks?

"there's a red, under my bed
and there's a little green man in my head
paranoia, they destroy ya"

thanks for the link K, id like to see that documentary.

agree with atari's cover, the black flag mention was brilliant.

It's not Maiden without Bruce (who also sounds pretty good solo - Chemical Wedding being the best).

Inline with that - Van Halen / NOT Van Hagar (though, Sammy's great by his lonesome)

I dont mind Van Hagar, but their work with Roth is just soooooooo much better

How about Bon Scott for ac/dc? While is replacement is better known(argh forgot his name) I've always liked Bon better.

Angus Something-or-other, right?

See, that's one I'm torn on... Think they sound the same no matter who sings, what album, or what song... heard one, heard 'em all - though "I've Got Big Balls" still brings a grin to my face everytime I hear it on the radio.

and btw? As for moi doing a cover song, if I haven't told you the story before, I'll have to relate the one about the time I sang "Oughtta Know" by Alanis Morrisette at a backyard barbecue.

My husband was angry at me for a week and I didn't even notice.

(It had something to do with a long neck beer bottle and some gestures I made during the moaning part of that particular song. )

and *chuckle*

yeah, C, PdV? I know I told you two the story.

i vaguely remember it... so hard to siphon through.  

other cover songs i like (just because I've been thinking about it):

War Pigs - originally by Sabbath, as covered by Faith no More

Mercyful Fate - originally by Mercyful Fate, as done by Metallica

Desperado - originally by The Eagles, as done by Clint Black (i know, just humor me).

Ones I don't understand at all:

Word Up - originally done by somebody, as covered by Korn - absolute ick - it sucked in the first place, why relive it?

Shameless - originally by Billy Joel, as covered by, uhm, whatever, Garth Brooks. What irritates me on this is that Garthy made it such a huge hit, when not only was it not original, his singing style doesn't even compare with Billy's. *sad*

Really Chris? I happen to love the Word Up cover (btw, it was originally done by some guy named Cameo). It's something I would never think of as working, but when I heard it, I really liked it.

And, um, David Lee Roth makes me a little sick to my stomach. I much prefer Van Hagar.

Dave, Dave, Dave... charm? No. Creepy, yeah. But as you say, that's his way.

truthfully, since i've been inundated with Word Up lately, it's started to grow on me.
just received A Perfect Circle - Emotive as a gift and found several of the songs are cover songs... if not all. I only recognized a few as such, but enough to suggest they all might be.

Imagine, originally by John Lennon was not too bad.

People are People (no clue who did that first) is just wierd and may take some time to either love or hate...

Depeche Mode did 'People are People' waaaay back in the early 80's when Industrial was just starting.  At first I thought it was Tears For Fears, then had to check.

i cannot get into word up lol have never liked the song. have you heard Korn's version of One by Metallica? Now that's a pretty perfect cover.


Speaking of emotive, i caught the video for imagine the other day, creepy.

and speaking of imagine, grabbed Lennon's new cd acoustic, its pretty interesting a little bit live, a little bit demo.

moving back up the line a nit... the current singer for AC/DC is Brian Johnson.

As for cover tunes that are already available:
Madonna doing Crazy Train (Ozzy)
A bluegrass version of Fade To Black (Metallica)
Bruce Dickenson (Iron Maiden) doing Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

JohsG, they covered it for MTV's Metallica Tribute..i think it was a series called Icons. They may have included it with their last album as a hidden or bonus track, not sure as I never picked that one up. It's amazing

Brian Johnson i knew it was a Johnson or Johnston. As for Madonna, she shouldn't be allowed to cover anything after the slaughter of American Pie

heh - Madonna on anything... no thanks.

Spent a little more time with Perfect Circle's "Emotive" and still don't know whether I like it or not (did the same thing with Lateralus, which I ended up really liking, though I don't know if this holds the same promise).

I think all the songs are covers on this album... though i'm using the term cover quite liberally. Freedom of Choice - originally by Devo - isn't too bad, though I think Psychotica did a much better job on that one than even the original. I still haven't been able to determine if "When the Levee Breaks" is supposed to be a cover of Zep or some random trip... weird stuffs man.

did the same with lateralus, i was pretty disappointed at first, after a couple of listens though, wow

speaking of tool and zeppelin covers, they did a great version of no quarter, leaked onto the net years ago but was finally made an official release on the salival dvd/cd. still have to get that one

quiet riot, i loved that first album cover.
