Cover songs can have a negative effect as well as a positive effect. For instance, the first song I heard from Ugly Kid Joe was their cover of Black Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf". I hated it! Didn't like the way it came out. Didn't like the vocals. Didn't like anything about it. Then their hit song "Everything About You" from the same CD was released. I loved that but still won't listen to their cover of "Sweet Leaf". Another hit of theirs was a cover of "Cats in the Cradle". I liked that too but wasn't really familiar with the original. You are more attached if its a cover of a song you already love. Some managed to get it right though. So here are some covers, for better or for worse, that I think got it right even if it took a different turn than the original.
BONUS: Metallica and Lady Gaga "Moth Into Flame" (Metallica) OK, so its still Metallica but with Lady Gaga so its different than what is on the CD so its kinda like she is covering it. The actual show was a mess since the mics were working for half the song but luckily this dress rehearsal was captured.
