Dunno, haven't heard it :tongue:

But Limp Bizkit's version of Behind Blue Eyes is just so terrible and depressing. That is why I "hate" them. Not because they covered a Who-song. Do it good, and you've just done it. Just don't make it pisspoor and promote the hell out of it.

98% of covers are always CRAP!

Gary Jules' cover of "Mad World" is among the exceptions.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers live version of The Byrds' So you want to be a rock & roll star is great. Not really the same style, which I think is necessary to do if you're doing a cover to make it special.

It may sound silly, but in school once there was a group that made a pretty different version of AC/DC's TNT. Totally acoustic. My sister played cello on that one :oops:

I hate the way Axl Rose moans during the chorus. The original is far, far, far better. :tongue:
I prefer the original version of both Knockin' on Heaven's door and All Along the Watchtower.
