10.27.10 My Top Ten Favorite Covers

My Top Ten Favorite Covers

Please no one be shitty. This is just my opinion. I'm open to debate about my list, but I'm not going to have an internet retard fight with anyone. Ha.
10I See Stars
Your Love

Originally performed by The Outfield, this song is really sweet. Devin Oliver's wonderful voice makes this cover that much more amazing.
9My Chemical Romance
Astro Zombies

An older song by The Misfits, this cover wasn't too amazing, but it was catchy and was most notably the only decent cover that was featured on the Tony Hawk's American Wasteland game soundtrack.
8Marilyn Manson
This Is Halloween

I hated EVERY song on that annoying Nightmare Before Christmas CD that got released for God knows why. This was the only stand out song because to me, a cover is all about making the song your own while staying somewhat faithful, and that's EXACTLY what was done here. Creepy voices and all.
7Of Mice & Men
Poker Face

I'm almost certain this Lady Gaga cover was meant to be a myspace joke, but it actually turned out pretty good. It also skyrocketed OM&M's career. Yay for myspace?
6Sea Of Treachery
Misery Business

Contrary to popular belief, this is actually the original version. No not really. But in all seriousness, this cover is good enough and fits this band so well, you'd actually think it was. Minus the fact it's written from a female perspective of course.
5Motionless In White
Dragula

In an age where the ridiculous trend of covering rap songs is "what's hot", MIW came out of nowhere with a dark and crazily accurate cover of a classic Rob Zombie song. Points for being original and making the cover amazing.
4HIM
Don't Fear The Reaper

The Blue Oyster Cult original catered more to hippies and such, while the HIM version takes the somewhat dark lyrics and turns this into a love song for goth kids. It's AWESOME.
3The Misfits
Monster Mash

This one doesn't really need a reason. Corny but creepy fun song for a creepy band. PERFECT.
2AFI
Jack The Ripper

This classic song by Morrissey has seen a really awful cover by My Chemical Romance, but this version blew me away. AFI really does make all the best covers.
1Winds Of Plague
Halloween

Originally performed by The Misfits, this song has had NUMEROUS covers already, but this was definitely the most original and unique one that really caught my attention. The screams fit perfectly for a Misfits song believe it or not.
