Norther - Youth gone Wild (Skid Row)

Worst cover I've ever heard. Even worse than SFU's Graveyard Classics trilogy combined, listening from beginning to end.

Okay maybe not that bad, but YGW should not have been remade by the likes of Norther. Even when I really liked them I always hated that song.

The original version isn't good either, I'll give you that. So it's not like they tarnished a masterpiece. It's just like...why would you pick a bad song just to prove you can actually make it worse? SFU butchered classics, which is easy to do because you're taking a great song and trying to do your own version but make it great still...not a good formula, as the original version was great because it was done the way it was done. It had a formula.

That's why I say Norther's cover is worse than anything SFU did. They took a bad song, which should be easy to improve... Realistically that just didn't happen.

This guy does a lot of covers of annoying pop \ hip hop songs and some of them are pretty cool.

Kanye West Original Song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co0tTeuUVhU&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=MLGxdCwVVULXd4aUDsb_CKDIl61iOFWAlF

Michael Johnson cover version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PW7UggEasCY&feature=watch_response

Read the lyrics so you can get the flow of the words, I actually think the cover version has more rhythm.

So far any cover made by Lemmy and Motorhead have kicked ass
for example:
The Trooper-Iron Maiden
Breaking the Law- Judas Priest
Whiplash-Metallica

Children of Bodom - oops I did it again (yes, Britney Spears, but it's still such a funny cover!)
Turisas - Rasputin (Boney-M)
Five Finger Death Punch - Bad Company (Bad Company)
Apocalyptica -any of their many Metallica covers & also Inquistion Symphony (Sepultura)
HIM - Wicked Game (Chris Isaak)

...and there's probably a couple more I'm forgetting.

I don't know if I mentioned this but Vader is an awesome cover band. Check out their version of Thin Lizzy's "angel of death"


Another good metal cover is Entombed's version of "god of thunder" by Kiss
